When I am slowing to a stop, my engine idle gets really low (like 500rpm or less) and sometime stalls. At the same time, the oil light comes on. It does this all the time, and yes I’ve had my oil changed recently and actually I just checked it the other day and it was fine (along with all other fluids).
I’ve had the mechanic take a look at this three times and every time something gets fixed but this problem remains. They now say it’s a ghost. It is not the air intake (I’ve had all of the hoses checked and a bad one replaced). It’s not the electrical (I’ve had the spark plugs and cables replaced about a year and a half ago). I’ve pretty much had everything that a car of a certain age needs done fixed/replaced in the past year or so, and I still can’t figure out what could be causing this. A recent show had a similar problem, but the gal didn’t mention the low idle/stalling. In that show they mentioned that she should have the oil pressure gauge checked or replaced, but would that cause the low idle/stalling? I don’t know what to do and I’m very reluctant to go to a dealer
