Better have her take it to a shop before its too late. Could be the wrong oil or filter, could be sludge, could be worn bearings or journals, could be oil pump clogged up or weak. Could be nothing, just cold. A good running engine is worth an early diagnosis.

The battery may have the volts but the cranking Amps may be low in the battery(light will dim real low when trying to start). If the battery cranking Amps are good then the alternator is charging the battery.
If that is all good then the starter motor may need replacing

Hi! My 1999 Cadillac Deville for about 2 weeks started messaging low refrig-ac-off. Check engine light on!.


When you change your oil is up to you,you set the
months & miles you go. Any car with a reminder
for oil is just a gadget

You were told that your low on a/c refrigerant by the
message

Now the check light related or not has to be addressed,
by checking for codes & diagnosing the effected system

Your a/c system needs repair,not added to, only to leak out
& polute the atmosphere

Low oil pressure on 08 gmc seirra


With fuel injection if the pressure goes to low the fuel pump will stop and the lifters will get noisy.If you are seeing 10 lbs hot at idle I wouldn't worry to much.
If you have a high mileage vehicle and live in a warm climate,go for 20w50 oil at your next oil change,some use straight 40w oil to help oil pressure on worn engines.

My brother bought Mitsubishi Strada last November 2010.Upon testing,he noted the engine not running smoothly and the speed acceleration is very low.In fact,it can only reach 100km/h max.He complained it to...


My problem with my strada is that sudden lose of power.. The RPM can only go as much as 2,000 then dies.. But after restarting it, it goes back to normal..

I jad it diagnosed but there was no fault or check engine results.. This is bothering me.

Bought the envoy w/ 70,000 miles, fresh oil change. @ 74,000 miles it was 1.5 qrts low, put in 5w30, checked oil 2 weeks later it was 1 qrt low. do not see smoke or any leaking.


I just bought a 2005 envoy too. I read in the manual that the 4.6 6 cyl engine needs 7 qts total. 2 Over the normal oil change. Is it possible it wasn't low to start? I noticed when Walmart changed the oil they charged extra for the change because it needed the two extra qts. However my dip stick has oil over the full mark. Seemed strange but I haven't had any leaks and after 3k mile no change in level. Make sure you had the correct about the first time.

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....
