Why did car die while driving on Interstate and will not start back up


When the engine dies all the lights on the dash should come ! It's when the engine is still running an those lights come is when you need to worry ! You need to check for spark an fuel pressure. If no spark probably an ignition module , crankshaft position sensor or distributer module , what ever ignition system it has. If there is spark spray some carburetor clean into the engine , if it try's to start you have a fuel delivery problem , fuel pump , relay ! No Start Diagnostic Basics EricTheCarGuy

Check engine, battery, oil lights are on?


The Check Engine tells you that something is wrong about your ride. Get your ride check for error code and take necessary steps to resolve the issue. Also you can post the error codes so that we can help you to solve the issue. Battery light lit means that your battery needs to be charged or the electrolyte in the battery is low. Also it can be possible that the battery needs replacement. Last the oil light alerts you to change the engine oil. The engine oil prevents the engine components from wearing due to friction and suppresses the heat generation keeping the metal parts in proper working condition.

1993 chevy pickup z 71 driving down interstate and check gauge light came on and oil presure dropped to 0. Truck died and cant start again


It could be the oil pressure sending unit, or the engine could really have no oil pressure.
If the oil pressure dropped to zero at highway speed, I would expect the engine to lock up or at least make alot of noise.
You may have to tow it home and check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, or replace the sending unit to see if the gauge on the dash reads pressure.
The fuel pump gets power from the pump relay at startup, then runs off power from that oil sending unit when the engine is running.

Check Engine Oil Level Light Coming on when driving on interstate


Hi, this will happen when the oil sending unit(module) is malfunctioning. This a sensor that reads the information and sends the alerts which initiates the lights actions. Replacing this sending unit(module) will fix this issue. There is a more sever issue that may not be the case but, there is a chance. The oil pump itself may be malfunctioning. this could also trigger this alert as well. I suspect the sending unit may be malfunctioning.


please rate and have a great day...

95 Toyota died while driving


when you overheated the engine you warped the head.   check your coolant level,  and check the oil to see if there is coolant in it.   worst case you get the head decked and then put a new gasket on.
