SOURCE: Blinking oil light on 2003 Mazda Protege. Changed

You need to reset your change oil warning light. To do this, turn the ignition key to on but do not turn over the engine. Then rapidly push down the gas pedal three times. This will reset the system and turn off the blinking light. Then when you drive another 3000 miles, that light will once again tell you it is time to have your oil changed. J.

SOURCE: Oil pressure light at idle

when the light comes on at idle do you notice any engine noise different from the norm.if not then the oil pressure sensor(ops) is bad/weak and will need to be changed.if you hear abnormal noise with the light on then you will have to have teh oil pressure checked to see if its within specs.

How to tell the motor oil is filled on the dip stick

The dip stick has markings on it showing the level it should be at.

Is 3 litres of castrol gtx too much for a 2005 tazz/carri 1.3? It's about 5 mm about the max mark on the dipstick.

Normally your engine oil capacity is four liters. at the dip stick ,there is a marking "min" and "max" which indicates the level of oil inside your engine. This marking represents one liter capacity. So when you measure it and the oil level is in between the min and max markings that means you need to add half a liter of oil. As in your case its already too much oil and this could lead to a hotter engine.

I own a 2003 mazda tribute. The oil light stays on but the car does not need oil

Usually the oil warning light means the engine oil pressure is low, or the sending unit has failed.

Where is the oil senor for the dash light

Its on the engine but you will have to specify the make and model of the car to get the exact location of the sensor. The light indicates low pressure so it is probably near the oil pump. Most of the time when the light comes on the oil level is too low, causing pressure to drop. You can check the oil level with the dip stick. Do not drive your car with the oil light on. Low pressure can cause significant wear on the engine in a short time and eventually cause the engine to seize up completely.

Does a catera have a dip sick

A dip stick is the indicator so the opeator (driver) can check your oil. The dip stick got its name because the end "dips" into the oil reservoir, or as some call it "Oil Pan" The oil dip stick is located on the left side of the engine towards top and is colored yellow at the circular loop for a finger hole. Find your oil filler cap, where you add oil.. it will say 5/w20 or something along that number. Standing at the front passenger side of the car with the hood up look to the front left corner area about a foot into the engine compartment area. DO NOT RUN ENGINE IF YOU BELIEVE THE OIL LEVEL IS EXTREMELY LOW. You can do step 3-6 with a cold engine to guage if you are extremely low on oil before starting the car. Also note that your oil should be checked in the following fashion. 1. Make sure car is on a level flat surface. 2. Make sure the engine off but warm. Either after having driven it or running for 5 minutes. 3. Pull dip stick and wipe all oil from it with a clean cloth, paper towel, etc. I say "Clean" as you will be able to see the color of the oil and if its contaminated in any way. 4. Place the diptstick back in the tube all the way until the finger hook sets in place. 5. Remove quickly and observe reading at tip of dispstick. 6 Proper oil at this point should be 3/4 of the way to Maximum indicator. YOur dipstick may say MAX or may have two dots seperated by a hashed area. Either way you should be 3/4 of the way to the top dot or max indicator. If you arent then add the recommened oil for your vehicle (you can find the best oil for your car at www. and the proper weight and type) I would add it a half quart at a time depending you how far you are from MAX mark. If you are within 1/4 of the MIN or Lower dot.. closest to the end of the dipstick then you should add a quart fully and then add in 1/2 quart increments until you can do the test and see the oil at the proper level. DO NOT RUN CAR if you believe you are extremely low on oil.

It sounds like you are looking at what is on the engine oil fill cap. If that's so, running it empty will absolutely cause major damage to your engine. Locate the dip stick and check the oil level in the engine and add SAE 5w-20 Oil as needed.CAUTION--- Be careful not to overfill.

Oil Light comes on VW passat

Start checking the oil level, if oil is low then the problem is a leak or weared rings.

If oil level is ok, check that the oil pump has enough pressure.

If oil pump is also fine, then scan the ECU (car computer) and replace the sensor if you do not find anything else being wrong.
