SOURCE: 2002 Jeep Liberty oil pressure light comes on in cold

Chrysler mounted the oil sensing unit on these motors directly above the oil filter. It is very easy to accidently hook the sensing unit with the oil filter wrench and crack or break it. For anyone whose oil light problem developed right after an oil change, this may be the problem. To change the unit, pry up the plastic retaining clip with a screw driver and unplug the wire harness. If the plastic part of the sensor is broken, (or if you break it to facilitate easy removal), you can remove the sensor with a 27mm socket. Once you have removed it, use a piece of CLEAN pipe cleaner to insure the hole isn't plugged with sludge which could also cause the oil light to come on. Screw in the new unit finger tight, then snug up with a WRENCH. You cannot use the socket to tighten it as it would damage the plastic part of the new sensor. Plug the wire harness back on, then start the engine to make sure it doesn't leak oil around the new unit.

There are way too many possibilities for us to try to start to diagnose your car. . Id check all fuses and fusible links if I were you., Body shops often jump start cars that are in their shops for long periods of time, Jump starting can cause alot of issues.

SOURCE: Car won't move

It would appear that your CV joints are worn out completely, and you are going to have to replace them, or the whole half-shaft. When you hear those funny noises, that is your car talking to you... the only way it can, and you have to fix those noises ASAP.

Wiggle the keys around when the car is running and see if you can repeat the problem. If so replace the ignition switch.

Hello Bluebear.

When this happens on the Cadillacs of that year it is low or empty on refrigerant or the low pressure cycling switch has a problem.
The reason it happens is to prevent the compressor from coming on to protect it.
Without refrigerant in the system it can't get properly lubricated and will burn out.
I would recommend the system be checked by a professional.
You will just be wasting your money on kits at auto supply stores.
If you would like further advise on your Cadillac's AC, please ask me in comments.

Thank you for using FixYA.

Spark to distributor from coil, no spark coming from plug wires, replaced ignition module, no help

Hello Nummy.

If you have spark at the coil the module is OK. The module fires the coil.
Your problem then becomes the ignition wires, the distributor cap or the rotor.
These are the items that carry the high voltage to the spark plug.
There is also the possibility the spark is jumping off at the coil itself when all is hooked up.
This happens because the resistance increases through the wiring and jumping the gap at the spark plugs.
I hope your repair goes well. Thank you for using FixYa.

Rattling noise coming from my 2005 mazda 6's engine. it only happens when i drive slowly such as going through kfc drive through

Good evening.
If this is a tinny type of rattle and it only happens at certain RPM's I would look for a loose heat shield over the exhaust pipes. Have someone apply the throttle until the rattles begins and listen under the car with a long screwdriver or a yardstick. Use the screwdriver to push on the various shields surrounding the manifold and pipes until the rattle stops. then use a hose clamp or two to tighten them up.
Also I see a lot of catalytic converters that become loose internally and rattle around inside it.
The only cure for that is to replace the converter.
If this rattle is an internal engine noise you should have an experienced mechanics ears give you an opinion.

Thank you for using FixYa.
