Kia Sedona oil light will not go out

VEHICLE: 2006 Kia Sedona LX 3.8L, V6, MFI, DOHC, VIN -, Eng Desg -

MILEAGE: 140000

Customer Concern: Performed an oil change and now the oil light is on when the vehicle is running.


1. Verify that there is a strainer tube that snaps into the filter cap and goes down through the oil filter cartridge into the engine. The port in the bottom of the strainer tube has a small o-ring where it fits into the engine. It is common for this tube to get stuck in the oil filter when the filter cap is removed and it is commonly thrown away with the old filter.

Potential Causes: Oil Filter Cap

Confirmed Fix: Replaced Oil Filter Cap: The inner piece that attaches to the bottom of the cap was missing.
