Question about 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
My car stalled after being parked on a slope. I checked the lights and it said the oil was low. This is something I check religiously. After putting in oil the light is still on. My friend said it could be the oil pump. I can't start it without it wanting to stall. What should I do?
Replace your oil pressure sending unit. many have a low pressure shut off feature that will prevent engine from running. Also, don't check oil on a hill, you will always get a false reading.
If the problem continues you will need to have a mechanical gauge put on the engine to verify actual oil pressure. then plan a repair according to those results.
