Oil pressure I have a 2000 LHS. The engine kept dying at stop lights, till finally it wouldnt start. The garage said it may be a oil pressure problem. Could it be a sensor or something else? Want to avoid a costly repair.

I had the same problem on my 2003 Intrepid and the only solution was to replace the engine. If this is a 2.7 liter, (like mine) this may be what you need to do to get it back on the road. This is expensive, mine cost nearly $6000 in parts and labor. Even if it's just an oil pressure problem, you don't have to run it run to mess things up.

There is a crank positioning sensor on the passengers side transmission bell housing if it goes bad the car won't start. I just bought a remanufactured engine for my 2001 LHS it cost $2400.00. Put it in myself and it fired right up first try after sitting for a year. 100,000 mile warrenty or 3 years. Goggle Promar engines great people will deliver engine to your car. But this would be my last resort (buying a new engine) not my first. You have lots of checks to do first.

Tried to startcar in the am hard starting finally started and drove 1/2 mile and car just stopped oil light came on. changed starter still not working. checked plugs no water however flywheel wont turn...

Did the oil light come on before the car stopped? If the oil light came on before it died, the engine was likely seized up due to low oil/pressure which destroys all the hearings in the engine resulting in the lock up you find with the flywheel won't turn

Diesel fault finding

Difficult to say here without looking myself ,suspect that you may need to bleed the fuel system thats all you need to do but did the oil light come on ,not the engine light but the oil can symbol if so you may have damaged the engine but it should still start even if the bottom end of the engine is making a banging noise.What did the garage say when it wouldnt start?

JEEP CHEROKEE 2003 oil light came on the the car died then would not start again

If the car died and then the oil light came on than that is normal. If you lost oil pressure the light would come on and the engine would continue to run for a little while until it seized up. If this where the case it would have made a lot of noise and you would have felt a gradual loss off power until the engine finally stopped. I suspect the oil light came on after it stalled. If this is the case the first thing to check would be spark or fuel pressure. Crank sensors and fuel pumps are the two most common issues that would cause the engine to stall.

My 2000 Nissan xterra started shaking while idling and the service engine light came on. I changed the oil and it feels better. It doesnt knock In neutral or park. It also rattles till you hit about 30...

Also- the rattle is most likely the valve lifters. The lifters on this engine and the model previous (I have owned both to 180k miles or more) lose pressure when the motor is off. They re-pressureize with engine oil after the motor starts and tap a little until they "pump up" to full size. Just don't drive until the rattle dies down and as long as it is under 30 seconds or so- you will be fine there.

Our 2000 Merc Villager had the engine light on and was making some sputtering noises. It died in the middle of my husband driving it. We went to have it towed the next morning and it started okay so he...

Could be cam sensor, crank sensor, PCM going bad. On these newer vehicles with all the electronics it is hard to pinpoint what it is till the check engine light does come on for it. I would suspect one of the 3 going bad though.

1994 Chrysler LHS Starting Problems

it's either a spark or fuel fault , if there is spark after it shuts down it is a fuel fault. connect a pressure gauge in the fuel line, start the engine , note fuel pressure around 35 psi , stop engine , pressure should drop a little then hold, if not check pump return valve and pressure regulator , check fuel flow , if low replace fuel filter,

Need help diagnosing problem

Sounds bad :-(
The "oil light" is an oil pressure light, which is different from what the dipstick measures. Without oil pressure to the engine's bearings they are quickly destroyed.

I fear you may have to replace the engine :-(
