I am sorry, but it sounds like your oil pump has gone out or is going out. I am sure that you have checked the oil and added it until it is full. If you would like to try to save the engine, you will need to take off the oil pan and change out the oil pump.

I'm trying to locate the oil sending unit on a 2001 plymouth neon


How many miles on the car? I recommend hooking up a direct reading oil pressure guage. Oil level is not the only factor on oil pressure. As an engine ages, clearances and bearings wear and the pressure falls. Using too thin oil can result in low pressure.

Did you check the oil pressure switch? Are you getting a low oil light?

Engine clatter


Have a mechanic or shop put a mechanical oil pressure gauge in the oil pressure sending unit's mounting hole. Check oil pressure against the spec for your car. Does the warning light turn on every time this happens? If so, try to check oil pressure when the light is on-you may have an intermittent oil pressure problem, or oil pressure may just be too low. Don't believe it's a sensor, don't know how, but not familiar with your newer ride. Something as simple as a pick up tube gasket that leaks could cause low oil pressure. If that happens, the top end of engine will clatter-not getting enough oil up there.

I have a 92 Plymouth Laser with 12,000 miles. The fuel went bad while in storage. The tank was removed and cleaned and the fuel pump and filters were replaced. The car runs rich and surges and is worse...


Did you check fuel pressure after replacing the pump ?
If the regulator fails, it would either not maintain normal pressure, or leak fuel into the vac hose.
If the mass airflow meter fails, it won't run and the check engine light would be on.
Have you watched the O2 sensor and engine temp sensor on a scanner to see what they are reading ?

oil pressure should be around 80 to 90 psi when first start,and then drop to 25 when oil is warm. it depends on the oil grade you use. in your car you should have 10w30 . if it is low. first try a oil pressure sensor and good clean oil

I have a 2002 Grand am Gt 3400 engine.. Car ran fine, no problems..Went out to start it one afternoon and engine clattered very badly..so i turned it off right away.. took off the valve cover and i did...


The engine needs to be replaced. Clatter can be the main and rod bearings or the lifters. Lifters clatter with no oil pressure. Low or no oil pressure is usually bearings. Oil pumps rarely go bad, they are a very simple set up And work forever. I have never replaced a pump because it was bad. And running an engine for 30 seconds would not do that kind of damage. But running a long time low on oil will.

92 voyager check gage light


That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

Stall as soon as oil light came on..92 sundance


I don't think a 92 sundance will shut the fuel pump down when the oil pressure is low, but it might. Can you get it to run on carb cleaner. If it is oil pressure, the car should start then run a few seconds and die. Have you checked the timing belt? If it broke the distributor will stop turning which would stop the oil pump.
