Usually means your head gasket is leaking, or someone messed up and put water in the oil fill.

Most likely a bad head gasket is allowing oil to mix in with the engine coolant.

Peugeot 307 1.4 2004 temp gauge isn't lifting? Oil ok water ok dash giving an alarm sound off?


Have the system pressure tested first, next any rust is bad news, it usually means that you have a seeping head gasket, the combustion gases are very corrosive and that causes the coolant to turn rusty fairly quick. To verify the engine is reaching proper temperature use a manual gage, if it is then check the gage sending unit for proper resistance value. That gunk you call Mayo is oil mixed with water in most cases.

Why is my car not starting after overheating?


The first thing to check is the oil. If there is no oil in the motor, the first thing you want to do is to get some witnesses, hopefully someone (s) who know how to check the oil level. Then have the same person looking under the motor to see if the oil drain plug (or bolt) is still installed on the oil pan. Remember NOT TO ADD NEW OIL to the motor if it has no oil.
If the motor has no oil, make sure you don't start nor drive the car. Contact the shop that supposedly replaced the oil, and make sure that your witnesses back-you up when you need them. Don't let the shop take your car and then tell you that the motor had oil in it.
If the motor has oil in it, then do some of the things other posters have told you to do.

Oil pressure on my 1996 Dodge Ram pickup is running low even though my oil level is fine


have the oil pressure checked with an independent gage as sometimes gages in the dash don`t show correct pressure. how long has it been since the oil was changed as oil when it gets dirty it thins out and can affect oil pressure. if you don`t hear any ticking with the motor running chances are the pressure is either good or just a little low. testing oil pressure with an independent gage will tell the tale.

What causes yellow gunk in the oil cap on my 2004 chevy trailblazer


Could be a leaking head gasket or intake gasket.
The gunk is water or coolant. Water if the engine never warms up, coolant if there is a leak.

My oil pressure gage on my 2004 gmc envoy needle has move past 80. I checked the oil its fine. And the suv still running good with no smoke.


It is very possible that the stepper motor that drives the gauge is going bad and needs to be replaced. There are services that repair clusters, check on Ebay.

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

ELECTRICAL PROBLEM


The prob seems like you have connected the power to your stero from the wrong place. You cut into live a wire for the power, this should be connected at the ACC on your fuse panel. Also make sure you stero has a good ground! Frankster016
