SOURCE: Will the check engine light come on if an oil

No the check engine light is only for emissions issues. If the oil change is very overdue (10000 miles overdue) then that can cause emissions problems and the check engine light.

SOURCE: Just got my alternator replaced now my engine is

Knocking should not have anything to do with an alternator replacement. You can't get a diagnosis on line, as we can't hear your knock. Bring it somewhere.

SOURCE: my bmw 520d 2008 is not accelerating, it only can move up to 20 miles, but its not moving today.it was saying service overdue[ which engine oil needs to change] |Does that causing the problem?

It would have gone into "limp home mode" Should have gone for diagnosis ASAP. Oil change will not fix it. You need to have the car scanned for fault codes.

Oil light flashing


It likely means that you are low on oil and it is long overdue for an oil change. If you don't, you will be changing your engine.

I have a 1999 Ford Explorer. On the way home from work, the oil gauge suddenly started bouncing all over the place. What could be causing this?


definitely change it as soon as possible. maintaining your vehicle is important. the engine wears down faster without proper oil. Also just because it has oil doesn't mean its ok. old oil carries metal shaving from your engine. that's why you need to change it regularly.

If I need a oil change will my car crank?


That all depends on how far overdue your car is for an oil change! If it is so badly overdue for an oil change that the engine has seized-up, it won't crank. If it is just due (or overdue) for an oil change and no engine damage has occurred yet, it will not have any effect on whether the engine cranks.

Could oil light come on if you are way overdue on oil change?


Yes - most cars will consume oil during normal operation. If you're way overdue your car may have consumed enough that it's tripping the low-oil light. At least check the level and top it off, but you really need to change it.

Engine blew after oil change, no oil lost


did you notice any bearing noises when you started it after the oil change and before the oil reached all the bearings? how many miles? if he sues have the oil pump tested to see if it pumps or the intake screen is plugged with sludge, that is the common cause i have seen.

Oil pressure light


Oils in long over due service forms **** which can't be circulated properly under normal oil pump pressure causing Crank shaft or cam shaft bearing recieve the lubricant quite late. The said bearings could be damaged.

For the light, the oil pressure switch could have accummulated some **** which is making it malfunction.

Black oil


Possible scenarios

1. Oil never changed by shop.

2. Old oil was extremely dirty and when changed (way overdue) the sludge in engine and residual oil darkened the clean oil making it look dirty. If its an issue to you some places offer a motor oil flush service.
