The dipstick tube can leak oil, and massive oil loss will damage the engine, causing it to overheat in the last few minues of its life.
Mostly likely that your heating up problem is low coolant/leaking coolant, a thermostat, clogged radiator, collapsed hose, bad cooling fan clutch, or head gasket.

I would check the electric connections to make sure the all are solid, tight connections, both positive and negative.
A voltage meter can be used to detect voltage drops on your car. A loose corroded connection, offers electrical resistance where it should not and consumers power, causing a voltage drop. Such power loss is dissipated as heat and heat or temperature change causes expansion and contraction and change in circuit resistance and loosened connections, even damage to the connection.
Check and look for a voltage drop while turning the key.
You can, but how are you going to get the oil level correct. It is pretty critical to get the oil between the high and low level lines. Too much oil and too little oil are both bad news for the life of the engine. Too little oil can cause an engine seizure. The best thing to do is drop the sump off the engine and push the dipstick out of the hole, then replace it or get it mig welded.
codes p000A refers to camshaft position sensor(CMP) actuator, intake /left/front bank 1---slow response===causes ---wiring---CMP actuator---ECM
code P000B refers to CMP actuator, exhaust/right/rear bank 1--slow response -====causes ---wiring---CMP actuator---ECM
did it occur to you that if there is insufficient oil in the motor that items that require oil pressure may throw codes when that oil pressure is fluctuating from air being pumped
first fill the sump to the high mark on the dip stick and keep it there , then it the codes reappear have an accredited service centre change the actuators
ITS ON THE PASSENGER SIDE BEHIND THE A/C COMPESSOR AND BELOW THE VALVE COVER.. LOOKING AT THE MOTOR WITH HOOD UP IT WILL BE ON THE LEFT SIDE IT SHOULD STAND UP PRETTY TALL. IF YOU ARE WANTING TO REMOVE THE WHOLE DIP STICK TUBE. ITS ATTACHED TO THE VALVE COVER BY 1 BOLT.. TO REMOVE ENTIRE DIP STICK TUBE WHICH GOES DOWN INTO THE OIL PAN.. IT SHOULD HAVE A YELLOW RING FOR DIPSTICK.
For there to be no oil on the transmission dip stick there must be a big leak in the box somewhere. Pouring in oil at one end will only be a waste of money until the leak is fixed. You will probably be looking at 1 1/2 gallons to fill the transmission. Check the coolant for oil in the water or get underneath and look for a large oil slick under the car.
You have an oil stick that goes into the oil pan. In order to properly check the oil level, you must let your car heat up for 7-10 minutes, until temperature is almost normal. Make sure the car is level. After that checks out, take the dip stick out of the engine. On the end of the dip stick, you will see a warm mark and a cold mark. There is two dents or marks on the edge of the dip stick. The oil level needs to be between those marks. If it is below, add oil. Be careful to not add to much. They might be just two marks on it only. Same rule. It needs to be in the middle. If you have a question, feel free to contact me. I am here to help you. Thank you for choosing FixYa.
Hello, That message means there isn't sufficent oil lubricating the moving parts of the engine. This could be caused by little or no oil in the oil pan. Using the dip stick(yellow handle under the hood front passenger side) pull the dip stick out wipe off with rag, re-insert it and check on lower end and see where level is. It could also be a failed oil pressure sensor. It could also be caused by oil pump failure. If you have run the engine a lot it may have severe internal damage. Thank you.
