If it has seized then it would be cheaper to buy a new engine than repairing.

My 07 tahoe has no oil pressure ive drove it 10 mile to get homeit still runs good but still not showing any oil pressure


Hello, if your engine did not have oil pressure , I doubt you could drive it ten miles. I think you should check your oil pressure with an auxiliary pressure gauge. More than likely you might only need a new oil sending unit.

I cannot turn my crankshaft pulley on my hummer h3


Bad, bad, and bad. You can try a large breaker bar with a really long cheater bar, like 6' long, as a last resort... but it sounds like the engine is locked up because the main bearings have failed and welded themselves onto the crankshaft. It only takes one siezed bearing to lock up an engine. You could conceivably drop the oilpan and see if you can find the siezed one and replace just it, but really an engine rebuild is in order. Don't forget a new oil pump. Sorry.

Lexus rx300 engine


Sorry... but, it's too late if, in fact, the engine has ceased because of insufficient oil. Even if you could "unlock" the engine, the engine isn't going to be much good to you.. If you've ran it out of oil until it quits or ceases, there are too many bearings that have been abused and are no longer any good. Bottom line is that you need to have your engine rebuilt.. or you will need to buy a new engine. No matter which, we're talking lots of money. Of course, it will depend on the value of the car as to whether you want to put this kind of money into it. Good luck.

1993 chevy caprice classic wagon 5.0 8 cylinder hads a problem with engine shutting off with in seconds after start ! i did check for vapor lock in gas line, had new spark plugs replace, new fule...


Think the oil pressure switch keeps the fuel pump running once started. Suggest replacing Oil pressure switch. And no it won't effect oil pressure reading when it goes bad. The switch is a safety device. When you roll it over and the oil pressure drops the switch cuts off the fuel pump. Neat huh? Need some good feedback Thanks!

2004 Dodge Intrepid oil light stays on - will not go off.


have you checked the oil level in the engine on the dipstick? if so and the oil levels full, you may have a bad oil pump! do not drive or run engine until you have a mechanic to looh at it to determine it as a a bad oil pump. running the motor with a bad oil pump will damage your motor or even lock the motor up!hope this helps you and thank you for choosing fixya.com

Oil light has been comming off and on for a few days. check oil levels they are fine. noise like a dddddddd and happens more when push on gas. Mechanic said the engine was not getting any oil pressure, he...


those cars are known for intake gasket leak and if it leak, the coolant will some time leak into the engine oil. when the water and oil mix the valve lifter will colapse then there is noise.
yes, you need to get another opinion to see if there is just the valve lifters. good luck!

I suspect you have had an oil pump failure. To get at the rotory gear oil pump you will have to drop the oil pan. After you take the pan off, ( having drained the oil the oil pump is what the oil pick up line leads into. That pick up assy. is a round shaped disc with a screen inside it. Clean the screen first then the oil pump. Install new oil pan gasket on reassembly. Hope that helps you. Please let me know.

Hopefully the engine was not damaged when the pump broke. If it was you may need a complete engine rebuild, MAYBE.
