2005 Freestar there is an engine light on

This may sound silly but I have an engine light on I thought it was low on oil but I put oil in but its still on? I don't have a manual. I was told it would cost me $80 for a manual for the minivan.

Go to your loca Advanced Auto or Auto zone and ask for a FREE check engine diagnostics test
They will hook up a tester and tell you exactly what is wrong.
I bet 10$ its a 02 sensor or a MAF (mass air flow sensor)
Just drop by and they will handle it for you and even give you prices on the replacement part.

and hope this helped

This is most likely the Check Engine Lite, it means that there is a problem with the emission control system, go to a Kragen and have the system tested for trouble codes.

Check engine light blinking car shaking, oil light on after a few miles from starting

May be low oil, low oil pressure (faulty oil pump) or a bad pressure switch. When your at highway speeds the pump, pumps faster & brings the oil to the right PSI. Try a thicker oil than called for, get the oil pressure checked,oil leaks? & get the switch ckd out.

What energizes ac relay on 2005 freestar

The low side pressure switch in the AC low pressure line signals the PCM (computer control) to close the AC compressor relay and raise the idle speed. If the system is low on refrigerant charge the relay will not allow the system to engage the compressor, this is because the oil that lubricates all the works is suspended in the AC refrigerant, if that is low then the system gets no lubrication and will quickly seize up..

Low oil light came on 2005 equinox checked oil it was low there is a ticking sound. I put 2 quarts in started back up, light is still on also still ticking.

The lifters have to be primed with oil. This may take a while. Let the engine run, after a while the oil pressue light will go out, and the clicking will stop. If you have lost oil pressure the engine will shut off as a safe guard so it is alright to let the engine run while clicking as long as you have oil in the case.

2005 Ford Freestar has started contantly beeping when in any gear except park. Sounds like it is coming from inside - in the back of the van. Any suggestions?

I have the same problem we got the van checked there is NOTHING wrong with the engine. it just randomly beeps its a set of 5 beeps about 4 times. its seems like it could be a check engine sound but no lights are on the dash.

I just purchased a used 2001 Crown Vic lx. today when i cranked it for the first time the oil light came on for about five minutes. i just put a quart in yesteday. after five minutes the light went off....

if it is just oil level sensor not too worry, other wise it sounds like you have low oil pressure most oil pressure sensors turn on lght below about 5-7 psi. its odd to me that light took so long to go out and are you running proper wt oil 10-30 say for your climate? most of the time engines warm-up oil thins a bit and so at low engine speeds, oil light comes on when engine is warm. one other thought was that you say it was running for 5 mins before oil light went out-did it sound bad? ticking or knocking like it really did not have oil pressure? or possibly sensor/gauge problem.

Engine light came on. The van runs okay for a few minutes then starts to sputter. It was low on oil so I put some of the only oil I had onhand 20w40. Could this do any damage to the engine? What else would...

The sputtering and check engine light sounds like a bad ERC valve or oxygen sensor.

You can take it to most repair shops and they can run a diagnostics for free. Auto Zone will do the same thing.
