Question about 2005 Chevrolet Aveo

1 Answer

Oil light comes on, but there is enough oil in the car.

While driving this evening the oil light came on. I parked in a department store parking lot to let the engine cool and let the oil settle. after an hour the engine was still warm. I checked the oil and the dip stick said there was enough oil in the car. Then I drove home. The distance is short; 1.8 miles. The oil light came on before I got home. Why is it doing this? I had the oil changed recently and still have 2000 miles before my next oil change.

Either the oil pressure switch is bad (or its wiring are somehow shorting), or the oil pressure is low. For the later, it could be having an oil pump going bad or a clogged screen at its intake. I wouldn't drive the car until the problem is solved.

SOURCE: Change oil soon on message center

You have to reset the message. The instructions are in the owner's manual (I have to do this myself every time I get an oil change.) You put the car into accessory and then scroll through the menu options. It's easy.

SOURCE: 2006 chevy uplander/ will crank but can not take out of park

The shift interlock is probably the problem. With the engine off turn switch to run. Be real quiet and listen closely as you take your foot and put it on the break pedal and start pressing down. You should hear a click in the column, if not you can rapidly take your foot and raise it off the pedal and back on with pressure. This may cause it to jar loose if stuck. That is about the only thing that will keep it from shifting from park.

SOURCE: Chevy Impala can't shift out of park

sometimes this happens if the brake light switch is broken - the car thinks that you do not have your foot on the brake, so will not shift out of park . strange however about the ABS light being on. i would get a garage to get the fault codes read

Warning - your engine is not producing enough oil pressure and is at great risk of internal damage ($$$$$). Is the car high mileage? Is the oil level where it is supposed to be? How long since the last oil change?

Parking brake light comes on while driving battery

your parking brake has a switch. when you push your pedal it activates the switch .if your pedal is slack it would let the switch turn on without you even touching the pedal.
battery light going on and off while your driving would usually indicate that your alternator is not charging properly. or loose battery cable.

2001 grand prix gt freaking out!

Hello and yes this is a major noise. I would check your oil now right before you ever start the oil again. This noise may have been your engine locking up from really low oil levels and excessive heat from a lot of driving. If this is fine contact me again and we will address more problems if their is more. Thank You.
