    help oil light on a 06 wrx

    I have a 06 wrx, 3 day ago the oil came on but is only at idle if I give it a little throttle it goes away. Is it my oil pump?

    Have you checked your oil level?

    Could be the pump, could be the sender in the oil pan (forget the nomenclature)

    It's not the type of oil. Park the car and find the problem.

    Yeah like SD said.. nothing to do with you running T6... but definitely not safe to drive.
    The Anti-N00b. Use "Search", YES, you need a tune. NO, you don't need a BOV. Don't try to make you car shoot fire, and change your freaking oil.

    Here's another take on this issue: does your oil light come on strong, or is it kind of dim? Sometimes if the oil pressure sensor on the top of the engine block behind the alternator gets wet or had accumulated coolant residue, on humid days the oil light will come on (it's an LED and doesn't take much current to do so). When the engine gets warm and the moisture evaporates, then the light goes off (my car does this after I had an upper radiator hose break).

    I would hook up a guage and check the oil pressure before I drove it if I were you. Once you confirm that you can decide what to do.
