Oil pressure light on and wont start

Driving back home, sped up to pass a car when oil pressure light came on. Stopped and checked oil but oil was fine. went ahead a little further, then the jeep died. Started back up fine and made it to gas station. checked oil again and again fine. tried to make it home and died again. this time it wont start. its not the battery. oil level is fine. no overheating or leaks. it only clicks once. im afraid the engine may be froze but how and what are some other possibilties. 2002 jeep liberty limited edition 3.7 with 108,000 miles.

    My son was driving down the road and the engine just quit. We got a new battery but that didn't fix anything. Also a new starter. What else could be the problem, and is something typical with a Jeep Liberty?

Well I had the same problem and wow was I surprised man. I have a code machine that plugs into my car and tells me what wrong with it then I fix it. It read that I had a misfire #1 so that means my spark plug is dirty or something like that. When I took off the spark plug it was smashed in that was a good sign.. I called a mechanic friend of mine and he said that my head and piston were damaged but would not really know unless he took it apart. What he said was true and cost me a great deal of money..!!!! Now searching the web I have found that there many jeep liberty with the same problem just different spark plug locations so I wonder if Jeep knows of this issue but will not acknowledge it.. If you need more information please email me at fgarcia760@verizon.net

A/C kicks off and recirc light comes on


AC clutch is going to the dogs. Or the high pressure switch is giving it up. This is assuming AC belt is not slipping. Also check the system charge as it may need recharging.

Did you check the oil level? After making sure that oil and water are at proper levels, and BATTERY is fully charged, start it again while checking the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. Also check and make sure vacuum line to fuel pressure regulator is good and hooked up.
If it doesn't start,try it with the MAF unhooked. Sometimes a bad MAF sensor will keep them from starting.
Outside chance of a bad alternator too. don-ohio

Driving home, 2003 Dodge neon starts to slow down, oil light has come on intermittedenly before, engine started to lose power, brakes locked up, and steering wheel locked up. Car had to be towed. Thanks.


lets hope its not a bad motor from lack of oil pressure, the loss of brakes and steering is due to the engine stopped running this is normal, but hte oil light coming on with the engine running is not good, you will need to see if the engine spins and trys to start, this will tell you a little bit, if it spins then it didnt lock up, and maybe its a fuelpump or timing belt that let go, you will have to do some testing ,check for fuel pressure and spark at the plugs,

99 cavalier battery light comes on but new battery....


it sounds to me like it could be the alternator im afraid but the only real cheap way to tell is time. if you continue to drive this and keep a check on wether it still starts or lights dim, with it being a new battery it is going to take a while fot it to go flat. if it does then try not to drive it too much as this will break it and cost you even more.
