Hi I have just bought a Toyota Celica and found that the engine sump is badly dented !! I have had it inspected and I am told there is a slight leak - should I have the sump replaced or keep an eye on the...


Replacing it will provide worry-free driving, but if it does not fit your current budget and (1) it is a small leak and (2) you are diligent about checking & maintaining your oil level, then let it go for now.

Only you know if the cost of replacement is "worth it" for you. Get several competing estimates to get a true sense of the repair. If you can not check & fill the oil level as often as needed, the leak will lead to a much costlier repair.

Good luck!

I just got an oil change less than 3 weeks ago and today my engine starts knocking and my oil light is on, could that be a bad O2 sensor?


No Bad o2 But Check oil Level. How old Was The oil That Came Out? Fresh oil Will Clean Out Sludge Deposits If The oil Was'nt Changed In A Timely Manor It could Have caused leaks. also Check Drain Plug Gasket for leaks And Make Sure Oil Filter Is Correct And Tight.

2005 grand Prix oil pressure light an dinging comes on


1. Check your oil level. If oil level is not ok, correct oil level and find out why oil level was low and correct the problem. (Leaks, bad PCV, Burning oil due to severe engine wear, nobody has bothered to check it for the last 3000 miles, WAY overdue for an oil change, etc.) If oil level is ok, proceed to next step.

2. Remove the oil pressure sensor and install a manual oil pressure gauge. Run engine to verify low oil pressure. If gauge shows that the oil pressure is low, overhaul or replace engine. If oil pressure is ok, replace oil pressure sending unit and retest.

What causes the oil light to come on?


The oil light will come on orange if your oil level is low. The oil light will come on red if your oil pressure is low. The oil light will come on, then turn off if your oil level sensor needs replacing. Alex

STP won't stop the leak, only disassembling and replacing the seal. However, the car could be burning oil but the catalytic converter will complete the combustion of the 'smoke' to water (H2O) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

At 230,000 KM, I wouldn't be surprised that the rings are worn or the valve seals are leaking internally.

03 Mazda 6: Check engine light on, code po174


The oil pressure sensor does not have much to do with the P0174 code so the leak on the gasket is not the cause, usually it is the air mass sensor, or the intake sensor. if you have a leak of oil, this might as well mean that whoever changed the oil did not put the right specs of it and this caused the oil to get through. After some time you will experience that the rpms will reach only certain level and won't go higher. Change oil to the right specs and get the sensor cleaned if not to late or replaced (will be expensive). Gasket change wil be needed as well.

Gauges say no pressure in engine 1995 vw golf


Get someone to check oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, to verify whether you have oil pressure or not. These engine/vehicles, have 2 warning sensors & a control module in the instrument panel. Once you know you have pressure for sure, then you can proceed from there.
