SOURCE: low oil pressure

usually that could mean a failing oil pump....or a clogged pickup in the oil pan, could also mean you have a leak somewhere. the car shutsoff because it protects itself from killn itself

SOURCE: oil pressure low

DON'T DRIVE ANOTHER MILE !!!! The 1.8 is known for a sludge buildup in the engine. This is the exact symptem that shows its head. The car HAS to be TOWED to a garage before you cause any further damage. Do a google search, "vw 1.8 sludge", and see what comes up...

What does low oil pressure on 2008 Chevy Impala 3.5 V6 LS

Do you mean what causes low oil pressure? This is a very reliable engine for the most part. If the oil light is on or gauge is reading low, have the oil pressure sensor inspected for failure. These sensors do go bad.

My cat 305 mini ex run for a little while then goes dead the fuel shut off kill the engine for some reason any ideas

two units that can shut down a motor are low oil level/pressure switch/ sensor and low coolant level/ coolant temperature sensor
there may be a sensor for hydraulic pump pressure / levels
a safety sensor ---seat belt or operator bar may also be a cause of the stoppage
best have a service technician check it out

Im stumped have a 08 superduty 6.4 just rebuilt the eng started eng has 10 psi oil pressure its a new oil pump every thing had breakin lube and the pressure releaf valve is all the way up,i have oil i

Sounds like there is wear elsewhere causing the drop in oil pressure. I thicker oil will raise the pressure but could also further damage the engine.

Leaking oil tahoe

The rear seal of the engine could have started to leak but a loose oil pan or damaged oil filter could be a factor.

Low oil cause low oil pressure

No, the oil level nothing to do with the pressure.
If you have low pressure, check the sender unit, check the pressure with a mechanical gauge, if still low, check the pump

Why is my engine knocking when i come to a complete stop. when i turn the corner i hear squealing.

Low oil pressure will cause engine knocking at idle. Pressure climbs and properly lubes engine at higher RPM> Check your oil level.

Squealing may be caused by a loose/worn belt on the power steering system.

Oil pressure or temperature can cause overheating problem?

Low oil level can cause an engine to run hot but the pressure must be extremely now for that to cause a rise in operating temperature. Naturally, if the temperature is high on the guage, the engine is already overheating, and there are a multitude of reasons why an engine could overheat, from silly things like low tyre pressures to low coolant levels and water leaks. If you like, come back with some more specific information and lets see if we can put a finger on your problem.

I have VW bora that the transmission had been rebuild with a new oil pump ,but now the oil pressure is only reading 75 PSI at 2000 RPM what can be the cause

You do not need huge oil pressure to have the oiling system do its job. Pressure can be low, like 20 psi and still lube and protect..... Too high pressure blows seals and the like.... The lubrication system and its pressure depend on all of the clearances to be tight enough (meaning oil pressure lubed areas like cam, crank mains, lifters, rods, etc. So, the top limit of the pressuer is controlled by a relief valve, usually on the pump or the oil filter. this limits the upper amount of pressure that you can develop.

Are you consuming, or burning oil? How many miles before you add a quart of oil? Factories claim a quart in 600 miles okay. But for me, I need 1500 to 2500 miles at one quart is normal....

But Your issue...Are there any other symptoms of anything?

Had a faulty oil filter put in by Jiffy Lube. Low oil pressure light came on after about 2000 miles into oil change. Jiffy Lube stated it was a faulty oil filter and replaced it. Drove off and light...

I can tell you that it sounds like someone is trying to take you for a ride.. I've been a mechanic for 28 years. And I've never heard of o rings going bad on a motor that only has 56000 miles. Change the oil filter again.. make sure that it's not a fram.. gram filters have been known to cause your oil pressure light come on. Hope this helps you.

Getting oil in radiator --but no water in the oil--its NOT a blown head gasket or head -we allready checked that out -it's a datsun 1971 1600 cc engine with very low miles =truck runs great

What about the possibility of a crack in head gasket between oil passages and coolant passages. Oil pressure would be higher than cooling system pressure, thus oil would be more likely to enter cooling system, than coolant enter oil /lube system. Just a thought. Have you done a cooling system pressure test, just to see if any drop at all in pressure? Seeing how engine would not be running, oil pressure would be 0, and may allow coolant to seep through same path, only from cooling system, to oil. Is it a large amount that your getting?
