When you give it gas or idle for awhile the pressure will build up to normal and turn off the light.

If you are consuming oil and coolant you should check your head gasket also.

My engine in my 2003 nissan sentra shut down while driving home.When i try starting the car it will catch but wont turn on and the brake light and oil light are stuck on.


hi
check the engine oil.
if there was no oil left in the engine then good chance of engine seizing.
do not carry on starting the engine as you will bend the valves.

My 1994 chevy camero I fill it with coolent 15 mins of driving it , I open the cap and the coolent is low , and it's not leaking on the ground so I fill it up again and the same thing happins again


You may have a blown head gasket. Pull out the engine oil dipstick and check the color of the oil. If it is black / honey color, that's OK. If your head gasket is blown into the water jacket, there will be oil in the sump, and the oil on your dipstick will be a greyish color.
Another check is to open the radiator cap (the one on the radiator, not the one on the plastic filler bottle) and start the engine. Now look into the open radiator and rev the engine slighly. You might see gas bubbles in the water, indicating a compression leak to the water jacket. Also a smell of burnt gas coming from the radiator indicates the same thing.
Let us know if this helps, so we can check other options.

Can I use Mobil 1 sunthetic oil for the engine of 2005 1.8SE Nissan Sentra?


Sure, the only issue is oil comsumption. If you put the oil in and start to consume too much oil, consider HIGH MILEAGE Blend. These oils are both synthetic and regular oil. Casteroil and others make this oil.

Oil light staying on. There is plenty of oil in the motor. Removed the oil pressure switch and no oil came out of the motor.


Don't start the engine any more, we know it's not getting oil up there, will cause major engine damage, replace oil pump and pick up screen.

Oil consumption, rattle, engine noise


Check under the hood and inspect the valve cover gasket. If it's bad it would explain why you don't see any leaks on the ground because it's probably burning off on the manifold. This ticking you're hearing is a lack of lubrication to the rocker arms. Apart from the valve cover gasket, you should get under the car and inspect the oil pan and oil filter for seepage. Best of luck on your problem.

73k miles needs new engine? 2002 Sentra SER


Did u add oil and attempt to start car? What's it doing? How often did u have to add a quart of oil (in miles)?
It does sound like it was consuming too much oil, but once u run it dry, there is no warantee that will cover it, so manufacturer can't (won't) help u on this. I agree, an engine rebuild would be VERY expensive due to no oil damage, the best thing to do (if the car is in good shape otherwise, trans. good, body good) would be to find a used motor from a scrap yard (must be careful to check mileage and that the 'donor' car wasn't in a bad front end collision which may cause engine problems) or a re-manufactured engine. Any further questions, let me know, sorry for the bad news.
