NO , LOW OIL WILL NOT MAKE THE ENGINE RACE, BUT A VACUM LEAK OR A BAD IDLE AIR CONTROL MOTOR WILL. TAKE IT TO A TECHNICAN THAT YOU TRUST TO BE CHECKED. MAKE THEM EXPLAIN WHAT THE ARE DOING AND WHY

SOURCE: Check engine light after oil change

If it is the service engine light, go to Auto Zone and they will put a scanner on it for free and diagnose the code. I may have fixed the same problem with my daughter's 2004 Dodge Stratus 2.7L V-6 a few months ago. Is it the "Oil Pressure Light" or the service engine light? My daughter's car had a sporadic low oil pressure light. Checking the actual oil pressure is more work, so I guessed it was the Oil Pressure sending unit and it was. When I took it off it the electrical connection was soaked in oil due to some internal failure. I put a new oil pressure sending unit on and the oil pressure light has not come back on.

If you remove the wire connector and there is no oil on anything, try sparying it with electrical parts cleaner and putting it back together. If the oil light is still on you will need to replace the sending unit.

It is an easy job, but it must be done from the underside of the engine in a tight space. Make sure the enginer is cool because the sending unit is close to the exhaust. There is an aluminum heat shield with three (3) bolts that needs to be removed and is most of the work. You will need to plug the hole with a clean rag or wait for the next oil change to do the job and replace it after you drain the oil.

If the easy steps above do not solve the problem then you may have bigger trouble like a bad oil pump, or worse yet, a really worn out engine that needs a rebuild.

Just last week, I has a SEL scanned at Auto Zone and it turned out to be the Engine Coolant Temperatuere Sensor. I removed the electrical connection and sprayed it with electric parts cleaner and put it back together. No light since then. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Check engine light

RE: Check Engine Light

The check engine light may come on for several reasons
.
It is not necessary to worry as it may be as simple as putting the gas cap on without fully clicking it shut!. If this is the case it will go away by itself in about a week at most!

You can take your car to an auto parts store to have them run a diagnostic (Some will do this for free).

If your car is running fine, re-tighten the gas cap, give it a week or have it diagnosed if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

SOURCE: check engine light on diagnostics say rpm's too

That would be your rev limiter or your map sensor.

The lught can be reset with an OBDII scanner. Most auto parts places like Advance or Autozone will read and clear the code for free.

Head torque for a 2007 Kia Spectra


All Kia Spectras use the 2.0L 4 cylinder engine, and that engine has two different size cylinder head bolts that each require their own torque spec. Use the following torque sequence (see picture) and tighten them down in three steps. You will need a torque angle gauge or some way of knowing how far you've tightened the bolt for steps 2 & 3.

Apply a light coat of engine oil on the threads and under the heads of the bolts before torqueing.

M10 bolts: First step = 16.6*19.5 lb-ft, second step = Turn another 60-65 degrees, 3rd step = Turn another 60-65 degrees

M12 bolts: First step = 20.3-23.1 lb-ft, second step = Turn another 60-65 degrees, 3rd step = Turn another 60-65 degrees

I have a possible major issue My 2006.5/2007 Kia Optima Please Help its throwing up a P0011 Code Meaning Advanced Camshaft Timing?


If the engine makes rattling noise too then your timing chain tensioner may need to be checked. Slacked chain will alter camshaft timing. Check timing marks to confirm that the chain has not jumped one or two sprocket teeth.

1997 ford contour 4 cylinder transmission shift real hard transmission oil level is to much overdrive light flashes sometimes ,aLso when its not shifting right it sounds like the motOr is racing


the racing you hear is most likely a slipping in the transmission. in terms you may understand is this,you're giving the car gas,but the gas does'nt work,you hear the engine roaring,but slow motion?if this is the case,you may need a transmission fluid filter and fluid change,this may help.depending on how long the problems been going on. 3.0 engines are really good motors.but the transmissions behind the engine demand clean fluid,filter. is your check engine light on? the hard shift tells me somethings wrong already.you may only have a bad speed sensor. suggest you move towards the speed sensor. if the chck engn lghts on. do what i described above. if not,no light on,suggest you reset your computer by disconnecting the positive cable from your battery for 10minutes.this will reset the whole system and keep in mind that any existing problems will keep arising. good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.com

My 2007 Honda pilot did the same thing. I took the above advice regarding the oil condition (mine was obviously poor, although I change it every 3 mos) and had it changed immediately. The engine light, VSA light, and the triangle with ! all cleared and the vehicle began to run properly again. No problems since. Thank you to Shawn Bruns!!

Check oil light is on and the car is making noises , I just got a oil change one month ago.


May be the incorrect oil , low on oil you may have an oil pressure problem. Have the vehicle diagnosed by a
certified repair shop. Its a 16 yr old car have, the techn do an oil pressure check,check out sending unit and its circuitry . Worse case new engine or partial engine rebuild( pump, cam and crank bearings).
Best case ,low on oil .

Is there an low oil pressure automatic engine shut


Ouch. This one doesn't sound good Adrienne. Sorry. No automatic shutdown for low oil unfortunately. 1.25 qt of oil isn't enough. Sure sounds like a seized engine.
