OIL LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON?


See my answer to your related/same question which I include again for your reference:
You must immediately check your engine oil level and take appropriate action: unless you have a defective oil pressure sensor, oil pressure light usually indicates that your engine oil is not flowing properly. Some possible issues: low oil level (leaking engine?), blocked oil filter (when did you last get your car service) or defective or blocked oil pump due to excessive dirty engine oil.
Also check under your car to see if you have any oil leaks: this usually indicate that you have defective engine gaskets or oil seals causing your oil (pressure) warning light to come on.
Hope it is of assistance. But I would consult a motor mechanic asap as you engine could soon fail due to the lack adequate oil lubrication.

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.

Service engine soon lights is on on lincoln continental 2001


Sometimes the service engine light comes on when the censor in the coolant overflow gets low. Try adding a little coolant to the overflow to the appropriate level.

No you need to have the vehicle scanned for the check engine light to see what the code is that has it on. Autozone will do this for free.

The engine goes into engine failure protection, then lights appear: abs, wrench, service engine soon and 4x4 is flashing... what the hell? no more kickdown...half the power, but still running...


Is the coolant level okay? The 4.0L thermostat housings have been known to become leaky. Otherwise codes should be stored in the cars modules to point in the direction of repair needed.

service your vehicle soon as a precautionary measure. No warning lights, oil level and engine coolant temp ok then I wouldn't worry but follow the recommended service intervals in your owners manual

Burning oil, but dont know why


Nowdays 1 Qt. in 3000 miles, really isn't that bad, even some new vehicles claim that's normal. I know with my current vehicles, both at approx. 150,000-160,000 miles, they won't use any for first while after an oil change, but then after mileage starts adding up again, they start to use a little, approx.I Qt, every 1000 miles or so, until it's changed again. I've switched to the high mileage oil, just for piece of mind, as they say it revives seals, and has added protection for the higher mileage engines.This time around I'm thinking of adding "Lucas" & see how it works, as I've heard some pretty good reports on it, just to see if it will prolong that oil breakdown, at mid change.
