If car drives and feels normal it could be just a bad sending unit but things need to be checked. The sending unit can be unscrewed and a gauge attached to see actual pressure if pressure is good change sending unit if it's not.... Easiest and cheapest is SEAFOAM. LUCAS also makes a good product to raise oil pressure

Transmission jumping and over drive light flashing ford contour 1996


If the fluid is full, it's most likely time to replace the transmission. How many miles are on the car? If you keep driving it like that, you will find yourself on the side of the road soon.

Have you ever heard of the engine oil reservoir being full and the dipstick reading empty? I just bought an old 1985 toyota pickup truck and it was fine until I had my oil changed. After driving for a...


When your car is low on oil, there is a sensor (sometimes called a switch, as well) that will light up an indicator inside the car to inform you of the low oil level. In some cases, checking the dipstick will show that there is actually oil present, which can be confusing and frustrating because it contradicts the sensor. If this happens to be the case, more than likely the oil pressure switch/sensor is malfunctioning and will need replacing.

My check engine light came on (blinking) I know that I am behind in oil changes, and I checked my oil, it is low. Will this cause the light to blink?


Your check engine light---indicates a possible system failure,nothing to do with oil
You have it checked for codes,diagnose the issue and repair

Your oil should never be low.
If you go as much as 5000 miles on an oil change and really drive it hard,you may loose a 1/2 qt in 5,000 miles

Oil light comes on during full throttle


That can be caused by low oil, low oil pressure, a filter starting to clog, wrong type of oil in engine, or the oil needing changed. You should first change the oil and filter then check your oil pressure and go from there.

The AC button light blinks on and off. AC won't


When the light is blinking that means there is a code in the system you will have to take it to a shop and have the codes read. Sometimes "Jiffy Lube" or "Rapid Oil Change" can read the code for but they won't fix it. If the blower motor only runs on high, the blower motor resistor is bad. When you put the fan switch on high it puts full voltage to the fan motor (blower motor) when the fan switch is in any other position, the voltage is reduced by the resistor causing the motor to run at slower speeds. The two problems are probably a result of the resistor.

I have a 1989 VW Cabrio 1.8L What kind of oil should I use living in VA and what kind of plugs are recommended. My oil light starts blinking after 10 minutes of driving when the rpm is under 1500 and...


ok any 10w30 oil should be fine I like ac delco plugs as for the oil light is it full? have you changed the oil filter? might have a clog if the car has not run for a whuile it might be full of gunk/residue from in the motor
usually this is a problem that happens at an idle and goes away when the motor is revved i know you say after 10 min under 1500 rpm but if it happens at higher rpm's you might be doing serious damage to the motor by running it and 1500 is kinda high for it to just be worn main bearings (one supply of oil preasure) the oil pump might be out the motor could be clogged small pathways for the oil return could be gunked up not alowing oil to return to the oilpan/oilpump dont think vacuum is the cause but is the guages even working right? you can get a cluster (3 guages oil temp voltages) fairly cheap 20$ or so try installing these even if just to make sure the guages in it are good I keep one in my toolbox for this hook it up check the readings see if they are safe hook the old stuff back up and put the guages back for next time
