If the eml light is still on it has probably locked the car in limp mode. Your going to need a garage with the diagnostic tools to re set the fault code that the car has registered on the computer....keep your eye on the oil level on this car they are known and it is considered acceptable for the ictdi engine to use a liter of oil in 600 miles!!!!

Toyota Avalon 2001 oil pressure light came on yesterday and I checked oil level and filled appropriately, cam on again as I was about half way home engine shut off before I could pull over, waited a few...


The warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, not necessarily that the oil level is low.
The problem could be the pressure switch, or you really could have low oil pressure.
Driving the car with low oil pressure will damage the engine.

Does the 2000 dodge stratus has an automatic shut down relay that triggers when the oil pressure is to low?


The CPU has read low oil pressure and has shut down the system to protect the engine which it has done. However it cannot tell when you add oil so to get it to change you will have to reset the CPU.. Possible removing the battery lead for 5-10 minutes will reset or have a code reader instrument reset it.

Engine shuts down after driving about 20 miles let cool down for 10 min. and it will go again


You didn't say whether or not the car is running hot so I'm guessing here. If it is running hot then the temp switch could shut it down for obvious reasons. So could the oil pressure switch. The oil pressure switch will shut your engine down if the oil pressure drops below a certain point. This is caused by lack of oil pressure. Lack of oil pressure can be caused by low oil level, weak oil pump or oil too thin to lubricate. If the engine is running hot that can thin out the oil to the point of no use to the engine. If you have a high mileage engine and are still using 5W30, 10W30 oil then try upgrading to 10W40, 15W40 or even 20W50.

Your engine could be running lean which would create a hot situation that would cool fairly quickly. If this isn't adressed you can look at catastrophic engine failure in your future.

You could also be looking at an internal problem such as warped heads, bad head gasket, worn out oil pump.

If it was my car, I would be taking to someone to find out the exact reason it is doing this. I would likely take it home and fix it myself but I think you should have a professional diagnose this more accurately. Hope this helps.

I have a 2007 chevy silverado. It was low on oil. I put 2 quarts in, oil light went off. When I drove it the low oil pressure light came on and also said engine shut down. What could be causing this...


If its reading low oil pressure I would first change your oil and filter.A clogged oil filter will cause your oil pressure to drop.Also remove your pressure sending unit and hook up a direct oil pressure guage to see what your actual pressure is.Its very possible that your oil pump could be bad.Those would be the most probable reasons for low oil pressure.The engine shut down means that your your engine has a fail safe to protect your motor from blowing up.

Hi, I was driving my 2003 toyota runx 1.6 RT when the red oil light came on the dashboard. While I was driving the engine switched off. What could be the problem?


check oil levels every fill up of gas.
if you see drop of level then, then check more often.
same answer for 100 years,and will never change. (otto cyle engines, ICE)
if not, say good bye to $3000 for a new engine.

Does check engine light or wrench light come on? If yes, get free computer scan from Autozone or other parts store that offers free scan. Sounds like a sensor is failing

You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.

OIL LIGHT


the sending unit is the one attched to either the oil pan or the top of the engine block near the intake, it tells the engine what your oil pressure is.

The oil pressure switch is the component that will shut your car off if the oil pressure gets to a dangerous low or high.

Note: If one or the other of these are not working, it can make your car putt, make the gauge stop working and even in some cases the car may not start at all, or start then shut down.

Always reset your computer after replacing any electrical parts.

you do this by taking the positive battery cable off for 10 mins.
this resets your computer back to 0's.
