Check oil light stays on


Your vehicle may have an "oil level" sensor built into the oil pan. If so, and the sensor is bad, the dash will constantly tell you that the engine needs more oil even if it does not. Checking the oil with the dipstick, a minute after the engine has been turned off on level ground is always the best way to check your oil. Try scanning the vehicles computer systems to see if there are any fault codes. The warning light may also be on a timer that just needs to be reset. The "Check Oil" light should be separate from the engine oil pressure warning light. As long as the engine oil pressure light stays off, you should be ok. Checking the oil pressure with a manual gauge would be a good idea as well.

I replaced my water pump in my 1999 gmc yukon my check gauge light stayed on and temp gauge stayed over to hot side. can i reset it?


Not exactly.
The check gauge warning light is on because the temp gauge is reading hot.
Does the temp gauge read hot as soon as you turn the key switch on, or not until the engine as run for a few minutes ?
If it reads hot without the engine being started, there may be a short in the wiring or the sensor may have failed.

Hello again, I had the oil changed this past Saturday drove for 700 miles and oil pressure stayed the same...80psi.....now the engine light has come on and the computer is showing that it still needs to be...


If the check engine light is on (and not flashing) simply take it to one of the various auto parts chain stores that offer free scanning. That will tell you why the light is on and might even lead to a repair.
As for oil pressure gauge. It could be a bad sending unit, bad gauge itself, or sometimes a broken wire. A competent mechanic will have a mechanical oil pressure gauge to verify what the real reading is.
The check engine light and oil pressure gauge reading may or may not be related.

The engine light comes on, upon checking manual it says that if I used different fuel this may occur or if the gas cap was put on improperly. All gauges and functions seem to be in order and the vehicle is...


you need to take the vehicle to a commercial auto parts store (like advance, pep boys, auto zone) and have the engine computer scanned-they do it for free, and will provide a code (i.e. 'P0171')-this will supply evidence of your issue, whatever it is. You could then google the code or come back on here, lots of people are happy to help if you can provide this information.

2000 gmc sierra 1500 for last month check engine light stays on - previously, for several months, the fuel gauge would (still does some) not work when started up (whether warm or cold) until I put it back...


have vehicle scanned most auto stores offer this service for free the trouble code will give u a start point towards correcting that problem as to the gauge sounds like a different problem from check engine possible connected but doubt it check the wiring up under dash around back of gauge for loose or damaged wire[s] if wires good use a meter and test gauge itself for possible short

You have two pumps,I guess you know that ,if you already did one. Did you check fuel pressure at the rail and check out the electronic pressure regulator? What codes are coming up and do they stay set?

Just because the gauges say every thing is ok does nor mean any thing take it to a shop and have them put it on a scanner there is a reason the light is on probably a sensor they can tell you which one it is usually an oxygen sensor

The check engine light stays on. When I connect the computer it says it is the gas cap or the EGR. I put a new gas cap on. Check engin light stays on. How difficult is it to replace the EGR valve?


its easy too replace but you need too reset your cmputer first too see if the light stays out before you go and buy the egr valve
disconnect the pos side of the battery for 5 min that will reset the computer,if the light comes back on then get the egr valve then you will have too reset it again

Engine light on/Oil Gauge on stays on high


Any waranties left? Is oil full? Any noises from engine? Did you put a mechanical gauge on it and check "real" oil pressure? (I would not drive it 'till I was sure about actual oil pressure!!)
