The oil pump broke down or the oil pickup was blocked not feeding oil to the engin. The bad news, the engin is probely ceised and will cost a lot of money to repair, if it is repaireble.Alternetive is to replace the engin. Could be cheaper than repair.

Engine temp gage spikes to 260 degree when


are you sure the cooling fans are working?
Is the coolant temp gauge telling the truth?
have you lifted the hood and heard the coolant bubbling into the overflow?
Or heard the tinging sound of a red hot engine?
If he did a liquid test with the dye,and it changed colors it should have changed very fast,
Another thing to think about if he was to take the fan belt off,and pull the thermostat housing off,and removed the thermostat,Now pour coolant into the thermostat hole to almost the top,Now start the car and see which side the bubbles come from,left or right,that will be the gasket that is leaking not both.

Oil lite came on right after oil pan gasket


Hi. This issue has several causes, but the oil light indicator is a strong sign of low pressure in the engine. This will cause the engine lubrication rate to drop, thus, producing a illuminated oil light, and erratic Oil pressure readings. The necessary actions are to have a manual oil pressure test ran on this engine, asap. When running a manual oil pressure test, you will discover if the true oil pressure is low, or normal. If the test proves that the oil pressure is, indeed, low, this will confirm that the Oil pump is suspect.

Now, if the true readings given during the manual oil pressure test are indicating that the pressure is normal, this will be the result of a failed sending unit(oil pressure switch).

Oil lite on immediately after oil pan gasket replaced. What cause


never ever trust a gauge or indicator light. what is the fluid level on the dipstick? maybe the shop that changed the oil didn't put any in it.

Immediately after oil pan gasket change, oil lite came on, but oil full. 1995 Olds 98 regency


Oil could be full, but does it give the correct amount of oil pressure? Check the oil pressure with a by-pass gauge on the engine. That will answer all.

Was driving on the interstate and it just shut down.


The dip stick only checks the oil in the oil pan. If the oil pump stopped working it would leave the oil in the pan and not send it to all the pieces that need it in the engine itself. A piston or rod or something could have siezed and it would still show full oil. If there was oil under the car and you know it came from your car, find where the oil is comeing from and we can try to narrow down the problem.
