Low Oil Pressure and Engine light illuminated in a 2009 Saturn Outlook with 97k miles. Car having issues starting, some engine noise, no knocking.


Potentially could be an oil pump, as if you have a situation where oil pump pressure drops due to a failure in the pump, the motor could make some noise from lack of oil and the MIL light/Oil Light would illuminate due to lack of oil pressure.

Can the tensioner make the chain to be loose inside the engine an cause it to make noise an show sign of oil on the dashboard?


A loose timing chain tensioner will not cause the oil lamp to light. The noise you are hearing is most likely valve noise due to oil starvation. The oil light comes on when the oil pressure is too low to be safe for the engine. Most people believe it is to tell you the oil level is low. A low oil level can cause low oil pressure is the oil is below the sump, but low oil is not the cause of the light - low oil pressure is. This can be due to a number of things, such as a bad oil pump, faulty bypass regulator at the oil filter, loose sump pipe connection, or even an oil gallery plug that comes out internal to the engine. You need to stop using the vehicle immediately and have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical guage to determine if the problem is the oil ressure or the sensor that lights the light. The chain tensioner being loose CAN cause noise, and that itself is an issue that should be fixed, as in many vehicles a loose chain can jump time, or jam and break, and since many cars have interference engines, either of these scenarios can cause severe internal damage to the engine.

Red spanner warning light


Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

Oil light on even with oil level correct, now engine making a rattling noise, live in Spain need help. A6 Avanti 2002


The light is on because of oil pressure being low in the engine, do not drive this until the source of this low pressure is corrected. The noise you hear is engine parts lacking proper lubrication. Have this fixed ASAP or you will destroy the engines bearings, a $4000.00 repair on this car.

Hello, I have a couple of questions. First of all my 1991 Honda Civic won't pass the emissions, it is considered a gross polluter and has high Nox and CO. I know this is a common problem in these cars of...


High CO should cancell Nox, catalytic is finished so youll need a catalytic.you cant have those 2 high together.Oil light came on,when the oil light comes on it means that the oil pressure is too low and not enough pressure to lubicate moving parts, checking the dip stick you only check the volume, your oil light checks the pressure.Check the oil again is it silverish,or rich black,and upon start up is there a thud noise? if yes the crank shaft and engine is locking up. So how much ? for the year . Salvage yard , dont rebuild, and here what you need to price a catalytic convertor, and a used engine, I hope this helped

Check engine light on after oil change three days ago


Your "check engine" light is an emission light. Oil is fine. You have to find the code to check whats wrong. Usually an engine light is just a tiny problem, but in other cases it could be anything from a sensor, to a bad cat converter. With a check engine light on a vehicle will not pass smog tests. You can turn it off by unhooking your pos side to the battery for about 3 min. Then you will have to drive it 30 miles non stop for the computer to put the code back in and the light will come back on

My vw passat 4 motion year 2000, i picked up from shop yesterday ran great, he changed the abs module to pass emissions, it did, came home and had a huge clicking noise, checked oil, was low, put a quart...


Go back and speak with the mechanic. Clicking may be only the lifters. ABS service has nothing to do with the oil system. May be coincidence.Fill oil to Full before driving it and search for leaks.
