SOURCE: I have a 1995 Chevy Lumina with the ''Low Oil'' light on.

may be the oil sending unit is bad
may be the oil pump
is there any noise in the engine?
have the oil pressure check at a repair shop to make sure you have enough oil pressure
if it's ok then have the shop replace the switch while they have the old one out to check the pressure

SOURCE: oil light comes on upon

You have a faulty oil sending unit. The oil sending unit senses how much oil pressure is in the car's engine, and when it is faulty, Will trigger the light. When you hit the brakes the oil in the engine will go forward/backward and that causes a fluctuation in the pressure, which causes the faulty oil sending switch to trigger the oil light. Replace the oil sending unit switch and you will be fine.

I've got an opel kadett cub 1991 model,it seems to struggle in a hill and when its hot it switches its self,and I have to wait for it to cool down and start it again. What might be the problem

check the timing, improper would cause loss of power and relate to heating. make sure you do not have a brake dragging. Coils (spark generator) often quit when they get hot if going bad. sometimes you can feel if it is heating up excessively by touching it after it is on for awhile. check coolant, oil, and compression for leakage or mixing= head gasket problem.

Opel kadett 1995 engin light comes on but goes off afte some time

Go to your local parts house. They have a free service to hook up to the access cable and read the code that is causing the problem. That needs to be attended to as it more than likely will cause failure creating a bigger problem. They can tell you how to fix it as well. Some even will print it out or you.

Opel kadett 160is 1995 engin light comes on but goes off afte some time

Why would you replace all that, was the car missing or running bad..Sounds like a possible oxygen sensor, after it gets warm then it starts working correctly, or a maf sensor maybe the cone filter is interfering with the readings from it

I changed my engine block and replaced the rings and bearings but the car is smoking and using oil

  • Smoke and abnormal oil use means the car is burning oil.

    If you get smoke when accelerating hard (eg from rest or in high gear when overtaking) it means the oil is getting past the piston rings which indicates worn bores, pistons and/or piston rings.

    If the smoke appears after an over-run* it points to worn valve guides, valves or faulty valve stem seals.

    *over run = for example when you descend a hill in gear but with foot off the accelerator. The engine is acting as a kind of brake. The smoke billows out when you accelerate.
