Sounds like the oil filter is installed wrong or the wrong part.

SOURCE: just changed oil in kia

Hi there,

DANGER....this is telling you there is NOT enough oil pressure. The clatter you hear means inadequate oil is reaching the cams or lifters.

Can you confirm you have used the correct grade & viscosity of oil? Is oil leaking?

Please re-check the oil level again - allow vehicle to sit for 5mins, then check oil level on the ENGINE dipstick. If dipstick level is up to the full mark, then assume you have enough oil and let the engine idle for 5mins.

If the clatter remains, then suspect a problem with the oil pump, or oil filter causing a blockage.


Cheers,

Why does oil light come on after i changed my oil in my kia Sorrento?


There is a chance that your oil pressure sensor has gone bad or is unplugged. My suggestion would be to install a mechanical gauge to verify oil pressure.

How to check if oil pump is bad on 03 kia sorento


Hi Rodney. Can you tell me what makes you think the oil pump might be faulty. Is your motor noisy at idle ? How often is the car serviced ? Do you know what grade of oil has been used ? Do you have a "check engine" light on the dash ?
If you can fill me in with a few more details I'll be more than happy to help you :)

Engine oil lamp some times blinks comes on and later when restart it does not come I have Kia Sorento 2009


The oil light will come on when ever pressure is low it ct can be as little as the oil pressure sensor is going out or you may have a blockage somewhere in the oil system try doing an oil change with mobile1 oil this may help if there is a small blockage but defiantly get the sensor checked first

93 Dodge Spirit hit curb Hit curb on back driver side tire. Nothing wrong with tire but right after I hit the curb, my car started to shake and slow down. It turned off completely when at a stop. Oil...


the smoke came from the spilled oil leaking onto a hot surface ( manifold) No problem there. The oil light coming on was probably from the oil surging away from the oil pickup in the sump momentarily allowed the oil pump to suck air hence a drop in oil pressure. To have all that happen, the hit on the curd was substantial. so I thinking bent axle flange and broken engine mounts could explain vibrations and engine shaking

I got a 1995 camaro and just got the oil change and smoke is coming from under the hood.


Sounds to me like oil got spilled onto the engine and exhaust manifold. I had to get an oil filler extension to keep that from happening when I changed the oil in my '96. Otherwise; No matter how careful I was, some oil always got spilled and then it would be a few days of driving and some smoking before it all dried up.

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet?

Have you looked things over carefully under the bonnet for evidence of a BP event.. Oops! I mean evidence of an oil spell?
