Hi, newbie here
i have a recently purchased 2000 1.3 Jimny 53k miles, oil pressure light blinks/comes on only at idle whether engine hot or cold, had oil leak as well (probably around oil pan, poss from pressure switch/filter) which i thought could be cause of low oil pressure, so drained old oil (which wasn't too bad), took off oil pan, oil pump pick up and filter not at all sludged, put in new oil (5W30) and filter, taped thread on oil pressure switch & plug next to it. Leak fixed, light still coming on although perhaps not as much as before. Otherwise engine is very smooth & sounds fine.
Tried to check resistance on pressure switch which didn't seem conclusive as it was saying around 13 Ohms when engine stopped, but I only have a basic multimeter. new switch probably my next step, i don't have an oil pressure guage unfortunately
anyone got any obvious thoughts given it's only at idle? idle seems at correct speed - points at third white line around 700rpm), shows no signs of stalling.
cheers
Ben

have now changed oil to 10W40, (was going to go 20W50, but as only done 50K miles and engine should not be that worn i was advised not to go any thicker). still same issue - flickers on at warm idle. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
