1992 Park Avenue Has no oil pressure what so ever for over a year now according to the gauge. The oil neddle is all the way past the high end of the gauge. Neddle will flicker in colder weather. I just changed the oil pressure sending unit and that didnt fix the gauge. Someone please tell me how to trouble shoot or something. Could it be my oil pump? Would it take that long for an oil pump to go out?

Car is running hot when i stop, but then cools off when i start moving, I brought it into the shop and was told i have oil leaking into the coolant, which was then told that it could go the other way and be real bad, He told me I need radiator flush, new thermostat and need new intake gaskets. Was told it needed fixed within 5 to 6 months or the whole engine would blow soon. Told me it be around 750.00 for everything. Does this all sound right? Its a chevy venture 2001 and I just got it please h

Yes that can be causing the issue and if it is not fixed ASAP you will have REALLY big problems instead of just having to drain some fluid. Please rate ... 1991 Nissan Pathfinder

I just purchased a 1990 911 C4 with 66k miles on it. It had some work done to the oil lines before I bought it to fix some leaks etc. Overall the car runs really well with one exception. When I'm sitting at a stop light for more than a minute or two the idle drops and the car will seem to lose power and stall. The only way around this that I've found is to continue to keep the engine revving around 2000 rpm? Help please.

I have a pin hole in my turbos intercooler! I believe it's my intercooler! It's a thin radiator that runs oil through! Anyway, I was wondering if there was an easy fix or if I need to just get a new one! Then, is it worth it! Thanks for your time!

Yes,it will be safe to run as long as you keep the oil level up,but note how many miles it takes to leak a quart,it can get pretty costly to keep adding a quart everyday and may be more cost effective to just fix the leak.Hope this helps. ... 1988 Nissan Pulsar
