Nissan recommends changing the oil every 3750 miles. The computer is reminding you that you have driven 3860 miles without yet changing the oil.

Check engine, battery, oil lights are on?

The Check Engine tells you that something is wrong about your ride. Get your ride check for error code and take necessary steps to resolve the issue. Also you can post the error codes so that we can help you to solve the issue. Battery light lit means that your battery needs to be charged or the electrolyte in the battery is low. Also it can be possible that the battery needs replacement. Last the oil light alerts you to change the engine oil. The engine oil prevents the engine components from wearing due to friction and suppresses the heat generation keeping the metal parts in proper working condition.

Vortec oil pump on a gmc jimmy

Don't start the car !!!

Can you see the part from the whole where the distributor goes ?
If you can you may be able to fish it out.
Your distributor has a drive shaft that goes from the dist to the oil pump in the oilpan.
Hopefully it is sitting on top of the shaft.
Their are know oil lines at the bottom of you engine, everything is internal.
If you cant fish them out from the top, the oilpan will have to be removed.
I think your best bet is to try to remove the pieces from the dist hole with a magnet on a shaft or maybe very sticky tape on a shaft.
Good luck, Robert

Chech engine light just came on i was going to get the oil change on monday does the oil have anything to do with the light coming on

  • The light on the left side of the instrument panel is a maintenance required light. If that is the light lit up then yes this means time for an oil change.
  • If the light lit up is on the right side of the instrument panel then this is the Check Engine Light and a scan will need to be done to see what is going on with the car.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 2007 chevy silverado. It was low on oil. I put 2 quarts in, oil light went off. When I drove it the low oil pressure light came on and also said engine shut down. What could be causing this...

If its reading low oil pressure I would first change your oil and filter.A clogged oil filter will cause your oil pressure to drop.Also remove your pressure sending unit and hook up a direct oil pressure guage to see what your actual pressure is.Its very possible that your oil pump could be bad.Those would be the most probable reasons for low oil pressure.The engine shut down means that your your engine has a fail safe to protect your motor from blowing up.

Check oil light stays lit and engine knocks untill you get up to 45 mph...then light goes off and car sounds fine...i may have ran it dry a half a mile...replaced oil filter and oil pan

Check your oil level, if your oil level is good. Then you may have a bad oil pump and your going to have to tear the engine apart to replace it, but if you think you have done damage to the engine from running it dry of oil. Replace the engine, the cost will be cheaper to replace the engine with a used one from a salvage yard then to replace the bad oil pump in you engine since your bearings may be damaged.
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya, in the mean time you might get away with adding Lucas engine oil treatment.

Why does the oil pressure warning light lit up when I brake for montero sport

It sounds like you may not have enough oil in your engine to maintain the proper pressure. You should check your oil level as you may have a leak. When you come to a stop, if you give it a bit of gas and the light goes off, it definitely means there's a problem with the pressure. Look around the engine for signs of oil. (one area people often forget to check is right where the engine connects to the transmission) Also if your exhaust smoke is bluish, then you're burning oil which means you're leaking it into the combustion chambers.

Oil light comes on

Yellow oil can lit means you need to top up the oil. Red oil can means you have lost oil pressure.
