    Hi Aaronhill and Faxfarmer, I have had the same issue on A-T OIL TEMP COMING ON after driving fast for an hour on the highway, I pulled over for five minutes (engine off) and the light didn{t turned on again. I stop later to check fluid level and temp, and all was OK. Never happened again in the last two weeks. Can you share the sensor specs and location to check it?

IS IT NECESSARY TO CHANGE THE OIL FILTER OF THE AUTPMAMTIC TRANSMISSON ON DODGE 2005 GRAND CARVAN SXT V6V 3.8L? THANK U FOR YOUR HELP I AM FROM LIBYA.


Unless you know for sure that it has been changed in the past, I would change it, just to help prolong the life of the transmission, and have piece of mind knowing it has been done and when. Be sure to change oil with nothing other than Mopar transmission oil. It has been proven time and time again, that other oils that say they are same, are not, and you will get better life and performance by using Mopar oil. It is also highly recommended to use Autopar/Mopar filter as well. I don't work for Chrysler/dodge, but did for years, and know that when it comes to the transmission, don't go with anything else but Mopar/Autopar Parts on the transmission especially. You may be able to try other brand of parts in some areas, but don't do it in this case.

On my 93 Dodge Caravan ES 3.3L, when it comes to a stop and idles (at a light mostly) the check gauges light comes on. When the check gauges light comes on the oil gauge is at the bottom. When I tap...


Okay What it means is that the oil in your car is either low in level or the oil pressure at low revolutions is low. I highly recommend you to stop driving the car when this happen because you can internally damage the engine with a low oil or a low pressure of oil. Check the oil level first..make sure level is fine and oil looks good. Black and burned oil will give you a low oil pressure as well. If it happen that your car need a oil change. Make sure you get it done and see if the problem goes away. Very rarely oils pressure sensor goes bad but if oil is new and level is fine you can take the oil pressure sensor and connect a tester for a oil pressure. If this is not under the manufacturer specifications.. oil pump is worn out and you have to replace it for a new one.
Good luck and don't forget to rte me. Thanks

What kind of oil do i use for a 2000 dodge carivan?


ENGINE OIL

You will need to use a 10W-30 grade engine oil, such as any of the following Mobil products.
"Fully synthetic" oils are more expensive. Conventional oils or syn blend engine oils are fine for the vehicle but need to be changed more frequently.

Mobil 1 Extended Performance 10W-30
fully synthetic motor oil ;

fully synthetic motor oil;

Mobil Clean 7500 10W-30
synthetic blend motor oil ;

a conventional motor oil;

What weight oil do I put into my 1993 Lumina?


With an older engine you need something of low viscosity when cold and high viscosity when hot and that is also resistant to mechanical shear forces. Try some branded (Mobil etc.) fully synthetic 5/40 multi-grade. Fully synthetic oils do not need to be changed nearly as often as the older traditional engine oils. Given the extended periods over which these oils can be used they possibly work out cheaper than using more frequently changed traditional (cheaper) oils. Always renew the oil filter when changing oil.

Changed thermostat,flushed radiator,fan comes on but it takes a long time,car temp guage goes all the way up to H(hot) until i turn heater on full blast then goes back to normal temp????


have you try to change oil? some times engine heat does' not just come from malfunctioning of the cooling system . But sometimes its the oil that runs to the engine . if the engine oil is dirty already it could also cause the engine to over heat. do to change the engine oil of your Acura Legend.

Oil change light coming on


The Patroit uses a combination of engine run time, mileage, and temp to determine when the oils needs to be changed. If you do a lot of idling you could require a change sooner than the 6000 mile interval. If you do get your oil cahnged or do it by yourself, here is the way to reset the oil warning from the owners manual:

Low Oil pressure light in idle at stop


Depending on the amount of miles, maintenance records, or how hard the car has been driven either by a previous owner, or by yourself. The engine's main crankshaft bearings or the connecting-rod bearings could be excessively worn.

Also, it could very well be a wiring problem to the sensor and/or computer causing the problem.
