SOURCE: low oil pressure indicator at low rpms (idle) '97 olds V8

Low pressure when at idle, after the engine has warmed up and the oil has thinned, indicates that the oil pump is worn and needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: 97 olds 88 check engine light on car stalls

when you say stalls, do you mean shut off of just get low on power?

my check engine light comes on and then oil press light come on and the car shuts off but the lights and music stayed on.
if its that the car needs oil and shuts down to protect itself but it will turn on minutes later.

if stalls periodically, shows check engine light and the car looses a bit of power, in the engine, :

1. your coolant may be having problems getting to the engine in the way it was met to get to the engine

2. the belt might be a bit off and that could be why you get the slipping feeling

3. your exhaust may be a bit clogged. or your engine may need cleaning

i had both problems my car shut off and my engine was slipping. my EXPENSIVE but great machanic found out it was my oil level and my coolant was rusty and not getting to the engine. now she drives like the original 97 olds 88

Have just changed oil filter, oil light came on, now car wont turn over


do you mean that the problem appeared soon after oil filter replaced and engine started and after the engine won't start again? If so means that there is an oil pressure problem and caused the engine to seize. The oil filter is either faulty or you had a bad luck the oil pressure pump broke off. Remove the oil filter and see whether is there any oil in it.

I have a 1994 oldsmobile 88 that runs good but shuts off at stops


When was the last time the fuel filter was changed, if you can't remember its time to change it, sounds like it plugging up. if that does not fix it do fuel pressure test, pump could be getting weak. but chg. fuel filter.
