Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

My dipstick is stuck and will only turn left or right but will not come out. I have a 2005 Honda Accord and the last oil change was fine and done at Jiffy Lube. When I went back to the same location the manager said the two employees who worked on my car are not employed with the company any longer and she would not attempt to dislodge it. I have an appointment for the check up and oil change tomorrow with the Honda dealer where I purchased the car. What can I expect and is this a common problem? Thanks! 708-807-3751

SOURCE: 2007 Escape oil pressure issue/oil pump

one thing to keep in mind that even though the vehicle is new you can still have major engine issues, because of the bearing material may have been bad at production.taking this in account any part on a vehicle can fail prematurely either because of poor insatllation or improper manufacturing. As far as oil filters are concerned bthe odds of mechanic installing the wrong filter are slim to none.the oil pressure sending unit only senses that here is oil flowing through it. it doesn't set the light off unless there is absolutely no pressure at all the only way to see the pressure is to have a gauge. oil prssure should be abot 45 psi at 2000 rpms. the only way a filter would effect oil pressure is if it was completely clogged. It would take a great deal of coolant in the oil to ruin a set of bearings and before that happens your vehicle would not run very well and you would notice a great amount of white smoke out the exaust. this would indicated either a blown head gasket.cracked head or a cracked block. you never mentioned what they found in the anaylasis of the oil. I presume that your vehicle is still under warrenty on the powertrain. I would suggest that you have the dealership check your oil pump out. every vehicle will have a small amount of metalic residue in the oil. large shavings and chunks of metal would be a worry. please rate this thanks.

SOURCE: Oil level problem with 2005 Audi A6 3.0 TDI Diesel Quattro

My 2005 A4 3.0 convertible audi is not a diesel, but I had a similar experience with a low oil signal going on and after checking the oil, which was sufficient, and replacing the dipstick, the light did not come back on until a subsequent trip. The light usualIy went on when I was close to the needing an oil change. I've had the car, a used one, for about two years, and the oil light minimum signal started behaving like yours early. About a week ago the oil pressure warning light came on. I don't know if there's a relationship, but if there is be careful. Audis of our vintage have a problem with sludge build up that damages the oil pump, which is a costly item. If you drive the car with low oil pressure you may seriously/fatally damage the car. I don't know if the sludge, if that's what you have, can be cleaned out, but I'd do it if it can be. My mechanic advised me to trade the car to a dealer rather than fix it. Hope you have better luck!

1996 honda accord won't start. drove 40 miles each way on friday and parked car .. first 40 miles was all stop and go traffice second 40 we took freeway all the way and just paid tolls, woke up sat...

There are several things that could cause this problem. First is when was the last time you replaced the fuel filter? Next thing you need to do is open your radiator cap to see if there is oil in your coolant and also pull your oil dipstick to see if there is any white stuff on the bottom of the dipstick. If either of these things are true then you have a blown head gasket. The last thing could be a bad coil or even engine control unit (ECU). Good luck.

96 Honda Accord won't start.

Check three things:
1. Oil is being "siphoned" by the flow of air when you drive (like a whistle)
Is the oil dipstick missing? or hanging out a little?
2. There may be too much oil in the crankcase. Turn OFF engine, clean oil dipstick and then check oil level. Too much oil will be drawn onto the engine.
3. The rubber seal around the PCV valve is compromised. Replace PCV valve ($6 AutoZone)

Questions: When you try to start the engine, what does it do?
the starter spins?
Do headlights stay ON when you try to start?

Transmission levels

Automatic or 5 speed?
5 speed manual-with car on level surface, remove oil filler bolt on the side of the transaxle (there is no dipstick). It is located by the right axle at approx. 9 o'clock position when viewed from over the right fender.
some tips-you need to check from under the car, so you will need to raise all four wheels to keep it level and be able to get under it. When the bolt is removed, oil should just barely flow out. If not, fill til it does. Remember that it's engine oil, not gear oil or auto trans fluid. You can pick up a turkey baster at the grocery store for a few $ to fill it if needed. Tighten bolt to 33 ft lbs when done.
Automatic: should be checked after engine reaches operating temp, and it has a dipstick, but it's low on the pass side (as you face the engine standing in front of the car. It's near or beneath the battery . Honda made screw in dipsticks and just the pull out type, can't remember which it is for 92, but it will be obvious when you tug it. Check with the engine OFF. Remove, wipe clean, insert, remove again for level check.

Maintenance light is blinking for a while in 2005 honda accord

To reset your light do the following:

1-Push maintence reminder button in and hold it in. (thats the button near the speedo on the insturment cluster)
2-Turn the ignition to the on position while holding button in.
3-Wait several seconds until the light goes out, then let go of the button.
It is now reset

Now this is the maintaince light and not the check engine light correct? If then just follow above and do that.

Also if you don't use Fram oil filters you can go 5000miles on your oil and be safe. Even honda says you can do 7000miles but 5000 gives you a buffer if you need to go over.
