I have a Ford Harley davideson pickup truck.The oil dipstick has no oil on it.Can the cpm pickup that there's no oil and wont start,also security light flashes.


Hello Corey,
I am not a motor mechanic, but from my limited knowledge....
If you cannot see oil on the end of the oil dipstick then your engine *desperately* needs more oil added.
A 5 litre / 1 gallon bottle of oil costs only a handful of dollars.
An engine that siezes cost hundreds or thousands of dollars.
If your pickup truck still starts, I suggest you take it to the nearest motor mechanic, as soon as possible.

There is a puddle of oil in the drive where I park my 2001 Pontiac Montano. Five days ago added oil; while driving today the dash light came on and read 'low engine oil'.


An oil leak can be from almost anywhere. One good place to start is to make sure your oil filter is tight. Oil pressure sending units do go bad and can leak a good amount of oil. Then there is the rear main seal that sometimes leaks and of coarse the oil pan. The best thing to do is to raise the front of the car up and put it on stands, start the engine and slide under to see where its actually leaking.

Subaru forester check engine light came on. Found oil low, added oil, check engine light still on. Is this normal? How does the light turn off?


no not nornal,you need to get it plugged in to a diagnostic computer to see which sensor set it off it means you have something that needs to be looked at,low oil could be a coincidence

Driving down highway no signs of touble, totally stopped


a bad cam sensor will definitely make an engine not fire. I would start with replacing that.if that doesnt help, then look into the oil pressure sensor or maybe the oil pump? I know some cars have a safety circuit that disables the ignition if the pressure gets too low.

Audi 1.8T sport Auto (2001) heavy smoke and engine buring smell


The engine could be shot, oil is being burnt off by the actions of being sucked into the bores via worn piston rings then ejected out of the exhaust

If you sent the car in for an MOT and a Service I would ask the garage what they did to it as the car would have failed on its emissions test if that much oil was coming out .

It could have been a fault on the oil pump or lack of oil in the first instance and maybe an overfill on the service

You paid your money now go back for redress

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
