SOURCE: check engine light is on,display says restricted performance

Anything can cause the check engine light to go on from a loose gas cap, to a transmission issue. When the onboard computer detects an issue, it will restrict performance so as to not damage the engine any further. An Oil change won't affect this light. The only way to determine the cause of the light is to have the computer scanned with an OBD-II tool (Autozone does this for free) to determine the codes and cause for the light. You can also clear the light with the OBD-II tool, but if the problem is still there, the light will just come back on

SOURCE: MY 1998 JAGUAR XJ8L IS TURNING OVER BUT WONT

Start with one quart but continue to put it in until the level reaches the full mark on the dipstick. Your car requires synthetic oil, 5/30w is fine, personally I wouldn't put synthetic in right away as I would check to see if it starts first and then if it does, change all the oil to synthetic asap. I say this only because there is no point pouring expensive oil into an engine that may require major repairs...which is possible if it was run low on oil for any length of time.

Hope this helps,
Dave

SOURCE: SEEMS TO RUN FINE IN IDLE, LOW OIL PRESSURE LIGHT, WANTS TO STALL

CHECK OIL LEVEL FIRST.IF LOOKS OKAY HAVE OIL PRESSURE CHECKED IF OIL PRESSURE GOOD.YOUR OIL FILTER AND OIL HAS BEEN CHANGED AND OIL NOT TOO HEAVY OR THICK AND YOU ARE USING THE RIGHT OIL VISCOSITY.YOU COULD HAVE A FAULTY OIL PRESSURE SWITCH.IF CAR STALLING IN MOTION YOUR FUEL FILTER STOPPED UP OR FUEL PUMP GOING BAD.

I HAVE A 1993 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE LARDO THAT RUNS LIKE A TOP UNTIL IT GETS WARM...THEN IT STALLS OUT LIKE IT IS OUT OF FUEL. STARTS AND STALLS!!! WHY DOES IT DO THIS?


Have you or did you hook up to an analyzer to check the codes----here are some things that change due to heat are: O2 sensor---ignition coils----ignition timing pickup sensors----EGR valve {too much air or recirculating exhaust gas--(mechanically & computer controlled)}---gas regulator----fuel line breaking down and swelling up when heated restricting flow----this is way out but how's the oil pressure---some vehicles have an oil pressure switch that when the pressure is too, low it will shut the vehicle off, saving the motor---some with low coolant will do this----wire connections that are deteriorating will break down under heat

Jag Stype 6 cyl. getting restricted performance and car feels powerless when this light comes on.


Your picture of the light didn't seem to come through. Several things will cause restricted power.... a dragging emergency break, a plugged fuel filter, plugged air filter, plugged exhaust pipe and finally check all the fluid levels in the motor as some cars have a limp mode if a level is too low, especially on the oil side.... also make sure the gas cap is tight... a lot of viechle will act up if the vapor return line doesn't have the proper pressure in the gas tank. Next would be wires and plugs, distributer cap and distributer button... spark plugs can run fine at low rpm but foul at higher rpm.

if did, diagnose stalling, ask !

This could be a low oil pressure problem or a failing oil pressure sending unit (sensor). It could even be diluted engine oil. If it has been a while since the engine oil was changed, then change the oil and filter. If you still have the problem, then perform an oil pressure test and measure the actual oil pressure. It should not drop lower than 7 PSI at idle with a warm engine. If it does, then there is an internal problem with the engine like failing oil pump or worn bearings. If the oil pressure tests ok, then have the oil pressure sending unit replaced.

Everytime we stop at light the oil light comes on then turns off as soon as gas pedal is pressed


The oil lights come on because there isn't enough oil pressure in the engine... When you come to a red light, the engine is at idle in a lower rpm and there isn't enought oil in your engine to cycle, thus creating low pressure, and the indicator comes on, however when you rev your engine or press the gas pedal, the remaining oil that you have in your engine is being cylce because of higher rpm, thus bypassing the oil sensor. Solution to this, is you need to add oil to the apropriate oil level AS SOON AS POSSIBLE or get a oil change before driving this car any longer as major mechanical issue may occur if you do not get this taken care of. You can buy a quart of oil at walmart or your local gas station and add it and get you by until you get it to the gas station. You may want to constantly keep a eye on the oil level as maybe your engine is burning oil, in order to avoid engine break down.

This fix works for 2.7L engine. Worth having your mechanic look at.

Answer
NO: 08-36-99
SUBJECT: Engine Oil Pressure Light Flicker

OVERVIEW:
This bulletin involves adding a terminal/wire/vent to the oil pressure switch connector.

NOTE: THIS BULLETIN APPLIES TO VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A 2.7L ENGINE.

SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
With a hot engine the oil pressure light may be on or flicker on at idle.

DIAGNOSIS:
Verify engine oil pressure as described on page 9-21 of the 1999 Concorde/Intrepid/LHS/300M service manual (Publication No. 81-270-9140). If engine oil pressure is within specification perform the Repair Procedure.

PARTS REQUIRED:
Qty Part No. Description
1 05017800AA Wire Terminal/Vent


REPAIR PROCEDURE:
Raise vehicle on a suitable hoist.
Remove engine oil pressure switch connector from switch.
Remove sealing dart from the empty cavity at the rear of the connector.
Pull terminal locking ring outward from front (switch) side of connector to gain access to terminal locking tabs.
Install wire terminal/vent, p/n 05017800AA, in place of the removed sealing dart. Slide locking ring back into place.
Attach the connector back on the oil pressure switch.
Spot tape the wire/vent to follow the harness towards the top of the engine compartment.

Jaguar s-type restricted performance


I had the same problem. Restricted performance and running rough at 3000 RPM. I have an OBDII code reader and found that the problem was in the air mass flow sensor, which is just after the air filter. I pulled this out and found it was dirty and had butterfly wings in it. The last shop where I had the oil changed replaced the filter for me but put in the wrong size. Close but no cigar. Bought some *** Flow Sensor cleaner at auto store and fixed the problem. Get an OBDII reader with the ability to erase the codes. Comes in real handy.
