Default Engine light

Whelp today the Engine light came on, only good thing was i got to try out the fancy dance with the key to see the codes.

P0522
P0441

I do think the oil pressure sensor needs replaced because it occasionally when cold, has the oil light on and if you shut the car off and restart it it goes away. (Oil's been fine and is clean.)

And i did put gas in about 80 miles before the engine light came on.

I heard the one code can be from a dirty sensor that fuel injector cleaner can fix, or it could have been on from parking at an incline.

It may sound odd, but i haven't yet 'bought' the car. It needs brakes and rotors (They make the steering wheel shake like h e l l ) and it needs control arms. They are getting fixed before i officially buy it. I'm taking the payments over from my bf.

My question is, am i looking at replacing the oil pressure sensor and putting fuel injector cleaning in or am i looking at more extensive repairs? The car only has 62k

Default Re: Engine light

Here ya go:

P0441 Evap Purge Flow Monitor -Insufficient or excessive vapor flow detected during evaporative emission system operation.

A Diagnostic Trouble Code indicates that the Powertrain Control Module has recognized an abnormal condition in the system. DTC's are the results of a system or circuit failure, but do not directly identify the failed component or components.

Possible causes for P0441 include:

Intermittent Condition
Checking Evap Purge Solenoid Functionality
Evap Purge Solenoid Vacuum Supply

You will need a DRB III scan tool and diagnostic manual to troubleshoot the issue.

...and, the biggest cause of the code is a loose or ill fitting gas cap. Give it three good clicks to make sure it's on tight.

The P0522 is the oil pressure sensor. Lots of owners have had to replace theirs. Not expensive but a little trouble to get to. Either that or it's about an hour's labor at a garage to replace.

So pretty much need an oil pressure sensor and the other was most likely gas cap issue?
