I think I already answered this once, but if your filter is installed such that the open end is pointed towards the sky, it should have some oil in it when removed. Conversely, it the open end points down the oil will drain out of it while it sits, particularly if you use cheap oil filters which may not have a anti-drain back valve. Do you have an oil pressure gauge on your dash? If you are concerned that the engine may not have proper oil pressure, you could buy or borrow a cheap mechanical oil pressure gauge and test the engine in that way.

Sounds like the coolant temp sensor has a problem. Check the wiring first then try a sensor. They are relatively cheap.

SOURCE: 1998 s10 oil leak

well it wont be the oil pan seal then cause they never leaked that much. I would go back and look at the filter he put on. could be just a problem with it. for the cost of one put another one on and make sure the gasket surfacce is clean down to the metal engine block.

What happened? My Car will not drive forward or reverse, front wheels are now locked, can't even push it.


This is a transmission related issue. If the vehicle starts but will not go in any gear you have an intrernal tranny problem. Will it move at all in neutral? Check and see if the trans fluid is at the proper level. I believe these transmissions are just drain and fill ( no filter change ) during fluid service. If the fluid level is correct and a good color, the internal differential may have come apart causing the lock up situation. If the fluid level is low ( suspect a leak especially after a service ) and low fluid will cause a no shift/drive issue

When your oil not going thouht your oil filter wat is the problems


Does it run? Oil will drain back out of many filters when they sit three months, unless the filter is located such that the open end sit upward to the sky. Do you have a oil pressure gauge? Does it show normal pressure when running?

Check engine light came on, checked oil and it was fine. I was looking at my gauges, and the oil pressure seemed really off. It's normally around 20 at idle which is normal then its normally at 40 when...


it could be as simple as a bad oil pressure, or it could be a bad engine. If the oil pressure was good before the oil change maybe the oil filter might be the problem

I have a 2004 Dodge Durango 4.7. About 3 months ago I replaced the oil pump, but believe it was the oil pick up valve that was the problem. 2 days ago, the engine began knocking loudly the entire time it...


Try using a MOPAR oil filter...These cheap after market filters are allowing the oil to drip down into the pan and there is none in the top of the motor on cold starts.

My crystler concord just got an oil change 2 to 3 weeks ago and i changed the oil filter, but the oil level is already low, what does that mean?


Does the car emit blue smoke from the exhaust when driving? If so, either the piston rings or valve seals could be bad (expensive repair). The PCV valve could also be bad. The last reason (but no blue smoke) might be a physical oil leak due to a loose oil filter, drain plug, leaking oil pressure sensor, or worn crankshaft seal. Good luck!

1999 chevy malibu runs good and sporadically dies when driving


When does it shut off? Need more information to help. I had a similar problem, but it would happen when it was hot outside and the fuel was less than 3/4 a tank. It ended up that someone had put moth balls in my fuel tank and it was gumming up the fuel pump.

Oil pressure drops to 0 at idle


OOO not good sounds like some of the head gasket got stuck somewhere, or the gauge or sender is bad or got knocked around when repairing the head gasket. I would check that first. If that checks out will need to drop the pan to see if something got stuck in the pickup tube,might as well change the pump while you are there. Or worst case some thing wrong with gasket job impeading oil flow back to bottom of the engine. Was the oil and filter changed ?if so pull out filter and see if an chunks are stuck in it now. And change oil and filter again. Sorry that was out of order I had a long day
