    Thanks! Yes there is oil in the car. It started about 1 day after I put the Fram on it. It is nice to know that I am not the only one that has had that problem. Thanks

First thing is make sure you have oil in the car. The oil light works off of a switch mounted on the side of the oil pan. It could be a bad connection at the connector on the switch. I have owned 6 Fox body mustangs and the only completely trouble free oil filter is the FL1A. i have had 1 out of 5 Fram oil filters set off the engine light. One of my cars is a 500 hp notchback '92 model and I use the FL1A in that car also.

    DONT USE FRAM ON THIS CAR, he's right also check the fuses there is a fuse that goes out and causes these lights to show up when using breaks

I drive a 1999 Saab 9-3 the oil light comes on when I turn a corner.. just had the oil changed.. could it be the oil pump going out? It only started giving me problems after I had the oil changed.


Hello S.Ann, Since your problem started after the oil change you need to check the engine oil level . It is possible they didn't' add enough oil to your engine or your engine could have an oil leak.

Oil light keeps comeing on ???


Remove the electric sender and install mechanical oil gauge to check that you have proper oil pressure. Bet ya the main bearings are not fitted correctly or the engine wasn't cleaned during overhaul and now bearings are trashed.

Oil pressure too hight


If its a wiring or sensor issue you'll have a code up or the check engine light will be on. I'd start by getting an oil change and a good oil filter (not a Fram). Thinner oil should help lower the pressure. You should be alright if your pressure is under 60.

LOW OIL PRUSHER LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON


Check the oil level for the engine. It could also be a bad oil pump. Also make sure you are using the proper thickness oil for the engine and that it doesn't need changed. One other thing it could be is the oil filter. If it is a FRAM, they are prone to clogging. I use either AC Delco or purilator filters.

The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

The type of oil in the engine will not affect the check engine light. The engine light only comes on when something in the engine management system is out of specifications. Any sensor reading out of specification, e.g. oxygen sensor, mass air flow sensor, throttle position sensor etc., will trip the engine light. The only way I can think that the oil changers could be responsible is if they moved or damaged some wiring or a sensor etc. while doing the oil change.

I had oil change in my saturn 2001 sl after the oil and security and airbag lights started to turn on after 2 days car started making a knocking sound while driving. and it died on me when im at a stop...


best advice here is to ask a local mechanic to have a look as engine shouldnt have started knocking with teh new oil in unless someone has put tranny fluid into teh engine or something stupid ,the lights for the airbag shouldnt be connected but the oil light ?? Do not drive car untill a mechanic has come around and checked it out for you though as this oil light coming on and knocking noise is serious

My engine has a knocking sound


i'm sorry! does the engine dipstick for the oil,is it full? has it been run low on oil lately? is the knocking sound like a real hard knocking,thumping with like deep base sound?if so,do not start it again. you may have a bad crankshaft bearing,or a bad crank,broken crank. if it's a tapping sound,that's different. it could be low oil pressure, just like the lower knocking,it may be bad oil pump.my advice is this, lower knock from oil pan where you drain the oil,do not start! upper,on top of the engine,just change oil 1st add a fram oil filter,if in cold weather recommend 5w30weight oil,in summer,30weight castrol with fram oil filter.is your oil light on? if not,then it'not low on oil,but CHECK your oil on dipstick,just to be sure thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 2011 Chev. Equinox. engine, 3.0L DOHC, V6 SIDI engine. I change my own oil. What Brand and type of oil should I use and what brand and number oil filter should I buy.


If you change your own oil you may void your warranty. The dealer uses Chevron oil and an AC Delco oil filter. Fram is a good oil filter too and the delco you would have to get from the dealer. The fram oil filter part number is PH10060 and oil wise anything is good except Pennzoil. If you choose to run synthetic oil though dont go back to conventional oil.

When I start the engine first thing in the morning it makes a clattering sound,until it runs for a minute


the clattering is most likely valves rattling until the oil gets up to top of engine,recommend change the oil and filter,use a good filter like fram oil filter,i've always used castrol 30 weight oil in winter,then summer 40 weight, also recommend you add lucas oil treatment,1 bottle,add with your oil change for top end lubrication,the oil stays and clings onto valves and adds a whole lot more of top end lubrication to your engine than just regular oil.it's just a treatment,i have a 1994 ford explorer with 450.000 miles on it.just trying to see how far i can go with original motor.but i always use castrol oil,fram oil filter and always add lucas oil treatment every time i change my oil.thank you for choosing fixya.com good luck!
