SOURCE: Fans for cooling kick in too late.Besides,a light

On these newer models,you need to bleed the air out of the cooling system.The best way is to fill radiator full,put cap on.Fill the reservoir up about 3/4 full over the full mark,with engine with ac off.Run engine until the temp is almost to hot,but not bubbling.Then turn engine off,go in the house for about 35 to45 minutes and wait for the reservoir to loose some coolant.It will puul what it needs into the engine.Do this over and over until the engine cools properly.The fans will come on,and they will go off.If they don`t go off by there selves,then the engine is not cooling down.If I can help,let me know.>>

SOURCE: What are the steps to changing the oil in this

1. As for parts, you will need an engine oil filter that is made for your vehicle, new oil and something to catch the oil in. Depending on the size of your engine and the type of engine it is, you will want to make sure that you have the correct engine oil that is recommended for your vehicle. Most engine oil is either synthetic or not, and most cars do not need to have synthetic oils. Check your owner's manual though to make sure of which you need. There are many options out there for catching the oil, but many stores sell dedicated oil pans that will hold many quarts of used oil. You may also want to invest in a tool that will wrap around your oil filter to allow easier extraction and installation.
2. With your engine heated up - to allow for better flow - jack the vehicle up.
3. Position the oil pan underneath the drain plug. This is a small plug that sticks out from the bottom of the vehicle's oil pan. You will need a ratchet to remove this. Once removed, watch out for the oil that comes out of the bottom.
4. For a faster release of oil, you can also open the oil cap on the top of the engine.
5. After the oil pan has been drained, you can replace the drain plug and go to work removing the old filter. Make sure the oil catch pan is now under where the filter is, as there will be more oil draining from it. Twist the filter to remove and let this oil drain as well.
6. Now start to prep the new filter. This simply means pouring a little bit of new oil into it and spreading some around the top of the filter with your finger so that a better seal is created. Get back under the car, if required, and then put the new filter on. Hand-tighten and then add a little more pressure with an oil filter tool.
7. After that has been done, you can lower the car and measure out the amount of oil that you need. Pour this into the oil reservoir on the top of the engine. Finally, replace the dipstick and check the level of the oil. If all looks good, you are all done. Clean up with some soap or grease cleaner for your hands and put the used oil in a safe place.

2002 Chevrolet Malibu oil light on & valves clattering

Check the oil level on the dip stick and make it correct. This engine should have a low oil shut down feature. Possible oil pump failure. With oil at correct level, restart engine. If the oil light does not go out with engine running, shut down immediately. Severe Internal rotating component bearing damage has already occurred. look for loose oil filter or hole in oil pan.

Check coolant level or possibly a bad coolant level sensor. If either of these are at fault, it can cause the engine to shut down or run with reduced power to keep from damaging the engine. Had this problem with a 2005 Freightliner w/ Detroit engine. (bad coolant level sensor)

2004 lincoln avaitor oil light comes on the engine shuts down

Does the oil light come on BEFORE the engine shuts down? I have to ask because it is NORMAL for the oil light to be on when the engine is not running. I had a customer that said the same thing just last week. After we wasted a bunch of time (which the customer ended-up paying for) checking the oil level, the oil pressure, and verifying correct oil pressure gauge, light, and sending unit operation, it turned out that the crankshaft position sensor was bad and causing the engine to shut down and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the oil light - it was functioning as designed.

If the oil light is coming on before the engine shuts down, the first thing you need to do is check your oil level. If the oil level is OK, you need to check the oil pressure with a gauge to determine if there is an actual engine oil pressure problem or if the oil pressure sending unit, gauge or light is malfunctioning. Also, it is highly advisable to not drive the vehicle AT ALL if the oil pressure light is coming on while driving until the cause of the light coming on has been determined and repairs have been made. Otherwise, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE may result.
