oil light issues

so a week or so ago my jerry rigged egr plug fell out and i was running open headers for awhile until i could find a new solution (lots of backfire sounded terrible etc) eventually the oil light started flickering just barely and then one day it finally turned itself all the way on to flashing.. i dont seem to lose any preformance ive been driving around for a few days and the engine still seems to be healthy sometimes the oil light will come on and turn itself off immediately other times it will stay on until i shut the car off and restart it other times it will be solid at idle and only flash when im pressing on the gas. i have checked all my oil levels and re plugged my headers. the light still comes on after a little bit of driving.. any help would be great

Re: oil light issues

Sounds to me like the connector is not making good contact on the oil pressure sending unit. Check to make sure it's plugged in correctly. It's located on the back of the engine, above the oil filter. It might be easier to access from below after raising the car up on jack stands, if you still have the stock intake on there.
