SOURCE: Just had oil changed, dipstick reads full, but oil light flickers

the light is probably sending an OIL Pressure drop warning ---there is a rarity however
an oil filter may be improperly installed or the OIL Pressure connection on the oil pressure
sending unit --usually next to the filter --is loose or corroded or the oil pressure sending unit may
be going bad ---on a 2001 it is conceivable
otherwise you have an internal oil pressure leak --crank or cam bearings --bad o ringy thingy somewhere or the oil pump --may be experiencing problem too or the pick up screen in the oil pan
is somwhat clogged ---for a clog --try what's called SEAFOAM in the oil ---the stuff actually works
like it says on the can --about 8 bucks --drive for a week --say 500 miles worth and change the oil filter again --just the filter ---either way OIL Pressure is nothing to ignore ---you need to fix that
asap depending on the problem source!!!
I hope this helps

How can I tell if I have a blown head gasket on my 1999 Hyundai Tiburon

Do you have a decrease in power? Do you have water in oil? Do you have a increase in fuel and or oil usage. How much condensation comes from your exhaust. What type of car is it. Your local AutoZone can be very helpful in diagnosing this problem

How do I check for a blown head gasket on my 1990

Pretty much same answer as I gave for 87 Reliant see below. Shops have equipment to do cylinder leakage test. Do basic stuff below before doing last test ...cylinder leakage...which costs $$$.

Main point you are losing antifreeze/water. Check to see if you have water on the dipstick mixed in with oil. If so...probably a head gasket. If oil looks normal..... Before you do any test, tighten every hose connection. Check for loose connection into antifreeze reservoir. Sometimes there are small cracks on top which lets out pressure from cooling system. Look for leaks on water pump and radiator. Look at spot where you park the car...any liquid on floor? Not sure?..Put piece of cardboard under car to see if liquid is dripping from car. No leaks?...Start with a pressure test of the system. The pressure test is simply equipment that replace the radiator cap, a hand pump connected to it then air is pumped into cooling system. You watch the gauge to see if pressure is dropping. If pressure does not drop ..problem is most like a worn radiator pressure cap or stuck thermostat.. Do not buy the kind with button on cap to push down and release pressure. get original type and correct pressure. If overheating still, thermostat could be stuck, replace. Overheating of engine causes vapor lock, bubbles in fuel, which causes car to stall and kill. When cools off, fuel cools down and fuel will flow through fuel system again. Large amount of oil disappearing with overheating also sounds like head gasket or cracked head....Tighten up all bolts to gaskets, look for oil leaks on garage floor or driveway. If engine has developed a miss when running, pull plugs out and look for wet fouled plug. If antifreeze leaking into cylinder...plug tip will be whitish, if oil leaking into cylinder, grimey oil fouled. Do compression test on cylinder that is fouled and that will pinpoint if bad head gasket or cracked head. When doing compression test, radiator cap is removed and you listen to hear bubbles in radiator from the cylinder leaking into cooling system. 87 Reliant not worth pulling engine apart if head gasket or cracked head. Best oil treatment to reduce oil consumption is "Engine Restore" Used on my 58 Impala 348 tri power for 28 years. If I did not add it after oil changes it used oil and smoked....I swear by it for ANY engine after 100,000 miles.

1999 nissan pathfinder acceleration is slower after I had my water pump replaced

Hi David, The water pump replacement should have had nothing to do with performance, unless the vehicle overheated before it was replaced? Have diagnostic scan carried out on the vehicle to find out if any sensors have become defective. If the vehicle did overheat it may be that the cylinder head has distorted and is leaking. Check the engine oil and if it has a milky colour it is mixing oil and water. If not it may be leaking between cylinders and loosing power that way. carry out a compression test and if two pistons adjacent to each other have the same low reading, that is where the leakage is. If the leakage is into the oil galleries, sump pressure will force oil from the any weak joints, the dipstick or filler cap. Good luck Regards John

1999 mercury grand marquis occasionally overheats, leaks around radiator cap, makes gurgling noise on passenger side. Have replaced heater core, water pump, thermostat, hoses,& radiator cap.

Check the antifreeze for oil, pull your dipstick out, see if antifreeze is in oil or smells sweet or over full, sounds like you may of a bad head gasket. You can also check this by having a compression test done on the cylinders.

Why does the water boil in my car 2001 lincon we've changed the thermostat and put a new radiator cap on and put antifreese in it

Unfortunately, you could have a blown head gasket.
Check the coolant for oily residue.
Also, check the oil dipstick to see if the oil foams - which is an indication of water seeping from the water jacket into the cylinders.

Also, do a vacuum pressure test. You might have a carbon buildup, which is causing your car to overheat.

Is your oil changed regularly? Dirty oil causes overheating. Also, make sure the oil is up to the proper level.
