    Have the codes read/deleted at your local parts store for free. ie auto zone, pep boys, etc. They will tell you what error code the OBD is kicking out, and you can report back here, and we can tell you what is wrong. Thanks

After you change the oil in the Chevy Lumina, you have to put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position but do not start it. Then press the gas peddle to the floor and release it 3 times within 5 seconds and it will reset the change engine oil gage.

You can reset the light by disconnecting the negative battery cable for about 30 minutes. If there is still an issue with the car after running the car after reconnecting the battery it will come back on. You will need to have it checked with diagnostic tool.

2006 jeep liberty dying randomly. Oil change and new air filter. About to change spark plugs and wires. No gauge lights, no sputtering. Just turns off randomly, starts right back up when I put in neutral...


My 2006 Liberty has a similar issue. The oil light beeps and then the engine shuts off. I put the car in park and it restarts and the oil light goes off. I had the oil, filter, and lines checked and everything checked out. The mechanic thinks it may be the oil sensor going out and that for safety reasons the engine shuts down when the oil light comes on.

We are overhaulin a 4hf1 engine. There seems to be no oil circulation. The oil light is not going off too. We have purchased a new replacement oil pump but no change.


Oil pressure switch is on the opposite side of engine to oil filter so the oil has to have pressure through the crank to go off.
To trace:
1. Remove sump/oil pan and remove oil pump.
2. Check oil pump turning it by hand.
3. Is the oil outlet pipe going to filter connected? There is s rubber O ring at the top too. Check.
4. Remove oil filter and check gallery pump to filter using compressed air.
5 If ok check oil filter to engine gallery as above. You might have to loosen the main bearings so that the oil gallery is not restricted by the bearings.
6. Remove oil pressure switch and blow jouna from tha end as well.
7. All that done and with oil OK down there chech if you are getting oil on the rockers after starting engine. If OK then you are done. If not check head gasket installation.

I have a 97 Chevy Lumina. It has 276,*** miles on it. I bought it used 4 months ago. It was running excellent then the service engine soon light, low coolant light, and change oil soon light started coming...


The fact that the oil was low would not be from the oil pump, but from wear in the engine. If it is not smoking when you start it or as you drive, you can probably keep it running by just keeping the oil level checked at each fuel fill-up. As for the car shutting off, you didn't say if the engine seized or got real hot. A low oil pressure problem should have triggered a warning light before the problem got to the point where you lost the engine.

If the car ran after you added the oil, you got lucky and need to always check it.

Chech engine light just came on i was going to get the oil change on monday does the oil have anything to do with the light coming on


  • The light on the left side of the instrument panel is a maintenance required light. If that is the light lit up then yes this means time for an oil change.
  • If the light lit up is on the right side of the instrument panel then this is the Check Engine Light and a scan will need to be done to see what is going on with the car.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Chech engine light is on


The check engine light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

How to change spark plug on 2006 cadillac DTS. My chech engine light is on, will this fix the problem. 88,000 miles


The plugs are located by engine head. You can use a ratchet wrench and sockets to remove them. Make sure to mark the plug wires so the order doesn't get mixed up.
The check engine light comes on when there is a bad sensor, or bad circuit.
Many part stores will run an engine diagnostic code scan for free which will pinpoint exact problem that is setting of the check engine light
The light can only be shut off by the diagnostic scanner!!
