Engine starts and stops ticking

Sounds like oil pressure problems to me. Check to make sure your oil level is correct. If the oil level is OK get the engine checked by a professional.

1988 Honda accord oil warning light on, does not turn off. Oil level is fine. what causes the light to come on?

The oil pressure switch causes it to turn on when there is no oil pressure. There is oil you say, so you need to check if there is oil pressure when you start the engine. Simplest test even without gauges is to remove pressure switch and start engine briefly and turn it off. If you have oil pressure you will have oil shooting out of the switch hole. Replace switch. If you dont have check iol pump.

I have a 2007 gmc sierra slt, been having oil consumption issues but tonight, I drive to my office, everythig is good, get out go in office, left it running, 5 minutes max, come back out, check engine...

Usually, when this happens, it means your Oil Pressure Sending Unit has gone haywire. Since it runs fine and seems to have no problems, I would first check this out.
It, I beleive, is either located on the back of the block, down around the distributer, or near the oil filter housing somewhere. I am not sure of the exact location, sorry.

I hope this helps!

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash

Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

I've been experincing high oil pressure when i start my car then the oil pressure drops to normal after a couple of minutes, today it acted like it didn't want to start like it was bound up what would...

A high oil pressure reading at startup is completely normal until the oil reaches operating temperature it is much thicker. However, if you've added any type of oil treatment additives you may have overdone it and have to change your oil. Thank you, Dana

Will start then dies

On the regals they have a ceramic resistor on the passanger side under the fender. It heats up and over time it tends to brake and the wire inside tends to rust away. The fuel pumps run in 2 different speeds. Had the same problem. Dealer only part yet the car would run and you would think it was the fuel pump. Turn the key it kicks on then start and dies out. Ceramic on the pass side would need replaced. It is white about 2-3 inches long or so held on with 2 bolts i do believe. Ill find a bulliten i found online to help me diagnos the problem. :) hopefully this helps someone out instead of spendin $$$ that ya cant afford with the recession eh?

Chevy 4.3 fuel prombems..?

I'd be replacing oil sender. GM have used oil pressure switch as a safety shut-off to fuel pump, when oil pressure drops off, as it would in a collision, due to engine stall.
