GM said the sensor by the oil filter on a 1997 achevia is a crank sensor you its a oil presser sw. and it is linked to Ign sw. how , will the eng die in a second if the wires are broken or the sensor


the oil pressure sensor tells the ECM when there is insufficient oil pressure to safely run the engine
when you start an engine there is oil covering the pump inlet and the pressure buils up
if there is insufficient oil to maintain pressure ,or the pump cannot maintain a low preset pressure , the ecm will shut the engine down to protect it
like wise if the wiring is loose /faulty the signal from the sensor is interrupted and that tells the ecm to shut the engine down
again if the sensor is faulty , the ecm will shut the engine down
how to fix :-
install a mechanical oil gauge in the system and check for oil pressure achieved
replace the sensor switch with a known good one
run the fault codes

The oil pressure dropped in my car because of hole in the oil pan the motor then shut off and will not turn over.is there a sensor that shuts it off or is it possible it locked up


Some vehicles do have an oil lvl sensor that will shut the engine off if the lvl falls to unsafe. The sensor should be located on the oil pan itself. If the hole has been fixed and the pan is full of oil, this should not be an issue. If the hole has not been fixed, the engine has no business running anyway. you can tell of the engine is locked up by putting a socket and ratchet on the main crank pulley bolt and seeing if the engine will turn.

1995 trans sport van new fuel pump, won't start


If the pump continued to run after shutting off the car you fuel pump relay was probably staying latched. I would replace the relay as well based on your info. Along with the pump the fuel filter should be replaced too and fuel pressure should be checked. Make sure your ground is good also.

Engine started tapping ,then car shut off and has no oil ptessure. will start but wont move


time for a rebuild or replacement. the vehicle knock sensor most likely is what shut the car off to prevent damage. if vehicle has been forced to start after the fact in repairable engine damage has most likely taken place. you cannot run an engine with no oil pressure, low oil pressure can be ok in an emergency but never ever run your engine with no oil pressure

Oil light came on runs really rough and then shuts down. so far i replaced fuel pump, mass air flow sensor, oil pressure sensor and oil level sensor. nothing yet. no check engine light either.


Don't run the engine with the oil light on. No oil pressure means no oil circulation, and damage will result. Have a shop check the oil pressure with a gauge that plugs into the oil pressure sensor port. If no pressure, check if you need a new oil pump.

Injector not working why put new injector new computer new fuel pump does it have injector relay 1987 celebrity


Check fuel pressure. Have you replaced the fuel filter on schedule? Verify that the fuel pump is getting power. Power goes through an in-line fuse, then the fuel pump relay or the oil pressure sensor. (The relay bypasses the oil pressure sensor while the engine starts, but fuel pump power goes through the sensor during normal run operation. If you lose oil pressure, the fuel pump is shut off to protect the engine.) On four-cylinder models, the fuse is in the fuse block (E PUMP 10)
The fuel injectors are connected to the ECM fuse on one side and straight to the engine computer on the other side. Check the connectors and wiring, especially at the injector.

I have no power to the fuel pump on my 1996 TBird. Where is the fuse for the fuel pump located.


Do this test first. With the drivers door opened in a nice quite area turn the ignition key to the ON position without starting the engine. You should hear the fuel pump operating for 5 seconds which is priming fuel to the engine. If not heard the engines oil pressure sensor is at fault. The third wire from this sensor links to the fuel pump to prime. When the engine reaches normal operation oil pressure range the computer shuts off that circuit and turns on the fuel pump relay for the pump to run. That relay stays on until you shut the engine off

Fuel shut off switch , where is it


Ford had a shut off switch only. It is a saftey design Fors had for decades and no other Car maker has this option as of yet
Yours will have a fuel pump fuse, a relay to the pump. an oil sensor that is runs the fuel pump only upon starting up the engine and shuts off upon when the engine reaches normal oil pressure. When the sensor shuts off the fuel pump relay takes over until the engine is shut off. When you turn the key to the on position you will hear the fuel pump working inside the fuel tank. No need to turn the key to the start position only to the on position. If the pump is not working you have either a bad fuel pump or a oil pressure sensor. If you do hear it pumping for 5 seconds the engine should fire and die out telling you the relay or pump is bad
