    Did you fill the oil filter up before you put it on and if so then the oil is either not draining completely out of your valve body, or you are burning it. Have you dad this problem before, I mean having to put oil in it all the time or is it recent? e-mail me at bigwheels4now@yahoo.com if you would like further support.

Does the car emit blue smoke from the exhaust when driving? If so, either the piston rings or valve seals could be bad (expensive repair). The PCV valve could also be bad. The last reason (but no blue smoke) might be a physical oil leak due to a loose oil filter, drain plug, leaking oil pressure sensor, or worn crankshaft seal. Good luck!

This just started last week; I changed the oil & filter today cause previous owner said it did that to him when he was late changing the oil/filter. When I backed into my drive, the light went out


Feels like walking into a conversation, but missing the first few paragraphs...

"This just started". Unfortunately, we don't know what "this" actually is, nor what light went out.

You did check the oil level, right?

What happened? My Car will not drive forward or reverse, front wheels are now locked, can't even push it.


This is a transmission related issue. If the vehicle starts but will not go in any gear you have an intrernal tranny problem. Will it move at all in neutral? Check and see if the trans fluid is at the proper level. I believe these transmissions are just drain and fill ( no filter change ) during fluid service. If the fluid level is correct and a good color, the internal differential may have come apart causing the lock up situation. If the fluid level is low ( suspect a leak especially after a service ) and low fluid will cause a no shift/drive issue

A week ago i had all of my car oil change then after that week the oilpan light came up and it is steady red is not blinking sone time it goes away and then it come back what could be


hi, the oil light in your vehicle comes on to let you know that the oil pressure or level is low. sounds like the oil change was performed, but the oil level was not returned(not filled) correctly, or not filled at all. also a possibility that the oil leaked out from a leaking oil filter or drain plug. you should check the oil level on the dipstick before you drive again. if it is low, or empty, the engine will likely blow very soon. fill the oil if it is low until it shows on the dipstick. then top off until on the full mark. or, call the shop that performed the oil change and have them tow your vehicle back to have it serviced correctly. you should be upset at this fact, there should never be a time when you just have your oil changed and the oil light comes on soon after. this generally tells you that your vehicle was not serviced properly.

Light comes on saying low oil level, stop safely and stop engine. Had oil changed two weeks ago.


If you did not do the oil change it is possible A) the plug was not tight, B) the filter was not tight, or C) the correct amount of oil was not installed.
Check oil level.

Hi:
The first thing to do, of course is to check your oil? Even though you had an oil change two weeks ago, you could have a bad gasket on your new oil filter, or there could have been a oil plug problem, or it could be just a sensor failure. If your oil is really low, you need to take it some where to find the leak. IF the oil level is ok, then you need to troubleshoot the sensor .

Oil light comes on at stop signs


Low oil pressure,caused by low oil level or plugged oil filter or bad oil pump. First try oil change $25, next replace oil pump.

Oil Change two weeks ago and oil level is low already???


I assume you have no leaks as you say. Your van does hold 5 quarts of 10w30 oil with filter change. The level was 1/4" above the add mark, which is less than 1 quart low. You drove the van 1,300 miles so it is very possible that it could burn that much oil in that many miles without you seeing much smoke. Top it off and have someone else drive it. Have them get up to around 60 mph, then let off the accelerator and let it coast down to 30 mph, then accelerate fully while you follow in another vehicle. If your van is burning oil you will see a big puff of blue smoke when they accelerate after coasting. If you do not I would suspect you were cheated out of about 1/2 quart of oil. You would not be the first person this has happened to. Top it off and check as I described and then check the level after driving another 1,300 miles. If it is still full find another place to change your oil as the place you went are crooks.

My husband and I have a 1995 Oldsmobile Aurora. We just changed the oil about 2 weeks ago. He checked the fluids earlier and the oil was low and the car is running hot. What could be causing this?


If you changed the oil filter at the same time check that it hasnt come loose and leaked some oil though there would be signs of that where the car site. If it is overheating check your water as well.

Also check the oil for water and the water for oil as you will want to make sure that you havent done any head damage or blown the gasket.

If i'm not mistaken the light beside the battery sign is the check engine light. this lights up if anything under the hood is not functioning the way it should. Unfortunately i cannot be more specific on this. It just means that you could be staring at a major repair, or your gas cap could be too loose (no kidding).

Well as you've mention your oil is dropping at a very fast rate then its a good place to start checking. You can check if your oil seals are ok and might as well check all the filters...oil filters, fule filters air filters.

Hope i have answered your question. Goodluck!
