    You need to get the Oil Pump Looked at. Sounds like it is Just about Ready to Kickit.

1996 jeep wont stay started and oil pressure gauge goes up and down


hot or cold engine , or both.?
the oil pressure will be in direct ratio to engine rpm. slow low, fast high
due to the oil pump connection to engine crankshaft.

stalls.: can be caused by 50 things, or just 4 in physics.
the EGR valve (if you have one, no engine stated)
can stick open and stall any engine, and in fact LOVES to. clean it.
1: list 12vdc to EFI. (spark and fuel brain) dash lights dim?
2: lost compression hot, ? compression tests.
3: lost spark, do spark tests. and timing, checks.
4: bad fueling, too much if floods, and misfires and stalls.
too little fuel, it starves and dies.

the 1 free test, is can you save the stall with a fast right foot.

we do the tests. avoiding those 50 guesses....
each tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap .

Stalls and surges


sounds like a vacume leak. any engine light? the egr wont effect idle or starting. maybe the throttle position sensor or maf sensor. also check airfilter. there should be i engine light if any of these things are wrong including the egr valve.

1999 chrysler sebring low oil pressure at idle


It may be the oil pump. If the gauge is going up when the rpms increase it's probably not the gauge or pressure switch. If the computer senses the oil pressure is low it will shut the vehicle off to try to save it's self from catastrophic failure. Also it may start cranking longer before starting. Thats it building oil pressure before the computer will let it start. Make sure oil is full, clean & thick.

I have a 1999 chevy silverado 5,3 i had the oil changed three weeks ago. now my light comes on tellin me to change my engine oil. what could cause this?


  • its a sensor that lets you know to change oil. 1st turn key on start possession don't start, 2nd pump gas pedal three times fast not real fast then after the third time turn key back to off then start the vehicle this should reset the light!!

''check engine oil level light ''wont go off


Ok, start with the obvious, check the oil, and while the truck is running listen under the hood for ticking or clattering noises. If the oil is full, and the engine is running nice and quiet and smooth, it's most likely your oil pressure sending unit, usualy located somewhere near the oil filter housing. It will have 1 wire coming from it, check to make sure it's got a tight connection. If that still doesn't work, try replacing the oil pressure sensor. You will need a drain pan when you do it, because you will loose a little oil when you remove the sensor.
Good Luck!
