Oil pressure switch is bad. Consider a replacement fast before you loose your engine.

Ive got oil in the car but the oil light keeps comeing on and off


The oil light indicates low oil PRESSURE, not oil VOLUME.
BUT, I have had an oil pressure sending unit go bad on me before, indicating low oil pressure while in fact oil pressure was fine.
If your oil fill cap (where oil is added to engine) is on a valve cover, remove cap while engine is running. If you get an oil mist or oil spray out of it, or if you can see oil spraying when looking down hole (use a flashlight), then you have oil pressure, and the oil light sending unit probably is bad and needs replacing.

I have oil pouring out of the sensor above the oil filter


This is probably the oil pressure switch (or pressure sender,if you have an oil pressure guage).Two of my Chrysler products have done this.Replace the sensor, and if it's not too hard to get at,take the connector apart and clean it(or clean it out with spray silcone).

I have a 98 s10 2.2 and the oil pressure gage goes up and down real bad and a service engine light comes on sometimes but the oil is full what do i need to do


One of two possibilities - Check for loose wires at oil pressure sending unit (switch that is screwed into block) If wires are tight, unscrew oil pressure switch and spray clean it with carb cleaner (the bottom part that screws into engine)

The oil pressure gage is reading zero and the oil is full. How can I tell if it is the gage or the oil pump?


It is quite possible that the Oil pressure guage is faulty or else with a zero reading of the oil pressure the engine would have packed out. So removing the valve door will confirm if there is oil flow and confirm the guage. You can also remove the line to the guage and connect the line to a bottle, when the engine starts up the oil pressure will be displayed with a good pressure spray.... but be careful not be spray it all over with a loose joint.

Car will start,run for two good seconds and then die.can fuel filter be blown out? dont have the lunch money to get new one at the time.


no, its not a filter issue. Most likely a fuel pump issue. Spray brake cleaner to see ifit will run while spraying sparingly. If it keeps running then the fuel pump failed.

Oil leakage


The oil pressure release valve is located behind a large 3/4 lug on the oil pump, if you raise your vehicle and locate the oil filter, look up and to the right of the pressure sender switch, this nut should face to the rear of the of the car, undo it but have a cloth handy as oil will spill quite heavy from this once removed. Inside there will be a spring, remove the spring and to follow will be the valve, if the valve has a problem feed then you will have some trouble removing. Use a scribe to remove along with some (INOX) spray, spray it into the location and leave it for about 20 mins.
