Oil Light comes on while breaking hard.

Currently driving an 03' G35 AT Sedan. When ever I break hard the oil light comes on and then turns off when I accelerate. I've also noticed a slight knocking noise during accelerating when the car switches from 3rd to 4th gear. I have a feeling that the noise is coming from the lifters not receiving enough oil due to an oil pump that is going bad and since the oil pump is going bad the oil light comes on when I brake. My check engine light also came on last night. I checked my gas cap and turn clicked it about 7 times so I know the check engine light didn't come on because of that.

Please let me know if any of what I'm saying makes sense. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I would assume that you checked your oil level? You didnt mention it, so thought id check.

I checked the oil level today and I can't really get a good reading because when I pull the dipstick out its covered in oil. I wipe it clean and stick it back in and its still cover in oil when I pull it out. It was never like that before. My car has 91k miles

^Let the car sit for 30 minutes to an hour after driving then check the oil to get an accurate reading.

^Yep.

The VQ35 is really weird about not giving you an accurate reading unless it's been sitting for a while.
I've never had another car act like that

Make sure it's sitting on level ground, and give it a good hour without cranking just to be on the safe side.

Change the oil. Not something you want to mess around with. Measure how much oil comes out.

Also...get the cel code read.

Agree..


On a side note, check your oil once it's sat for a bit to get an accurate reading.

If you keep on breaking, you probably broke something...
