SOURCE: Just had oil changed, dipstick reads full, but oil light flickers

the light is probably sending an OIL Pressure drop warning ---there is a rarity however
an oil filter may be improperly installed or the OIL Pressure connection on the oil pressure
sending unit --usually next to the filter --is loose or corroded or the oil pressure sending unit may
be going bad ---on a 2001 it is conceivable
otherwise you have an internal oil pressure leak --crank or cam bearings --bad o ringy thingy somewhere or the oil pump --may be experiencing problem too or the pick up screen in the oil pan
is somwhat clogged ---for a clog --try what's called SEAFOAM in the oil ---the stuff actually works
like it says on the can --about 8 bucks --drive for a week --say 500 miles worth and change the oil filter again --just the filter ---either way OIL Pressure is nothing to ignore ---you need to fix that
asap depending on the problem source!!!
I hope this helps

More than likely (and we will hope) it is the oil sending unit. In comparison it is a very cheap and quick fix to replacing the oil pump. Auto Zone has a pretty good componet location section that has tips for replacement if you cant find the sending unit or the oil pump. Try that first it may save you a lot of work.

SOURCE: 1994 buick lesabre heater core removal

The heater core is located under the dash, in the center. The container holding the core looks like a black plastic box. Remove the ash tray for easier access. You may have to also remove some other covers under the dash. You must first drain the radiator then you have to disconnect the hoses. There are two hoses connected to nipples of the heater core that go thru the center of the firewall. Remove the screws that hold on the cover to the heater core. Then you should be able to get the old one out. There might be a couple of other minor steps but I'm sure you can figure them out. For re-installation just go in reverse order to put it all back together.

How many quarts of oil in 89 buick lesabre?


Should be about 4.
When you add 4, then park the car on a level surface, and wait about 15 minutes, and then check the level with the dipstick.
The low line and the full line are 1 quart apart.
Be blessed.

Milky oil dipstick, white exhaust smoke, coolant in spark plugs


*White milky oil on dipstick = coolant in oil.
*Coolant on sparkplugs = cracked head or blown head gasket
*White smoke = burning excessive oil in the cylinders, which can be caused by a number of things including valve seals, cracked head or blown head gasket.
***All three of these symptoms together, however, means its the head or head gasket. Both are costly but better the head gasket than the entire head.

My 1994 Buick Lesabre was spewing white smoke from the tail pipe . I took the heads off and had them tested. No cracks -then had them planned down flat and a mechanic rebuilt and replaced using new bolts...


Classic signs of coolant in the oil and since heads were repaired and sealed, it could be a cracked block.
Coolant is mixed in oil and coolant impedes lubrication of engine thus hard to turn over and start.
One last hope is to drain crank case, refill with fresh oil and new filter.
Add Barr's leak "copper" )(looks like liquid copper and costs about $10) sealant to coolant fluid. Run the engine a few times to full warm up, each time observing for tell-tale white smoke from exhaust. Check dipstick level between each cycle.
If problem subsides, go buy a lottery ticket as you're very lucky. If not, a new engine or short block is on the menu.

Good Luck

Dic warning "engine Oil Low - Check Level" but the oil on dipstick indicates full - also oil pressure indicates normal????


you may have a sensor bad in the crankcase that detects oil level.
I would disregard as long as the oil is changed regularly, and you have no pressure problems and the level on the dipstick is within the cross hatches or between the low and high range.

Ask about...a problem with my buick lesabre 1994


Yes, the oil should not be up too high on the indicator. To see what the service engine soon is telling you go to a Checker Auto, O'Rielly Auto Parts, or any other auto parts store that offers free automotive scans and they will tell you why your light is on. If the person whom is performing the scan is nice you can ask them to clear your codes. Fix that oil problem ASAP!
