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: 2000 pant firebird 3.8l low oil pressure at low

There is a possibility that the oil pressure sending unit is bad and not giving you correct readings at the lower pressures. Also, make sure that the oil is in fact full, and it is changed regularly.

SOURCE: 94 3.8 Firebird low oil pressure and making noise.

this can be an engine destroying problem, it is already to late if the engine is really noisy, get the oil pump replaced and cross your fingers that it is not to late for the engine.

Will oil pressure sensor shut the car down


The IPC illuminates the LOW OIL PRESSURE indicator in the message center when the powertrain control module (PCM) detects low engine oil pressure, and the signal circuit is low. The IPC receives a class 2 message requesting illumination message from the PCM.
No it can't shut down the engine !
No

My 99 firebird had low oil pressure, when i first started it it had a tapping noise for the first second or two then went away, had the oil changed and the pressure is still low, could it be my oil pump...


It can be a weak oil pump or sludge buildup. Have an oil pressure test run to verify this. I assume you are using the correct weight oil 5w30 and a quality filter such as AC/Delco, Purolator, or Wix. If not, change your oil and filter again with the correct weight oil and a good filter.

Icon on dashboard is an oil can. What does this mean?


Might mean that you are nearly out of oil. Add necessary oil as to vehicle's specifications and the icon should go away. Oil change every 3,000 miles. Also check on the internet in Chrysler Pacifica oil problems just for your info. townhall-talk.edmunds.com/direct/view/???.f12caf4 - Cached If icon re-appears, have you vehicle checked by a certified mechanic as you may have other issues. (sensor, PCV valve, etc.). Hope this solves your problem.

The car will not start. the engine turns over but will not start i have spark and gas... 3.4L 1994 firebird


1.= HOW MUCH FUEL PRESSURE DO YOU HAVE?
YOU NEED AROUND 30 TO 45 LBS.
2.= MAKE SURE YOUR FUEL PRESSURE DOES NOT DROP RAPIDLY AFTER YOU SHUT YOUR KEY OFF.
IF IT DROPS REPLACE YOUR PRESSURE REGULATOR.
3.= YUOR PLUGS COULD BE FOULED TOO, IT HAPPENS.
IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH FUEL PRESSUR THIS WILL CAUSE YOUR INJECTORS TO RUN RICH.

No oil pressure at idle once motor warm


Re-new the engine oil and see if the problem persists.
Low oil pressure at idle is usually a sign of a worn motor - worn camshaft and crank bearings allowing excessive oil to pass.

1999 firebird 3.8L low oil pressure at idle only when hot


your oil pump does that on purpose - more noticeable with a dented oilpan as pressure is slightly increased. nothing to do until it goes (if it goes) unless you want to throw parts at your car anyways.

Sputters and dies no power when happening


there is a idle adjusment screw, jus under the air filter.. check that, also check your spark plugs and wires to make sure all are firing and lastly i would look into the timing of it since its the hardest to do..
