SOURCE: Check gauges and Check Engine Lights

The sending unit for the oil guage will cause the oil guage to fluctuate this is caused from some sludge build up that is more than likely stuck in the sending unit tube. Use Gunk motor flush on your next oil change this should help the oil guage problem.( make sure you read the direction on the back of the bottle)
As for the check engine light you can take it to Auto Zone and have them scan the computer. Sometimes the EGR valve will build up with carbon causing the valve to stick slightly open which will make the idle on the car fluctuate up and down. Its also possible you need O2 sensors.

SOURCE: Check gages light on and oil gage goes from low to 60 %

First thing I would do is replace the oil pressure sending unit for the gauge.

SOURCE: 96 grand marquis won't start

The switch at the throttle is called a TPS, throttle position sensor. It is fairly easy to change, has 2 screws and 1 electric connector. When you put your foot on the gas pedal a cable running to the Airhorn will move a part which the TPS is connected to.

The TPS is a variable resistor and it is possible to be bad on one end and good further up. Now if replacing the TPS does not solve your problem, something else is slightly off that can be compensated with the footpedal. You may have low fuelpump pressure or a low Vacuum pressure level contributing to the starting problem.

Both Autozone and Oreillys can scan your car and they do it free. You may find another component is bad. The scans will help, but do not cover every system. The TPS is not an expensive part and it is where I would start.

I hope this is helpful to you. Thanks for using Fixya.

Have you checked your oil level?
It sounds like you are really low on oil and when you accelerate, the oil you have remaining is not enough to keep the oil pickup tube covered. The gargling may be the pickup tube sucking air into the oiling system.

Check your oil level right away.
This could be very harmful to your engine and cause you to need a complete overhaul or new engine.

Everytime we stop at light the oil light comes on then turns off as soon as gas pedal is pressed


The oil lights come on because there isn't enough oil pressure in the engine... When you come to a red light, the engine is at idle in a lower rpm and there isn't enought oil in your engine to cycle, thus creating low pressure, and the indicator comes on, however when you rev your engine or press the gas pedal, the remaining oil that you have in your engine is being cylce because of higher rpm, thus bypassing the oil sensor. Solution to this, is you need to add oil to the apropriate oil level AS SOON AS POSSIBLE or get a oil change before driving this car any longer as major mechanical issue may occur if you do not get this taken care of. You can buy a quart of oil at walmart or your local gas station and add it and get you by until you get it to the gas station. You may want to constantly keep a eye on the oil level as maybe your engine is burning oil, in order to avoid engine break down.

The procedure for resetting the oil change light is in your owners manual. If you don't have the manual try this. Turn key on (do not start engine) and push the gas pedal to the floorboard 3 times within 5 seconds. Turn key off and restart the truck. Light should be reset now.

Oil light stays on


You need to put the key on and push the gas pedal to the floor three times within five second to reset the oil life light.Some g.m.'s have a reset buttom in the fuse panel that needs to be pushed first and some don't.Check the owners manual under change oil for your specific year car.

Change oil soon light. how to get it to shut off


Answer The "change oil" light on a 2001 Grand Prix is reset by pressing the gas pedal three times while the vehicle is in "accessory" mode:

1. Turn the car off.
2. Place the ignition key in the "on" position, without starting the car. That is, turn the key forward to the place right before it fires the engine.
3. Place your foot on the gas pedal and press it all the way down three times, waiting approximately one second between presses.

If done correctly, the "change oil" light will flash repeatedly, and will then reset.

Please note that it is rare to do this successfully on the first try; if it does not work, turn the car off and try the procedure again, varying the wait slightly between pedal presses at each attempt

RX300 Engine Stalls when I take foot off the gas pedal.


The Idle Air Control (IAC) valve is clogged. This part feeds air to the engine at start-up and idle when the throttle bodies are closed. I removed the throttle body assembly from my 2001 RX300 and separated it from the IAC. After a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner the IAC was good as new. I later decided to replace it during routine maintenance. You can pick up a brand new IAC on eBay (genuine Lexus/Toyota part). The dealer will want upwards of $400.00 for a 45 minute job (all you need are basis hand tools).
