SOURCE: 98 altima oil light on and off oil level fine car restarted and

If oil pressure is LOW this vehicle has a safety feature that will prevent vehicle from starting.(check oil level before you start) Now what I wan't you to do is to have the oil pressure switch checked or changed. This may be the reason why this vehicle is not starting or it can also be that the actual oil pressure is low. To check the oil pressure of the vehicle you will need an oil pressure guage. Remove the oil pressure switch and connect guage to oil pressure hole and check oil pressure while cranking vehicle.Some pressure testers can be connected to oil filter housing either is fine. If this vehicle has low oil pressure the reasons for that are bad oil pump, clogged oil pump pick up(from lack of oil change/poor mantainence) or bad connecting rod and main bearings but this usually have a warning from before (the engine will sound loud by knocking /clicking-tapping noise) It this was happening you may need to rebuild this engine or replace it. Good luck and Thanks for using FIX YA

SOURCE: Car stalls when oil pressure drops...20 minutes to restart

No it is a fail safe. When your oil pressure drops below (on most cars) 30 psi your computer will shut your fuel pump down until you either let it sit for a while and it resets or until oil pressure builds again. Sorry!

I have a 2003 Harley Davidson edition F 150 that when you drive it consistently for greater than 15 to 20 minutes and come to a stop dies


I recommend you hook up a scanner and view the data coming off the tps, map, etc. while driving. I'm thinking the tps may be going out and does not drop properly when you take your foot off the pedal. The pcm may not be engaging the iac until the truck dies and is restarted. You need live data to solve this problem.

1999 VW Jetta- all dash lights (ABS, Brake, Airbag, Check Engine) went on and then the car died. It restarted when I had a jump but only made it 1 mile before dying again. Is it the alternator?


Sure is, the regulator in the alternator went out. You can test this by starting the car and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running. If the car dies, you have a bad alternator.

a bad crank sensor causes a car to shut down while driving down road. and will not start back up for about 10 minutes. have car scanned to read the problem codes. any auto parts stores will scan for free.
