Sounds like the engine may have failed, but if u want to see where the oil is comming from buy some engine clearner spray down the top and bottom of engine and hose off, then run it and look for the leak, make sure the crankcase is full before u do this and that it has oil pressure, no use making things worse, u could also use a pressure washer, they are cheap to rent. Check around the oil filter 1st

Oil pressure light comes on when engine warms up.replaced oil pressure switch .still the same . its an audi a3 2002


Dear John,
I am glad you only replaced that switch!
The best action to take for that symptom is to have a mechanic unscrew that O P switch and insert a oil pressure gauge and test the oil pressure with a meter, hot and cold.
If it is not up to par when hot, there are several possibilities.
1) If the oil is fresh & the right viscosity, you could have a failing or a leaking oil pump. It can leak inside the engine.
2) You may have a plugged up oil screen on the oil pump.
3) You may have a bearing or some other such part failing causing an engine oil hemorrhage inside the motor.
An authorized and helpful Audi dealership should be able to tell you if other Audis are having this problem and what is causing it.
God bless your efforts.

I have a 2004 Toyota highlander leaking oil, oil light comes on. Could it be the rubber rings?


a 2004 toyota highlander V6

this should be your engine type
The 2GR-FE is a 3.5 L (3456 cc)

if leaks are that bad
always check the engine oil level before you drive off

fixing oil leaks on motors
degrease whole motor top and bottom

start with replacing the oil sender it may be the cause of the oil light coming on
after degrease
lay cardboard or paper under the car
take out for a drive and park over the paper over night

this pin points most of the oil leak locations
leaks from a V6 motor
rocker covers/ spark plug tube 0 rings.engine seals
cam seals
front and rear engine seals leak often
sump gasket can leak

if oil consumption or light on continues
can be a failing engine oil pump
or worn main bearings giving low oil pressure to the whole engine
you could be burning oil from worn piston rings
or hardened valve stems

a mechanic can fit an oil pressure gauge to the motor when hot
to check running oil pressure to confirm low oil pressure

if engine is worn out

it is possible to fit a lower mileage used motor to your highlander
its often cheaper than and engine rebuild

High temp low oil pressure light comes on after driving for a few minutes, then off when engine at driving rpm. At stop light (idle or low rpm) light comes back on. Normal driving it goes out.


You need to find out why you have low oil pressure. It is normal that as engine rpm's increase, the oil pressure will rise- the oil pump is moving oil faster. Even though your light goes out, you could still have critically low oil pressure. There should be sufficient pressure at idle to keep the light off. The light will come on when your oil pressure is almost nil- I believe for some it's as low as 8 psi. Normally, oil pressure at idle is specified anywhere from 15 to 40 psi. You would have to check specifications for your Expedition. To verify oil pressure, hook up a mechanical gauge at the oil pressure sending unit on the engine block. Check with a local shop.

The causes run from easy, simple to budget busting ruin. Low oil level, wrong grade oil, real old oil, oil leaks, internal oil leaks, worn oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings. It was pretty common on older very high mileage cars to have a fluttering oil light at stops and idle. It was time for a rebuild, or time to look for another car.

I have a 1984 ford f150, I starts a runs until I come to a stop then It just shuts off...Whats wrong? I also have low oil pressure, and my dip stick for my oil looks kinda milky.


The problem you have is a cracked block. This allows water to get into your oil, and that causes the milky appearance. As you might imagine, this is not a good thing. You can try the block seal, but, there are no guarantees. Good luck. Oh, and by the way, it has nothing to do with the dip stick, just the water and oil failing to mix.

My 1995 Chevy tahoe is hard to start, runs rough when you start out, has high oil PRESSURE


not enough info, what engine, fuel injected? if so what type, multi port, or throttle body? oil pressure is not the problem, it could have a Hi-Perf. oil pump. fix the leaks, they will make a horrible odor. and coolant leaks will make it run hot.

My car smells like its burning oil, and there is oil in my spark plug wells. Guy at auto parts store says I need to replace oil gaskets that go around spark plugs. Is this a valid diagnosis and if so is it...


As far as I know spark plugs only have a metal type washer to seal, and there is no other oil seal needed. I have know oil to leak from rocker cover and fill spark plug wells, but tis also often covers engine. Burning oil smell couldbe from oil going onto the outside of hot engine. Check oil loss via dip stick. Clean all oil from outside engine to find out sites of leaks. Hope this helps.

2006 Pacifica 3.5L I have a small coolant leak on the passenger side. The coolant will trickle down and drip from oil pan. The puddle is only 2 inches wide. I did a pressure test at 17PSI and I lost 2PSI...


It is a possibility that the leak may come from bad seals from the water pump or a bad water pump. If you also observe bubble in the coolant inside the radiator when the car is running or water coming out of the exhaust you may have a bad head gasket. The coolant comes out of the bad part of the head gasket near the outside which lets water outside the engine as well.

Oil leak passenger side 300 turbo sedan, some on front passenger side wheel. Never lost oil pressure, but dipstick showed very little oil in crankcase on immediate after-run check. Have not started...


Add about 2.5-quarts of new engine oil to the engine.
Remove the passenger-side wheel, and support the car on jack-stands.
Start the engine and look for oil leak.
Chances are leaks are coming from failed oil-pan gasket or the drain-plug.
The head-cover gasket could be failing as well..
