In the oil pan on your car is a sensor that works the ckeck oil light. It is a two wire sensor that just unscrews. It has probably gone out, or hung up. It has a photo cell on it that can go out. If you replace it you might want to wait till your next oil change because you will lose all your oil. Good Luck

My achieva is leaking oil at the front of the engine. i cant see exactly but its above the oil filter some where. Where is it coming from and how do i fix it

It could be coming from the oil filter itself. Sometimes when changing the filter, people can overlook the fact that the gasket from the old filter may have stayed on the engine block. Then when the new one is installed the gaskets double up and it doesn't allow the filter to seal. Causing the leak.

What's the oil capacity for a 1995 Olds Achiva? I believe it's a 6 cylinder. Need to do an oil change....Thanks

Start at 5qts. It should take 5 1/2, Put 5 in, start it, let it run for 30 seconds, to fill the new oil filter, then shut it off and check the oil level, should be about a half quart low, then add what you need

How to remove oil pan from 1994 olds acheiva

raise car, remove any obstruction from out of the way of the oil pan. if you arent pulling the motor it will mean you need to drop the front k member. after that remove all bolts from pan, pry it off with a putty knife, remove old gasket with razor knife, reapply gasket, possibly adding RTV silicone if your car needs it. reverse all other steps and you are clear. unless you know for sure its just the oil pan leaking i would suggest changing front and rear main seals on the crank as well.
