The change oil light is its own issue. Not connected with the other lights. The traction light could be on because the engine is not running right. So the traction control is disabled.
You need to get the engine computer scanned for trouble codes to find out why the engine is running rough. Remember codes are only a guide for checking and testing, not a direct command to replace parts.

1996 jeep wont stay started and oil pressure gauge goes up and down


hot or cold engine , or both.?
the oil pressure will be in direct ratio to engine rpm. slow low, fast high
due to the oil pump connection to engine crankshaft.

stalls.: can be caused by 50 things, or just 4 in physics.
the EGR valve (if you have one, no engine stated)
can stick open and stall any engine, and in fact LOVES to. clean it.
1: list 12vdc to EFI. (spark and fuel brain) dash lights dim?
2: lost compression hot, ? compression tests.
3: lost spark, do spark tests. and timing, checks.
4: bad fueling, too much if floods, and misfires and stalls.
too little fuel, it starves and dies.

the 1 free test, is can you save the stall with a fast right foot.

we do the tests. avoiding those 50 guesses....
each tests are simple and the tools dirt cheap .

Oil light comes on, loses power, stalls, restarts but engine very rough, oil level is fine but oil is very hot, smokes


Check for trouble codes. Smoke out where? out the exhaust? Do a compression test to check internal mechanical condition. Low compression would likely mean expensive engine repairs, no easy fixes. If the oil light comes on well before the engine loses power, have the oil pressure tested on a gauge. Low oil pressure could be a bad oil pump, worn crankshaft bearings, or a blockage in the oil passages throughout the engine, or a clogged pick-up tube and screen in the crankcase. How long do you want to keep whipping that achieva, Mark? Might be time to look for another pony !

1999 jaguar xk8 no compression so they say car wont start but started fine the night before,what are the signs of compression problem


If there is low or no compression the starter motor will spin
the engine over really fast. Will sound different than normal.
And there will be little or no pressure of exhaust at the tail pipe.

Check engine light is on and ts light is on and a key light ison


For the check engine light you will need to have the codes pulled to determine the issue. TS light I am assuming is the traction control and the key icon light is for the coded key / security system.

My Service ABS< stability and traction control,engine lights all are on and engine oil shows nothing on stick about 1000 miles after oil change and when I put gas in my vehicle it takes a while before...


First, the abs/traction control light is usually attributed to the abs module not receiving a speed signal from one or more wheels.

Second, if you lose less than one quart per 1000 mi. traveled, I read that this is normal. But yours is not normal. Top off the oil with the recommended viscosity.

Losing oil


Check the spark plugs for signs of oil burning, have a compression or better, a leakdown test done. Possible rings were incorrectly installed. or, cylinder walls were not refinished properly.

Upgraded 456 gears on my Avalanche now having warning lights on


rubbish
the abs sensors stopped wheels not fast spinning wheels
when there is no signal from the rotor the abs kicks in and releases he brake pressure to that wheel/s allowing them to turn to give the driver steering control
as the abs and traction control use the same wheel sensor , the traction could detect a fast spinning wheel and take action to control it
you have upgraded the final drive ration to 4.56 from standard which will be 3 point something which will make the engine rev higher to get the same speed
and that could be where the problem is coming from as there is a connection between the engine rpms and the road speed and the preset parameters may be not reading the new settings from the new diff ratio
putting on the lights and dropping power

2001 olds ABS and traction control sensor issue


An ABS sensor DOES affect the traction control system. Traction control uses these sensors to determine if a wheel is losing traction. A bad sensor will cause both the ABS and TRACTION lights to come on.
The CHECK ENGINE light however is going to be a seperate problem.
