does it go tick tick tick tick and when it warms up it stops or goes quiet?
its your lifters not getting enough oil
when u change your oil it will stop till that oil gets worn out
you will have to replace the lifters or it can also be a slack oil pump not pumping oil around the engine like it should

You have to reset the message. The instructions are in the owner's manual (I have to do this myself every time I get an oil change.) You put the car into accessory and then scroll through the menu options. It's easy.

If your sending unit is one wire, unhook it from the sender and place a jumper wire from wire to ground. Turn ign on, gauge should pep high PSI. Two wire plug, place jumper between contacts of wires (unplugged). Same thing. What this does is isolate the gauge. If gauge pegs on test, replace sender. If it does it again with new sender, it's the pump. But it's probably the sender.

Hi hope I can help.
You can remove the spark plugs and inspect the cylinders.
Look and see if any fluids are in the cylinders.
Then you can preform a compression test.
If you find a cylinder with low compression you have a bad head gasket.
If compression is good , your intake gasket has failed.
hope this helps.
please leave feed back
