It sounds like the oil pressure is dropping at low speed. You may try to change the sending unit first sometimes that may fix it. Hot is going to be over 220 degrees.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

Auto Transmission problem: Feels like it doesnt shift into OD and accelerates slow as if it stays in one gear. When put in 1st, it feels like the park brake is up of you're riding the brakes.


have you check the oil level on trans and have you change the oil on the engine lately check the levels on both. Usually on engine is too much oil car drags and on trans if low oil it usually stays in gear to protect the trans. your car is telling you check oil. No lubrication some warning lights do not come up for trans

The automatic transmission is bloked in 2nd


IS your automatic broken or will only go into 2nd gear .
Will it go into reverse gear or does it start off in 1st and then into 2nd and no other gears .
IT sounds like either the box is low in oil or the forward pump in the bottom of the box isent getting enough oil because of the filter on the pick up isent letting enough oil through and so the pump wont change the bands to 3rd and 4th gear so the first thing to do is to check the oil in the auto box 2nd thing is if low oil is to take off the pan on auto box and clean filter and check the pick up pipe,3rd thing is to check the forward band and if the oil is dark brown then the problem is burnt drive band and then thats a job for the auto box shop..
But check it out and let me know how you get on . Ron

My 04 dodge stratus oil light comes on when i slow down or come to a stop,but turns off as i go


Sounds like your oil level is too low.
When you slow down or stop, your oil levels out and is too low for the gauge to read.
When you speed up, your oil sloshes and splashes the sensor, thus making it appear that it is circulating properly, when it actually isn't.

Is your temperature high, too?

Goes into neutral and then shifts hard into 1st on slowdown


It sounds like your input clutch seals are rolling. Is the check engine light on. It could also be the pressure control solenoid could be causing the problem aswell
