Sir,
This is definatly not normal. what actually happens is that there is less oil in the engine but when you turn on the car and let it get warm in mean while the oil comes up on the chamber and shows that oil is full and later it sank back to lower oil chamber. So the point is that you need to get oil refiled in the car and there might be leakage in the car oil chamber. thank you.

How do I check and replace engine oil sensor.


Knowing how these gauges work , I'd say you have an instrument cluster problem not oil sender unit. 2003 - 2006 GM had bad stepper motors in the instrument cluster . If there was a problem with the oil sender the gauge would default to zero .
Engine Oil Pressure Gage
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the engine oil pressure as determined by the powertrain control module (PCM). The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM indicating the engine oil pressure. The engine oil pressure gage defaults to 0 kPa (0 psi) or below if:
?€¢
The PCM detects a malfunction in the engine oil pressure sensor circuit.

?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of class 2 communications with the PCM.

If you don't know what class 2 serial data communications are ,google it. How to repair GM Instrument Cluster Speedometer Gauge Stepper

Car is cold dipstick shows full when hot shows low


Don't worry to much about that as long as it is with in range on the dip stick. When cold all the oil has drained back to the sump and when hot some of the oil is still up in the heads around the valve gear.

Why would the transmission blowback from where you put the transmission fluid in


The most likely scenario is that it is foaming or is overfull.

Are you checking the oil level when the motor and trans are warm/ hot, the car is idling on a level surface? If you are adding trans fluid when the car is off and cold you are very likely overfilling it . If you are checking the oil level when the vehicle is idleing and warm and it is still blowing out of the dip stick tube , then check what the transfluid looks and smells like. It should be pink to light red and not smell "burnt".

Let the vehicle cool off, ( overnight) . Pull the stick and see if there is anything on the stick. If not, add fluid until it is just on the tip of the stick. If when cold the oil is on the stick, has a good appearance and is any where near the fill lines proceed to next step. If the oil is above the fill and full lines it is overfull and will foam up in operation. The excess oil must be drained.
Start the car and allow it to idle until it is warm. Pull the trans stick back out and see where the oil is on the stick. When warm and idling it should be in the area between add and full. if it's over those lines when warm, it's over full and needs to be drained to the correct level.

If the oil has a milky appearance it is contaminated with water or other substance; you need to take the car for service. It is likely the coolant from the radiator and the oil cooler for the trans have been leaking by contaminating each other. Both systems will need to be completely cleaned and the source of the leak will need to be fixed before the car is used again.

My car is not heating properly lately. It blows warm and then completely cold while I'm driving it. I put coolant in just now and it blew very warm for about 5 min. then it turned to cold completely.


if your engine has a leak in the coolant system as long you keep it full heater will work, if there is no leak in coolant system and your heater blows warm and then you start driving and then starts to blowing cold you have a clogged heater core..

MY SATURN 1 SHOWS NO OIL WHEN IT IS COLD BUT WHEN CAR IS TURNED ON IT SHOWS FULL WHY IS THIS


To check engine oil level engine needs to be off, if check while engine running, oil will splash inside oil pan and all over your dip stick giving you bad reading, Check oil level with engine off and add to full mark on oil dip stick. Running engine with low oil will cause major damage to your engine. To check transmission level engine needs to be running at normal engine temp.

Oil pressure high when engine cold. but fine when engine is warm


It is normal for oil pressure to be higher when the oil is cold. As the oil heats up, it will thin out. Since your oil pump is driven faster with the acceleration of the engine, your pressure will also increase. On a engine up to full temp, your oil pressure will probably be around 20 psi and maybe up to 60 at full load. But on a cold engine, you may see 60 psi at idle. I dont know if your high oil pressure is causing your vehicle to stall, but maybe your running the wrong weight/type of oil for your truck. If you live in a extreme cold area, you may want to look into a block heater to help warm up your engine faster.

Oil level sender


Does it go off after the car is started? If not, replace the oil sending unit, if it still doesn't go off, have the oil pump checked, the pressure release valve might be stuck.
