2001 f150 set up for over a year when you first start it . It runs fine. After a while oil light on dash comes on truck start running bad and will die. we have changed fuel flitter and fuel pump .


The oil light coming on would indicate no oil pressure. If the engine actually has no oil pressure, it will get noisy and hydraulic lifters will no longer work. This could cause running issues. If the engine actually loses oil pressure my guess would be the oil pickup screen plugging up.

2002 lincoln continental makes loud noise when take foot off the gas. A/C not working even though worked fine last summer. Can feel heat coming off dash around steering wheel.


What you MIGHT be hearing, is a vacuum leak, through a cracked or broken hose or fitting. Without vacuum, the "dampers" in the A/C system will not route the cold air to the right places in the car interior. Is the compressor clutch engaged, and turning the A/C compressor? If, not, you may be low on refrigerant!

Engine is running fine. Oil level is good. Oil light comes on and off at random. Engine isn't knocking and runs great. Recently changed to GTX extended milage oil. Problem developed


The oil light comes on when the oil pressure sensor detects low oil pressure. The amount of oil has little to with it, although very low oil levels can cause loss of oil pressure. Since you aren't getting knocking, chances are the oil pressure sensor is defective. Replace it and monitor the situation closely. This could be a serious condition if allowed to escalated and it turns out to be an oil pressure issue.

Ive got oil in the car but the oil light keeps comeing on and off


The oil light indicates low oil PRESSURE, not oil VOLUME.
BUT, I have had an oil pressure sending unit go bad on me before, indicating low oil pressure while in fact oil pressure was fine.
If your oil fill cap (where oil is added to engine) is on a valve cover, remove cap while engine is running. If you get an oil mist or oil spray out of it, or if you can see oil spraying when looking down hole (use a flashlight), then you have oil pressure, and the oil light sending unit probably is bad and needs replacing.

Oil pressure light comes on and says that the oil pressure has dropped. but the truck is running fine


You could change the oil pressure sending unit to see if it is faulty, or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.

1984 chevrolet cavalier cs oil pressure warning light on but runs fine and oil level is ok. What could be the problem. Is there a sending unit that can be checked?


if the oil level is good and clean, and there is no noise in the motor then it will be the oil pressure switch that is bad and needs replacing.

The Warning Light Comes on "Stop Engine Low Oil Pressure" what does this mean


car needs oil pressure or bearings will wear out in short time. Do not drive or start engine with this light on. Might only be pressure sending unit. Can replace sending unit and start briefly to see if problem resolves. If light still stays on, shut off engine and have oil pump replaced.
