Hi everybody i have a Lexus Gs300 2006 after an oil change i an it for 5000mile and i found that engine oil is lost about 1.5liter what is the problem? thank


hi, do you see oil on ground when you park? - could be oil drain plug is not put on properly- also, do you see blue smoke coming from tail pipes?- could be bad piston rings---- look for ooil in engine bay -look down and see if leaking- that's a lot of oil to lose- keep an eye on oil level every time you start the car to avoid severe engine damage!!!- put oil as you need until fixed- happy trails!!

While driving my chev 454 truck the oil pressure went to 0 psi


A leaking filter and oil pressure switch would cause the lack of oil pressure. Does the oil light work and does it go out now you have changed these parts. It only needs approx 8 psi to put the light out, the engine should run at approx 40 psi at 2000 rpm.

Chrysler new yorker only low oil pressure


if you are full of oil, this could be as easy as an oil pressure sending unit, which you may see near the oil filter.

It could be an oil pump going bad, and you will be looking at a mechanic shop at that point.

I would check the connection of the oil pressure sending unit to make sure it's plugged in properly.

People have told me the pressure quit working after an oil change, and I found that in most cases, whoever changed the oil damaged that sensor.

1986 Camaro 2.8eng has a bad oil leak coming looks like from above the oilfilter,


Have you recently had an oil and filter change? Its possible the old "o"ring seal for the old filter got
left stuck in place. I've seen this before and when the new filter is installed the new seal does'nt make a good seal.
If there was'nt a recent oil change, check the valve cover gaskets and the oil pressure sending
unit. I had one crack and start leaking once, it just about drove me crazy before I found it.
Hope this helps.

Turned on 2009 altima was flashing oil pressure then oil fillter flashing warning had oil and filter changed 3 days ago ck oil it was fine turned off car what may be the problrm


sometimes the service technician fails to remove the old oil filter gasket. This causes a leak at the oil filter. This would cause a leak which would lead to low oil pressure and loss of oil. You would have to remove the oil filter and check for an extra gasket. Or perhaps the oil filter was never tightened. If you find one then just remove it and re-install oil filter. You will, however, leak a couple cups of oil so have a drip pan ready. You may have damaged your engine if you ran with no/low oil pressure for any length of time.

Oil light coming on, but has plenty of oil


Oil pressure sensors seem to be the least reliable of them all; I'd replace it first and if it is still showing low pressure, have a shop check with a real pressure gauge. It shouldn't cost much and won't take long to do.
If it then shows low pressure, the oil pump may be worn or the pickup impeded with gunk (bad maintenance.)

The oil pressure sending unit screws into the engine block so you will need to look between the oil pan and the head.I suggest that you try tightening your oil filter first.

In some cases where the oil is not changed properly, the oil pump screen maybe plugging or your oil filter is defective. Fram is a good filter. If there is no problem found, replace the pressure sensor.
