No, this is definatly not your problem. low oil will usually turn on the oil light not the check engine light. your going to have to have a scan tool hooked up to it to pull the trouble code. you can try unhooking the battery for 10 minutes or so... this will clear the memory, but the light will most likely come back on

Blue smoke coming from exhaust


Blue smoke coming out of the exhaust indicates that oil is getting into the piston cylinder and being burned along with the gas. This could be a leaking head gasket, worn piston rings, or the wrong weight engine oil (viscosity too low). A leak down test will be needed to diagnose.
Have you checked your engine oil level?

Leaking oil tahoe


The rear seal of the engine could have started to leak but a loose oil pan or damaged oil filter could be a factor.

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

My Honda Accord 1996 Vtec Engine Oil Short after i travelled long distance


If you are saying your oil level is low, then you need to add oil to your engine. If you are concerned that the oil level was low after your long drive, it would depend on how long it has been since you added oil or even checked your oil level.Engines will consume oil over a long period of time. Especially if the oil is not changed according to manufacturers recommendations. Unless the low oil level was sudden I would not be concerned. If it happened suddenly and in a short period of time, look for an oil leak of indication of the engine burning the oil, such as smoke at the exhaust pipe.

Hi I've got 2door rav4 1995 model. Its got a dip stick at the bottom of the engine. I was wondering what is that for coz my rav4 is leaking oil and that dip stick is giving me low in oil. Hope you can...


The dipstick shows your engine oil level. If it is low, add oil to the engine by locating the oil cap. Usually has the word oil on it or "Engine Oil for Gasoline Engines) on it. As for the oil leak, try and locate it as soon as possible.

Flahing service engine light soon and engine began shaking


Yep 20 seconds on a machine turning 650 rpms is low on oil wil destroy the bearings in the pistons and crankshaft. Mechanics refer to the red check engine light as the idot light, because by that time it's to late the car ran low on oil and damaged the engine.Try putting some SPT oil treatment in and see if it will fix it temporally otherwise you may be looking for a engine overhaul. If the yellow check engine light is flashings you may have burned the rings up on the pistons and it is now burning oil, or more oil causeing it to throw a code for the 02 sensor. Good luck

1996 chevy blazer engine light is on but the truck run just fine?


Typically there would be a different light that would come on if the oil pressure is too low so that would make me think that they aren't related.  Either way, I would definitely fill the oil level back to the recommended level and take the vehicle to your local auto parts store and have them check the code.  If it is the oil, have them reset the code and just keep and eye on you oil level every week.  If it is not, write down what the code is and get back on here to see what we can do to help you out.  Good luck!

Saw oil leak and really worried


Our son just replaced the front crankshaft seal on his but the check engine light wouldn't turn on unless the oil level had gotten way too low.
Said the replacement wasn't that difficult but he had to do it twice as a gasket did not align correctly the first time.
