You replied to a comment I posted here today. Thank you for the reply. My comment now is: I'm planning to go to FL, from Atlanta (about 400 miles) and of course planning to change oil/filter before hitting the road. Would that be too risky?

Re: Oil light coming on at certain times
Have it done Oil & filter) a.s.a.p. to make sure light goes out.If it doesn't , change the sender or at least have a mechanic hook-up an external oil pressure gauge to confirm oil pressure is in safe range. Turn stereo off once in a while & listen for any new, louder tapping or different noises from engine. if that happens, shut it off right away. My guess is your o.k. but let's err on the side of caution. Check oil level & top up as needed.

You need to answer in the original post as a COMMENT to Mr Colton's reply to you. If you do it that way, Thomas Colton Jr will get a notification that he has a reply to answer. Your way of making a reply does not work as Fixya gets 7 million enquiries a year, so it is impossible for one person to see even a fraction of them.
You need to post this in the original post as a COMMENT. Fixya gets 7 million question a year, so the people you are writing to won't see it. When you reply as a comment, everyone involved get a notification. Here is the thread URL
Make, year, and model with engine info might assist.
Back to basics, the first thing I'd do would be to dig out the timing light and check to spec's.
If you reply as a comment to this post with more info I'll try to help.
Put what you said on your second post in comment tab on this post, so all info stays in one place. If someone comes on later they will not be able to see separate postings, but can see updates to original post under comments.
- I have to ask the most basic question first........are you installing it so that the ridges in the belt are fitting into the grooves in the pulleys?
- Next, When the belt is installed, is the tensioner holding it snug?
- Possible problem could be that the belt is too long (not the right one)
- Possible problem could be that the tensioner is not functioning.
Time for some checking.
