Oil light just started yesterday, fades in and out, checked oil, okay

Check the connection where the wire plugs onto the sender unit. If it's loose, or the wire shorts out to the body, it might flicker. If this isn't the problem, unscrew the sender unit and check your oil pressure using an oil pressure gauge screwed into the same hole. The pressure should be above 40 psi if my mind serves me correct. If it's too low you'll have to replace or check the oil pump. Did you replace the oil filter and oil recently? If the filter is blocked or the oil is old it might also cause the pressure to drop too low.

Leaking coolant while parked and driving, leaking oil, tranny slipping and shutters and chirps when shifting, lagging acceleration, hard to drive up mountains


You need to have the cooling system pressure tested. This will tell you what and where the leaks are. The oil leaks are probably due to age of gaskets and seals. With age comes issues with vacuum lines too.

Check engine light comes on and only stays on for a few seconds, havent noticed anything different when it happens... ???


You can get free scans at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. Sometimes a better scanner is needed at a Dealer because the cheaper scanners need a "check engine" light to be on steady to get a reading.
The better Dealer scanners can access "Intermittent defects" logged in your onboard computer. It all depends on the design of the onboard computer as some will accumulate the Intermittent defects and may set a steady "Check" code after a number of defects are registered. Other designs may just ignore or lose the intermittent info.

2006 Kia Optima oil light flashes sometimes when Ideling. Don't know what to do.


When the oil lamp lights, it means that your oil pump is not giving the right pressure or it is not working, If it only happens during idling, it indicates that the pump is about to wear and needs servicing, If its intermittent, it may just be a loose wire connection to the sender or a defective sending unit. Try to replace first the oil pressure sending unit.

Check engine light on for sometime; Response to throttle sluggish


If your catalytic converter is "below efficiency" or otherwise clogged, you will lose power as you drive and the vehicle heats. The more you drive the vehicle, the worse the problem will become. The exhaust can't escape properly through the catalytic converter, therefore your engine won't run properly. Your issues are related, and if you replace your catalytic converter they should go away.
