:Check the oil level immediately to make sure they filled it properly, DO NOT drive the car until you do. If they did not fill to capacity u may do serious damage to your engine. Let me know what the level is. countrycurt0

    I don't know where the oil pressure sending unit is located on your car, if it was unplugged, the light would be on all the time, not go off when u give it some gas. It is possible (quite a coincidence) that the oil pressure unit is defective and decided to act up when the oil was changed. I would have it checked (oil pressure) to make sure it isn't low pressure. Let me know what u find out. good luck! countrycurt0

I have 2006 Honda Accord se, engine lite started flashing then permantly on bout 1 1/2 moths. Now won't start but belt still goes round, what could it be?

You drove with a flashing check engine light and then with it on solid. Flashing check engine light means STOP DRIVING and get it fixed. So this sounds like an abused and neglected car to me. Get the trouble codes read that are stored in the computer. Check for good fuel pressure and spark. Fix one or both.

Bad gas millage

Some depends on what kind of tires you have and air pressure. The traction rating of a tire mean how soft it is and how well it grabs the road, so a all season that has a high traction will use more gas, it also follows the line of tread wear, the more a tire can handle tread wear means the harder it is and doesn't wear like a soft tire.

So depending on where you live and what you have for conditions, you could go with a tire that will give you better gas mileage.

Next you want to use a very good fuel injector cleaner like redline or lucas, and you want use it around every 6000.
The injectors function to mist fuel is a important for combustion.

About that time I would clean the air filter.

You can also see what oil is recommended, go with a thinner grade in a synthetic blend for older car. If you want to get real picky.
But synthetic oil needs to be changed less and is the best oil there is for wear.

New spark plugs, Bosch Platinum plus if they have one for your engine.

Last, you can get a front end alignment, if your on a flat road and the car doesn't stay totally straight, that is added drag from tires.

Oil light stay on jaguar 2003 s type

That would indicate either a faulty oil pressure sensor or that the oil pressure is low. This would be caused by a faulty oil pump, partially blocked oil lines or lack of oil. Check and re-check oil levels whilst the vehicle is on a flat piece of road. Check you have the right oil dipstick for the car (it may have been replaced with a longer oil dipstick which would give you a false reading) or even that the engine may have been changed at some time! make sure you have used oil of the right viscosity (check the owners manual). If that doesn't fix it then give the engine a good flush out with flushing oil to clean out the oil feed system. refill with fresh oil. If that doesn't sort it, change the oil pressure sensor. (on the engine block). Get the engine diagnostics readout done to see if there are any error codes stored. If you still have problems then it may be the oil pump which will cost a lot of money to change!

Hello, My tire pressure light is on i took the car for oil change and I ask the person to check the tire to see if the light go away, they did but, the car continue having the light on. What to do next?.

I don't know if I would trust the oil change guy to check my tires, so you may want to stop at an auto parts store and purchase an inexpensive digital tire gauge. That said, the light will normally go off within an hour or two of having the tire pressure corrected. Make sure that you've checked all four tires. If the light still stays on you may have a broken/defective monitor in one of the tires. Any GM dealer can fix the problem -- and your 2009 may still be under the GM bumper-to-bumper warranty.

Change Oil light stays on after oil change.

Turn the key to the on position(do not start the engine) Pump the gas pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. The change oil light should start flashing. Turn the key to the off position. The next time you start the vehicle, the light should go on briefly then go out.

Oil light stays on when I start engine but goes off after a while

When you give it gas or idle for awhile the pressure will build up to normal and turn off the light.

If you are consuming oil and coolant you should check your head gasket also.

Check engine light steady on. Replaced fuel filler cap. Problem still there. Disconnect battery. Light goes out but back in an hour or so.

Have had this problem more than once.

1. When you fill up with gas make sure you click the gas cap at least three times according to the manual.

2. When you have your oil changed make sure they push the reset button. Just tell them and they will know what you mean. If they dont, it can cause the check engine light to stay on.

3. Check your oil that can cause it, if the oil is low.

See if any of these work, they have for me in the past.

Good Luck!
