    Thank you and a sending unit is relatively inexpensive? Or could it be an oil sensor?

Assuming the oil level is full the answer is yes.
Have the pressure tested with a mechanical gauge. You may need to just replace the sending unit but it's best to check. If engine makes any tapping noises when light is on do not drive it till it has been checked out.

    Unless equipped with an oil level indicator, the sender and sensor are the same part, just different term (like a driveshaft is actually called a propeller shaft)

    PS: usually less than $30

2004 Impala Dashboard lights all come on while driving. It appears as if the computer is rebooting. Repeated searches by the dealer since we bought the care in 2004 claim that nothing is showing up


the dealer's hands are tied because there is no official diagnostic procedure for intermittent problems. I've dealt with this particular problem several times and the result has always been the same; bad instrument cluster. there is always a chance that it could be a bad connection at the cluster harness or a bad ground, but although I always check for those things it turns out that the cluster gets replaced and the problem goes away.

My oil smells like gas and i can literally watch gas gauge fall


Stop using it now

If you allow much fuel at all into the oil you
will seize up the motor from lack of lubrication

Could be a leaking injector or something more
serious or several problems causing the pcm to
add fuel you shouldn't need,like vacuum leaks
almost anywhere as well as injector issues

Does the oil light go on to tell you there is no oil left Kia sedona 2011


Its suppose to be a warning light but is not always the case.It depends on how far or long you drive it after the warning light comes on.

2002 malibu runs hot.


Sounds like you have a faulty head gasket or maybe a cracked head.This can cause overheating and the check engine light to come on.The code for the o2 sensor is probably caused by coolant getting into the exhaust system and coating the sensor.The coolant fan may work but it cannot remove enough heat from the rad to make the engine cool off.Try some engine coolant stop leak to see if it will help.This maybe only a temperary fix.Let me know if you need more.MOE

I have a 2002 Kia Sedona. The check engine light


YOU NEED TO SCAN IT.TO SEE WHAT CODE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS COMING UP WITH.IT COULD BE THE TORQUE CONVERTER ON TRANSMISSION REMAINING LOCK UP OR MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR.IF YOU REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP.YOUR FUEL FILTER WILL CAUSE THE SAME PROBLEM IF ITS STOPPED UP.

KIa Mentor engine light


if the light came on it could be a fluid level warning. In most models today they don't have a light or gauge for the levels. I would check this first. you mention a hesitation, this could be as simple as changing the fuel filter or a faulty O2 sensor. Best bet is ti have a diagnostic scan done to find out if there is an active code present in your ECM.please rate this.....thanks
