My engine in my 2003 nissan sentra shut down while driving home.When i try starting the car it will catch but wont turn on and the brake light and oil light are stuck on.


hi
check the engine oil.
if there was no oil left in the engine then good chance of engine seizing.
do not carry on starting the engine as you will bend the valves.

Chrysler 300m oil light came on while driving and the engine then shut down. the oil light is still on the dash and the car wont start. turns over fine just dont run


Are you SURE that it was Oil Light then Engine Shut off? There is not a ENGINE SHUT OFF if the light comes on that I am aware of and I have worked on quite a few 300's.

I would be trying to start the vehicle by:
Verify Fuel Pressure
Spray Starting Fluid in the Intake and see if it starts then
Are you sure there is Spark?
CRANKSHAFT SENSOR went bad

Auto shut down relay


Oil Light comes on when the Pressure drops below a certain amount. If I was a betting man, I would tell you to test your CRANK SHAFT SENSOR.

It shut off while driving, no warning, no beep no light it just shut down and won't start. I took the air intake hoses off and found oil in there...is this a turbo problem and can it be rebuilt?


Turbo wont cause it not to start. Oil in induction hoses is normal at higher mileage and does not mean needs a turbo again. If turbo sprayed out oil whilst driving you would know about it....masses of smoke from exhaust and unconrtollable engine rpm. Sounds more like a failed CPS (crank sensor) or electrical issue.

What will cause a truck to lose all oil pressure and the engine to shut off while driving down the road?


If wires came off oil pressure switch or if switch went bad, it would shut down truck immediately. Your oil pressure switch performs 2 functions; oil pressure to gauge.light and it's also a safety feature that if you're in an accident or rollover, when oil pressure drops it shuts off power to fuel pump. I'd start there. The reverse is also a possibility, if fuel pump fails, truck shuts down = no oil pressure.

Car wont start


when you press the brake pedal the brake master cylinder vacuum booster takes vacuum away from the engine and that slows the idle speed just enough to trigger the low pressure oil light. Pull the oil pressure sending unit out and hook up an oil pressure test gage, if the pressure is above 15 PSI hot engine idle in drive replace the oil pressure sending unit.
