Check gages light turns on and doesn't go off. Already had the oil changed, the oil pressure needle keeps marking 0. It had the same problem once but I changed the oil and kept working fine; then about 2 months after that oil change the oil pressure needle started to drop again, so I changed the oil once again, kept working ok, and since that oil change it only has been less than a month, and the oil pressure needle dropped to 0, and the check gages light is on
At this point I would strongly suggest that you have your mechanic hook a mechanical oil pressure guage to the engine and make absolutlely sure that the pressure is up to manufacturers standards. It may simply be a failing oil pressure sending unit, ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
We just got the oil changed about a week ago and went to reset the oil. It will not reset. The technicians at the place where we had the oil changes were about as frustrated as I have seen technicians be. I just want to drive the @!^&*!! car off a cliff! No matter what I do I cannot get it to reset to 100%. Instead it stays at 0% and keeps coming up that way. How can I get the car's computer to change to 100% for the oil??

My PT Cruisers right windshield wiper fluid sprayer isn't working...at the oil change place they told me the plastic part that the tube attaches to is broke...I feel like they must've broke it because it stopped working right after the last time they changed my oil. I went to a different oil change place today and they told me the same thing and also said I'd have to go to dealer for part..they can't fix it there. Has anyone else had this problem?
Yes i have seen these break. unfortunately, i dont think you will ever get anyone to own up to breaking it. if you with to try and change it yourself, it is not a difficult repair. it comes as a kit from the dealer. ... 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser

98 buick lesabre oil pressure dropped to 0 and engine died. added 1 quart oil, waited 30 minutes, started and drove 5 miles then oil pressure dropped to 0 and engine died. does this sound like a bad oil pump? where is the oil pump and is it hard to change for a "handy" person? thank you.
My sister had the same problem. There are 2 sensors that can cause this when they go bad. One is the oil pressure switch, which is located near the oil filter. When the PCM reads this switch, and gets a low reading, it will automatically kill the eng ... 1998 Buick LeSabre
Oil warning light came on while driving home, then started flickering on / off for rest of journey 2mls. changed oil filter and oil used recomended Mobil 0 / 30. oil light went out on starting but would come on during gear change, added wynns oil treatment and light has gone out, work colleague advised that there is a sludge prob with these cars and that i should not drive ??
Oil light at idle is a sign of wear. If it only happens at low revs and this is an old car, I wouldn't fix it unless it got worse. If it's a newer car, get a new oil pump. ... Saab 9 3

Likely a turbo impeller shaft seal failure. If you want to confirm, pull the inlet to the charge cooler (driver's side, behind bumper cover 7mm clamp) If oil drips out you have a bad shaft seal in the turbo, if not I would perform a leak down test to ... 2004 Saab 9-3

Oil Changing plug location? I am changing the oil myself for the first time on my 99 Land Cruiser and need the exact location of the drain plug. I find the oil filter easily behind the panel but need info on the drain plug. Thanks, Claudio
The drain plug is located on the bottom of the oil pan, it pays to renew the drain plug gasket at the same time to ensure there are no oil leaks . ... 1999 Toyota Land Cruiser

Well it could be the sending unit for the gauge.But odds are the oil pump or engine bearings are worn out.As the engine warms up, the metal spaces expand and the oil gets thinner. The oil pressure drops some under normal conditions, but not ... 1996 Chevrolet C1500

I have a 1999 ford e-250 v-6. i had the oil changed at a firestone where i always have it changed. a week later the oil pressure started dropping to 0 at idle it go back to normal while driving. i replaced the oil pump and it didn't fix the problem. any suggestions???
Mileage? replacing the oil pump never fixes a oil pressure problem. has the oil pressure been checked with a mechanical gauge? If it really is "0" then the engine has to come apart and bearing clearances checked. ... Ford E-Series

I have a Grand Cherokee 2001 4.0 6cyl. Thermostat replaced, oil sending switch replaced but still losing coolant fluid. About from full to indicator light in six weeks. My oil pressure gauge went to almost 0. I had it checked out and the mechanic said the oil was very thin. Changed oil and filter and oil pressure resumed main seal products to correct this to 40psi at 1600 and 20psi at idle (pressure in the oil pan). For the next 1000 miles it was good, and then the oil gauge was showing a dip a
Hate to say it, but sounds like a blown gasket or cracked head - the mere indication of the white mily substance.If you haven't done so, it is time to do a compression test. Alternatively have you checked your oil pump itself?Best r ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

It violently shakes when parked or when stopped with brake applied, doesn't shake when moving though, rpms is like 500rpm constant so between 0 and 1 on the gauge. it also notice at night my lights stay dim till the car warms up and than they are bright, the car also runs sluggish till the car warms up, the belt squeals till warmed up also, i start running mid grade it helped a little with the sluggishness, has a new air filter, new oil change, new tranny oil change, new brakes, new brake fluid
If it shakes, it is normally either a bad motor mount (if the car runs fine) or your car is "missing" on one or more cylinders (misfire). The belt will squeal because they stretch with use. That can be solved by replacing the belt or tightening the b ... 2003 Kia Spectra

Have a 1999 Z71 chev truck with 5.3 L engine that has fluctuating oil pressure. Started with low oil pressure after start with engine clak that disappeared after it warmed up. Changed oil and found sludge in crankcase. cleaned as best we could and blew back through oil filter housing. Now engine shows ''0'' oil pressure after start for about 10 seconds then goes to mid range on gauge. After it warms up, oil pressure starts to drop and engine appears to labour intermittitently.
In some cases where the oil is not changed properly, the oil pump screen maybe plugging or your oil filter is defective. Fram is a good filter. If there is no problem found, replace the pressure sensor. ... 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

First they should never of put 50 wt in the car. They obviously put the pickup for the oil on wrong which is in the pan,, if the car had not had oil pressure issues to begin with. I really think they owe you a motor if it is seized. I hope all this ... 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe

I have an 08 mazda3 with 29k. Local oil change shop said my coolant tested at 0 degrees when it should test at -30 to -40. They recommended I change the coolant. This doesn't seem right as the owners manual recommends changing at 120k or 10 yrs. Is there a problem? Ihaven't had it tested by anyone else. Should the coolant be changed after only 29k?
No if you have not had any problem with your cooling system, I would have it check some where else before you have them do any thing, you can also buy a coolant tester at any parts place for about $5.00. this type of coolant should last a good 100,00 ... Mazda MAZDA3
