Have you replaced the sending unit for the oil light yet, do that now and that will likely fix the problem. The sender will be near the oil filter most likely.

That car has a dynamic oil presure system,check if the high and low oil presure senders are good, and make sure you have the correct oil and filter, that car uses 20w-50, any other would give you this problem.

SOURCE: Oil Leak

Take the car to a car wash and power wash the engine. Do this ONLY with a cold engine. And be prepared to have problems with it starting as water get's into the electrical components. Take some WD-40 with you to spray inside distributor caps, on spark wiring, etc. to get the engine running again.

Then check the engine weekly to see where the oil is coming from.

SOURCE: Low oil pressure light comes on and goes off

the noise is the chain tensioner in the cylinder head between the two camshafts. it is a job for a proffesional shop. the 1.8t passats had an oiling problem and were fixed with a larger oil filter. some times you have to remove the oilpan and replace the oil pickup tube.

SOURCE: My oil light started flashing and alarm beeping

If the idle goes down below 600 rpm it will trigger this alarm, inadequete rpm to create oil pressure,consider adressing this issue if it exists. If this is not the case and the car has more than 150,000 miles on it remove the oil pan and replace the oil pump, I will warn you however that the usual reason why oil pressure drops off is because the connecting rod bearing clearances have opened up thereby allowing to much oil to pass by them connecting rod bearings should be done at the time of oil pump replacement.

What does it mean if there is oil in my coolant reservoir


oil too low!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have some change your oil & filter immediately !!! drain radiator & coolant reservoir , refill w/ fresh 50/50 coolant , white smoke is not exactly a good thing ! it could mean coolant is mixing w/ oil , because of a possible leak from a bad gasket either from intake manifold or head gasket !!! water pump would not cause this ! I would bet on a gasket leak given the age of the car . 2000 ! 13 years old, how was it maintained, intake gaskets are cheaply made, head gaskets are made well ! so, my bet, goes to the intake manifold gasket !!!!!!good luck kristle !

Engine runs smooth and the head gasket has been replaced,I already know I need a new radiator..There is a small amount of white smoke at start up,and my oil is milky looking>


milky sump oil is coolant in the sump
could be head gasket
could be the aluminium housing behind the water pump has corroded and leaking water into the sump
that will account for you thinking that you need anew radiator

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

2006 Pacifica 3.5L I have a small coolant leak on the passenger side. The coolant will trickle down and drip from oil pan. The puddle is only 2 inches wide. I did a pressure test at 17PSI and I lost 2PSI...


It is a possibility that the leak may come from bad seals from the water pump or a bad water pump. If you also observe bubble in the coolant inside the radiator when the car is running or water coming out of the exhaust you may have a bad head gasket. The coolant comes out of the bad part of the head gasket near the outside which lets water outside the engine as well.

You're going to need to visually inspect for leaks and if no external leaks are evident I suspect your head gaskets are leaking again - check oil for coolant in oil - it will look milky

Engine using oil. No sign of leaking. Catalytic converter replaced 13 months ago, now needs replaced. Told need new engine. What is causing the catalylic converter to plug?


Was a leak down test performed on the motor?This will determine if the oil loss is due to bad rings or a head gasket.A head gasket can be repaired,rings will require an overhaul or new motor.Have checked the coolant for oil contamination?
