SOURCE: oil light stays on 3.0 no lubrication to upper heads

Try pulling the electrical connector for the oil pressure sensor first. Examine the connections on both the connector and the sensor terminals and clean up both any dirt, grease, or corrossion. Reattach the connector and check the oil light again. If it is still lighting up, replace the sensor/sending unit.

If your engine is the OHV Vulcan engine, the oil pressure sensor/sending unit is at the rear of the block, just ahead of the transaxle. If you have the OHC engine, the sensor/sending unit is on front side of the block above the oil filter.

Why do you note "no lubrication in upper heads"? How would you know that? Next step if sensor replacement does not help, is running the OBDII Diagnostics and checking the trouble codes, if any.

Why does my 2007 ford edge se squeak when going over bumps or imperfections in the road or pushing down in rear bumper?

In the old days, 50 years ago, cars had their oil change every 3,000 miles, and they received a "lubrication" at that time. ( Some "lube" jobs were a "lick and a promise".)
Conscientious mechanics would spray lubricant (like "Ruglyde") on all the rubber joints, to help quiet them.
Today, no one does that.
I suggest you find a garage that has a drive-on hoist, and drive it on and raise it up in the air.
Then pull or push the areas of the car, and you may find the location of your squeaks.
Hopefully, you have no worn out parts.
God bless your efforts.

My sliding door on the driver sideof my 2002 ford windstar will not open its like its jammed what should i look for

In all honesty & after reading the previous posts, have you tried to lubricate the hinge(s)/latch/etc. at all? All in all, it really doesn't matter what you use to lubricate it with. I've found keeping parts, regardless of what it is, lubricated tends to keep whatever was lubed working like new. Maintaining a vehicle isn't just oil changes & such, it's using numerous products to keep the doors/hinges/mpg's/etc. going strong and lasting as long as it can.

Good day: I don't accept that cold starting an engine at 2000 RPM is OK. Those immediate revs on a cold engine are wearing out parts that need oil lube and warm-engine clearances. Is there a simple way of...

I have heard that Fords theory behind that is to supply maximum oil pressure to moving parts sooner. All the Ford products do this and the motors last well into the hundreds of thousand of miles. I wouldn't be to worried about it since there is no issue with it to my knowledge and there is no way to limit the cold start RPM's.

Cold start warm ups are a thing of the past. Better lubricants, engines, fuel injection and other computer controls have made start ups easier on the engine. 30 seconds is barely enough time to warm up anything and after a few seconds oil has already reached all of its intended lubricating points. That first few seconds is the hardest on the engine. Regardless of how any RPM's it is turning.

Are there front-end grease joints that need lube periodically or are they sealed and don't require fresh grease?

There are places to lubricate the joints and such in the front end. The ball joints certainly have lube points if nothing else does. Anything that could be metal to metal contact needs periodic lubrication. Check your owners manual for Lubrication types. Most are using a molediumdysulfide based lubricant in the newer vehicles. It is easily available at Walmart and most auto parts stores. Just don't use a graphite based Lube unless it is specifically called for. If your owners manual is short on information on this you should pick up a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. It will specify lube points and intervals and what type of lubrication to use.

2000 Ranger front end squeaks

There's a bunch of rubber to metal connections under your truck. Suspension parts, body mounts, sway bars, etc. See if you can find rubber lubricant in a spray. In the good old days, mechanics would do that for you when you got a lube job. Speaking of lube jobs, your truck does have ball joints. If it doesn't have lube fittings, see if you can get some put in. After nine years, your ball joints could be worn out, too. If you get new ones, try to get ones with lube fitttings.

Which oil is recommended for a 04 Dodge 1500 4x4

Brand names aside, both lubricants bear the same designations. 5w being how the temperature when cold affects the pour point of the lube, second # being how the lube protects components (film strength) when at operating temp. If you follow recommended oil change intervals, either will perform fairly well, and better than conventional oil. I have done extensive research on lubricants and their properties as related to professional drag race engines which see far higher pressures, temps and general "abuse" when compared to the grocery getter. The major difference between lubricants from varying manufacturers is the additive and stabilizing chemical packages they add to the actual lubricant and the quality of the "base" oil which is essentially "cloned" to produce the synthetic. This package determines the lifespan of the product, based upon burn off rate, chemical changes from shear etc. Since many auto manufacturers have increased oil change intervals, if followed, any synthetic on the market today is pretty much OK to use. Do your own research if you want to exceed manufacturers requirements. One company, Amsoil, offers some really good lubricants that exceed every requirement in every application. There are other companies that also offer some good options. The final decision is up to you, but in average driving situations, as a general rule, just about any lube that meets manufacturers posted specifications should be OK>

2000 Silverado L/T Z71 4X4 Lubrication Diagram

Lube points should be: All moving joints in suspension. Ball joints, idler arm, tie rod ends etc. On 4X4's, all universal joints on drive axles (excluding C/V joints... just inspect boots) All slip-joints and "u" joints on driveshafts. Many of these items may not have zirk fittings on them from the factory. If the component has a plug installed, it should be removed & replaced with a fitting. If there is no place for a fitting, when the item wears out, the replacement will have a fitting.

Just a piece of advice: could be the oil which lubricates the gears. Try changing your engine oil, maybe it has gotten a little too old and lost its lubricating properties.
