OK, now you added 2 quarts of oil just because someone told you to. Did you check the oil level yourself? That is very suspicious unless your engine is smoking and burning oil. Park the car on a level surface, shut the engine off, and after 30 minutes remove the dip stick and check the oil level. You may find it is overfull. If it is that is just as bad as unde-full. In any case, Change the oil & filter and use a quality filter such as Purolator or Wix and the correct weight oil which will probably be 5w20. Check your owner's manual to be sure. If the oil light is still on, have a oil pressure test run. You may have nothing more than a bad oil pressure sending unit.

08 dodge charger I haven't drove 5 miles out. While driving on the freeway the oil light comes on and the car shuts off in traffic. Oil stick was dry so I added a quart still won't start up


You probably need to take it to a dealer to have it reset. If the motor isn't blown, there could be a safety shut off sensor that saved your motor from blowing up. Good luck

Check your instructions with the fog lamps, I believe you will need to take your car to a dealer to have them activate the fog lamp driver in the Totally Integrated Power Module.

2007 rabbit - oil light


If it was still running okay & no noise, probably no engine damage. Adding 2 quarts should have turned off the light if the problem was oil pressure. Sounds like the oil pressure sending unit may be bad.

Sensor light comes on(2008 Dodge Charger)


if the weather has changed and got cold your tire pressure would have dropped and would be lower. 2 options. 1 is fill ther tire to 30 psi and ride it out (remembering that when it warms up the tire pressure will automatically go up too)
2. Is to run a dry air such as nitrogen which does not change pressure in hot/cold weather.
Hope this helps

first thing first check your oil level--it can be couple of things When you stop all the oil travels to the front of the pan away from the low oil sensor. This triggers the light. Check your oil may need a half a quart to a quart of oil.add more oil.
