Question about 2001 Nissan Altima
Oil light usually indicates LOW oil pressure.. Which will kill your engi ne and cause very expense repairs. FIRST Check oil level, If the level is good. You need to find out if the engine really has low oil pressure. A new oil pressure switch is about $8.00 you might start there. If the light still comes on its a good posibilty your car has bad oil pres.. To find out for sure you will need to install a Pressure guage and check the actual pressure.. If the Oil Level is good and you still have low oil pressure The engine has internal wear or damage.. You should not drive it till you fix the low pressure problem. rebuild or replace engine. The intermittant "jerking" can be unrelated to the oil pres problem or you engine is going away because of the pressure problem.
