SOURCE: 2002 Chevrolet Impala overheating while idling

the thermostates on the 3400 engines are late because the fans kick in at the last moment. if you run your ac on you will notice that the gauge stays in front of the half mark or right on the half mark. that is because when you turn on your ac your fans will kick in earlier and stay on the whole time the ac is on. if you run your car with the heat on or nothing on that leaves the late thermostate to kick in verus you turning on your ac and it by passes the thermostates and runs the fans once the engine gets at at lest 120 deg. i use to have a 2002 and i had the same problem. this will keep your engine cooler. also if you don't want your air on just turn on your windshield defrosters (not the back windshield) and that helps keep your engine cool because your defrosters use your air compressor which is really your ac. so it still kicks the fans on earlier.

SOURCE: Oil pressure sensor light comes on and oil level is fine

This is probably an oil pressure sensor problem.  Randomly going from 0 to over 130 is means the sensor is putting out out of range signals.  Mine would even read --- at times.  I told the mechanic to not spend any time troubleshooting just change the sensor.  $121 including parts, labor and tax.  The gage should read about 70 psi plus or minus several psi, and move up a PSI or two as you rev up the engine.  It took him about 10 minutes to change it, once he got the part.  There would have been a diagnostic charge of about $50, had I not been sure.

Your oil sensor may be faulty, or your may have a leak since you said the fluid level is okay.

I recently replaced motor mounts & now I have a problem , When I come to a stop or put a load on the engine the oil warning light comes on., Doesn't happen while driving . I Checked level it's...


Well it could be a new problem or something related to the motor mount work.
The oil pressure switch grounds the light when the oil pressure drops below 10psi. How much oil is in the crankcase is not usually the issue.
Of course if there is no oil there can be no oil pressure.
Its possible there is a short in the wiring harness going to the switch and it is shorted to ground when the engine is in the right spot.
Or something may be going on inside the oil pan.
You may be able to unplug the switch and see if it still happens.

OIL LIGHT STAY ON


Hi,
DO NOT DRIVE THE CAR w/the oil light on. Verify the oil level. If it doesn't show on the dipstick (ensure it's the OIL dipstick-usually yellow-and not the transmission - usually red). Add 1/2 quart, wait 5 minutes for it to drain, and check until oil is visible on the dipstick.

If it has oil, then your oil pump or oil sensor may be bad. You'll need a mechanic verify which.

Oil light stay on jaguar 2003 s type


That would indicate either a faulty oil pressure sensor or that the oil pressure is low. This would be caused by a faulty oil pump, partially blocked oil lines or lack of oil. Check and re-check oil levels whilst the vehicle is on a flat piece of road. Check you have the right oil dipstick for the car (it may have been replaced with a longer oil dipstick which would give you a false reading) or even that the engine may have been changed at some time! make sure you have used oil of the right viscosity (check the owners manual). If that doesn't fix it then give the engine a good flush out with flushing oil to clean out the oil feed system. refill with fresh oil. If that doesn't sort it, change the oil pressure sensor. (on the engine block). Get the engine diagnostics readout done to see if there are any error codes stored. If you still have problems then it may be the oil pump which will cost a lot of money to change!

Why my oil light doesn't come on when my oil is low?


Your oil light is probably pressure sensing and not level sensing. Of course when your oil level is low your pressure should also be low, I'd check the oil pressure sensor.

The engine oil level is fine and the oil light is on.


This can be a few different things. I'll give you a couple. First, do you have an oil pressure gauge? If you do, watch it very closely. Specifically while accelerating, braking, and making turns... so, pretty much, all the time except when cruising. If you don't have one, you'll just have to watch the light. More than likely you are losing oil pressure and it has nothing to do with oil level. If it comes on more when the car is idling, but tends to go off when it's revved up, the oil pump may be going out or may be leaking. It could be that it's pickup line is getting clogged, but don't count on it. It could also be a clogged oil filter, but again, not likely. Change your oil AND filter first and foremost, even if you've done it recently. Then watch the light while the car is idling and while revving it SLIGHTLY. BE CAREFUL!!! If you're temperature gauge starts going up or your check engine light comes on, shut it OFF. Lack of oil pressure leads to blown engines. You don't want to spend 3-5K on a new one. Get the thing checked out. One more thing. When you get your oil changed, ask the mechanic to reset your car's oil change computer. Many newer cars will show an oil light when it's time to change the oil. If it's not reset, it won't know it was changed and will stay on. I hope this is your problem. Good luck with everything.
