SOURCE: Dip stick reading

The design of an oil pressure sensor must be tougher than rocket science; the failure rate is awful high for the simple task it performs. 
This is a common failure and they are generally not terribly expensive to replace. They are supposed to make contact if the pressure falls below ~ 4 PSI, a level that pretty much tells you to STOP and add oil because at that pressure, there could already be some damage to bearing surfaces. The typical range is ~ 30-60 PSI for proper lubrication and (oil) cooling without blowing gaskets sealing the oil channels. 
As you wrote, the engine isn't rattling; just replace the sensor.

SOURCE: yellow dip stick

this is not a problem
what had happen is that the clips might not just clip into place anymore
just pick up a new one and stick it in
you need to get the right one for your car tho as if you don't it may not give the right reading

SOURCE: Why is my engine oil so thin like water and has a

Sounds like fuel in oil obviously. Don't run it until you cure problem !! You may have a an injector leaking down or something. If your fuel is mixing with oil, it's just a matter of time before it seizes if you keep running it. Has it had starting problems lately?

Sometimes the dealership will forget to reset the oil light after changing the oil. It is there to remind you when it is time to get it changed. If you call them and let them know that they forgot to do it, they will probably just walk you through it. Also, check to make sure the put the oil cap back on ticht. It is not the dipstick, but the larger cap on the top of the engine that reads "oil".

Checking oil level in 2004 isuzu rodeo


Unless it is a smoker or leaker, it should not be low after a recent oil change. It is possible that it was not properly filled at the service facility, so that'd be my guess-your oil level should always be between the hash marks on the stick, which is designated with an upper and lower line on the stick.

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.

Have you ever heard of the engine oil reservoir being full and the dipstick reading empty? I just bought an old 1985 toyota pickup truck and it was fine until I had my oil changed. After driving for a...


When your car is low on oil, there is a sensor (sometimes called a switch, as well) that will light up an indicator inside the car to inform you of the low oil level. In some cases, checking the dipstick will show that there is actually oil present, which can be confusing and frustrating because it contradicts the sensor. If this happens to be the case, more than likely the oil pressure switch/sensor is malfunctioning and will need replacing.

MY SATURN 1 SHOWS NO OIL WHEN IT IS COLD BUT WHEN CAR IS TURNED ON IT SHOWS FULL WHY IS THIS


To check engine oil level engine needs to be off, if check while engine running, oil will splash inside oil pan and all over your dip stick giving you bad reading, Check oil level with engine off and add to full mark on oil dip stick. Running engine with low oil will cause major damage to your engine. To check transmission level engine needs to be running at normal engine temp.

When do I add Oil?


Really you should not have to add oil. But to find out have jeep on level surface and use the dip stick to check. Check with car off, pull dip stick out and wipe off and reinsert, Pull back out and read the stick only add if it is low. Do not over fill.
