I have a 1999 Dodge Stratus and when the car comes to a complete stop after its been warmed up, the oil light comes on. This goes away as soon as I step on the gas. I've checked the oil and there is a sufficient amount. Also, the check engine light is on for an emissions system failure. What is causing the oil light to come on and could the oil issue cause the check engine light to come on?

HOLDEN 1990 V8 STATESMAN, keeps breaking down, just before it does the oil light flickers on and off, sometimes it stays on for a few seconds then goes off, then my engine light comes on, not long after that it dies, sometimes if I leave the car it will start after half hour to a hour but is getting worse. I check the oil regulary and it says its full. Replaced- internal fuel pump/external, fuel filter, spark plugs/leads and coil pack. If you have any suggestions It would be much appreciated!


Your oil light is not a symptom. It's flickering because as the engine dies, the oil pressure is dropping. The engine's power pumps the oil, so this is pretty normal. The engine slows down, the pump will also, and there will be less pressure. \012 ... Chevrolet Beretta

The oil light in my 1985 Mazda 626 keeps coming on although there is plenty of oil in the engine. I checked and topped the oil up less than a week ago (before a road trip) and today the oil light came on. I checked the oil level and it was sitting on the full line on the dipstick. Are there any other reasons the oil light would come on and stay on?


The oil light will come on with low oil pressure (it is most likely a faulty / blocked sensor). This could be a simple sensor fault or blocked pick-up or a problem with your pump. I would get it checked out - if the oil pick-up needs to be replaced ... Mazda 626

I was coming back from the store which is 6 miles away. The engine transmission line read hot with the oil light on. I shut the car off and checked the transmission fluid and it was very low, so I put some coolant in up to the line, and checked the oil and it was full. I tried to start the engine and the transmission light was on and I tried to start the car and it stalled. It also knocked a little and it smelled like rotten eggs. What is wrong?


The smell was the catolic converter, the knock was probably a spark knock because the engine was so hot, i need to know what the make and model is before i can give you much more advice, i hope you did not put coolant ... Chrysler Sebring
