SOURCE: oil pressure problem

You oil pressure sending unit has gone bad, it's common to go bad and some even leak oil. 
The oil pressure sensor is on the back of the block on the passenger side, you can get to it from the top and not from the bottom. There are (2) switches back there that screw in to the block and you can only see it from the top of the engine. The Oil Pressure Sending Unit is the one wire harness with a green and white strip on it. The other switch has more wires to it. 
When you pick up the new sensor, make sure you get the right one. make sure you get the Oil Pressure Sending Unit which sends variable oil pressure and has only one quick connect for the wire connector. The oil pressure switch is the one that only activates the oil light on older engine
Once you get the right part at Auto Zone for around $9.00, disconnect the wire clip with the green with white strip on it. and use a deep spark plug socket with a extension and u joint to get the sensor out. The sensor comes with teflon tape already and no oil should leak out from the block. It as simple as replacing a bolt and reconnecting the wire connector. 
Good luck and hope this helps, take no more then 10 min to do but about 5 hours for the engine to cool off LOL

Check the Alternator / Powersteering belts .
One of them will be damaged and loose.
Hope this helps.

As with any no-start situation, you need to know if you have spark to the plugs, fuel to the injectors, and normal compression to proceed.

I just purchased a used 2001 Crown Vic lx. today when i cranked it for the first time the oil light came on for about five minutes. i just put a quart in yesteday. after five minutes the light went off....


if it is just oil level sensor not too worry, other wise it sounds like you have low oil pressure most oil pressure sensors turn on lght below about 5-7 psi. its odd to me that light took so long to go out and are you running proper wt oil 10-30 say for your climate? most of the time engines warm-up oil thins a bit and so at low engine speeds, oil light comes on when engine is warm. one other thought was that you say it was running for 5 mins before oil light went out-did it sound bad? ticking or knocking like it really did not have oil pressure? or possibly sensor/gauge problem.

Loud ticking noise on startup


I would have you oil pressure checked. The oil pump or bearings could be going out. The lifter noise on this car usually will go away faster then 5 minutes. I think the noise is lasting a little to long.
