SOURCE: High temp oil light coming on and off, oil pressure gauge reading

Add the quart of oil. Oil also acts as a coolant.

SOURCE: 97 F350 diesel check engine light stays on and is running rough?

Ok, lets take this from the top. I have a 97 f250 diesel. In mid may mine did the same thing. It's either one of two things. You have under valve cover harnesses (uvc). They slide in under your valve covers, you will see two wiring harnesses on the outside of the valve cover gaskets on either side of the block. Ok, it IS possible one of these slipped out of place and killed two of your injectors, causing the horrible running/ low idle/no power/ sounds like the truck is going to stall symptoms. The easiest way to check that is to unplug the wires while the truck is running and see if it kills the engine, if it doesen't unplug the other one on the same side of the valve cover. If both of these don't cause any change then you have a bigger problem, the IDM (Injector drive module).

FAIR WARNING: When you unplug the wires with the truck on it is extremely dangerous, it is 110 volt feed. It can kill you.

OK, the IDM is a silver box, 8"x10" approx dimensions, located on the driver side under the hood, over top the front tire. If you take the wires you unplugged and take a multi meter to them and they are dead, you have a bad IDM. This was the case with my truck. Ford designed the IDM to have a hole in the side to allow condensation to escape from it, unfortunately, this allows water inside and will short out resistors and practically kill half of your engine. Buy a new IDM on ebay for about $380. It takes 5 minuts to put it in.

I hope this helps you out man.

My Ford f-150 started this morning but engine shut off with the check gauge indicator light on. Oil pressure is low, oil leaked onto driveway. Engine cranks but will not start. No smoke or burning sme


Tony,
don't run it with low oil pressure - you will damage the engine. WHere did the oil leak out? Is it staying in now? Not sure what you mean by "check gauge" - maybe check engine? If you can pull the codes from the ECU that may help. WHere is the oil level on the dip stick? reply via comment to the orignial question.

2005 Mazda 6 oil light came on added oil light still on could this be the oil pump


The oil light means that the oil pressure is low. If the car is serviced regularly and the oil filter is not blocked, it will be the pump. Or the oil pressure sensor itself is faulty. Be very careful, driving a car with no oil pressure will kill your engine very quickly.

Check engine light blinking car shaking, oil light on after a few miles from starting


May be low oil, low oil pressure (faulty oil pump) or a bad pressure switch. When your at highway speeds the pump, pumps faster & brings the oil to the right PSI. Try a thicker oil than called for, get the oil pressure checked,oil leaks? & get the switch ckd out.

2000 Mitsubishi eclipse the oil light came on and my car shut down. I added 1 quart of oil and it was full but the car still won't start.


The oil light does not indicate the car is low on oil (based on your discription) it indicates the oil pressure is low, the no start is most likely due to this low pressure and the fuel pump has been cut off to prevent damage to the engine from low oil pressure. Please have a shop locate the cause of the low oil pressure warning and repair it as needed. It could be a false light or a real one, which means if you drove it very far you may have damaged the engines bearings.

Low oil pressure light


Usually on the side of the engine near the oil filter, or on the top behind the intake manifold depending on engine size.

Low oil light came on 2005 equinox checked oil it was low there is a ticking sound. I put 2 quarts in started back up, light is still on also still ticking.


The lifters have to be primed with oil. This may take a while. Let the engine run, after a while the oil pressue light will go out, and the clicking will stop. If you have lost oil pressure the engine will shut off as a safe guard so it is alright to let the engine run while clicking as long as you have oil in the case.
