Check the timing belt to make sure it is still turning the cams. Check for spark out of the plug wires. Check fuel pressure. Let me know which of the three are not correct! Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

well if the engine cranks we know that it is not seized, yet you could have locked the cam shafts on the head by not having enough oil in which case you while the cam shaft got locke up this would have caused the timing belt to break and the vehicle sill not start so open the vlve cover and or the timing belt cover if you find the belt is broken you know that the Head of that engine needs work!!

you might have a starter gone bad. When you try and crank does the engine spin over or is there just like one solid loud clicking noise? or is the engine spinning over when you try and crank but it just want start up and run?

GM said the sensor by the oil filter on a 1997 achevia is a crank sensor you its a oil presser sw. and it is linked to Ign sw. how , will the eng die in a second if the wires are broken or the sensor


the oil pressure sensor tells the ECM when there is insufficient oil pressure to safely run the engine
when you start an engine there is oil covering the pump inlet and the pressure buils up
if there is insufficient oil to maintain pressure ,or the pump cannot maintain a low preset pressure , the ecm will shut the engine down to protect it
like wise if the wiring is loose /faulty the signal from the sensor is interrupted and that tells the ecm to shut the engine down
again if the sensor is faulty , the ecm will shut the engine down
how to fix :-
install a mechanical oil gauge in the system and check for oil pressure achieved
replace the sensor switch with a known good one
run the fault codes

05 ford ranger started knocking and shut off now won't crank. What is wrong?


Started knocking and shut off ? Now will not start?
That sounds bad - check fluids - engine oil and coolant - those three symptoms can indicate overheating (either by lack of coolant or engine oil).
Did either fluid get low AND does the engine oil look contaminated - milky colored and way overful.
Not Start? Does it turn the engine and just not fire up running?
Or does the engine not turn over at all?
If the engine is siezed - you can tell by the electrical power needed to crank the engine - turn on the lights and try to crank the engine - if all you hear from the starter is a click and all the lights dim - that means a lot of power is needed like:
1. the battery doesn't have enough power - jump start to verify
2. or it requires more power to turn the engine than the battery can provide - engine siezed - try turning the engine by hand with socket/wrench to verify.
I hope your engine is not siezed - if so - hope you still have warranty coverage on the powertrain.
Please let me know what you find and if this helps?

My Ford f-150 started this morning but engine shut off with the check gauge indicator light on. Oil pressure is low, oil leaked onto driveway. Engine cranks but will not start. No smoke or burning sme


Tony,
don't run it with low oil pressure - you will damage the engine. WHere did the oil leak out? Is it staying in now? Not sure what you mean by "check gauge" - maybe check engine? If you can pull the codes from the ECU that may help. WHere is the oil level on the dip stick? reply via comment to the orignial question.

Auto shut down relay


Oil Light comes on when the Pressure drops below a certain amount. If I was a betting man, I would tell you to test your CRANK SHAFT SENSOR.

Why did my oil pressure light come on while driving and then my vehicle started puttering and then the check engine oil light came but the vehicle has oil in it..


Could be your oil pressure switch that is screwed into engine block by oil filter.This is the first step in checking problem.Here's a link on removing part from engine.Here's the part.

2004 Doge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi 190K mile had oil pressure gauge drop to ZERO and check gauges light come on and engine shut down.. Check oil 1 guart low, add oil. let cool. crank up, good gauges drove home 45...


If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

You have probably spun a rod bearing. These engines do not like running with low/no oil.
