After changing engine all lots of white smoke can out and now the engine will not start

White smoke comes from water, blue from burning oil and black from too rich a fuel mixture. If the engine was running before the oil change occurred then perhaps you put in far too much oil. This can force oil past seals and into the combustion chamber resulting in thick smoke. Carefully check the oil level on the dip stick for the correct fill level. If there is too much you must remove the overfill. If oil has entered the combustion chamber the plugs may be fouled. Pull one out and examine it. If it is not gray and clean you must clean them all before the spark will jump the gap and the engine can run. If the engine did not run before there is a great chance , based on white smoke, that water is entering the combustion chamber.

Management light came on mechanic said to put oil in put some in car was fine then week later wont start mechanic said oil over fill

I would never go back to that mechanic. If the light comes on, go to autozone or other store and have the code read(FREE) and they will often times give very helpful advice. Most cars have oil lights which would light up if you did not have enough oil and/or were losing oil pressure.

Oil light will only come on when the sensor does not detect oil flow.You may have a circulation issue not allowing oil to return to oil pan quick enough to keep up on motorway. Have valve covers removed and check for build up at oil return ports in top of head(s)

Oil temp low. as low as it can be read on gague. check engine light on. car sometimes has trouble with going into reverse

The first thing you should do is to check your oil level, by the way, it is an oil PRESSURE gauge. Which shows you at what pressure your oil is being pumped up to the valves. If the oil level is ok then the oil pump (located in your oil pan) could be clogged or quit working.

If the oil level was low, then fill to the correct level and then take your vehicle to an auto parts store to have the error codes read and write them down so that you can give us them later (if needed).

Do not know what the problem is, but my check engine light is on? Recently had the oil changed and all fluids are filled up. Put in antifreeze/coolant and it was low within a week, but I found no leaking...

A loss of coolant with no apparent leak more than likely means you have a blown head gasket, cracked head, or both. Coolant entering the combustion chamber can cause a miss and that would set the Check Engine light. STOP driving this vehicle until you can find out for sure. You will destroy this engine if it has a blown head gasket and you continue to drive it. Other symptoms of a blown head gasket are white smoke from the exhaust and an overfull oil level with a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap. You will also have a sweet smell at the exhaust.

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.

no checking the trans fluid. There is a drain and fill plug. Jack up the car, keep it level, at hot temp, remove fill plug, if a little fluid comes out, it is at the correct level. know the difference between the drain and fill plug. the fill plug is higher.

Oil fill light

i am pretty sure the oil light comes on when the key is turned to the ON position, then goes out after it starts (providing oil quantity is not low). if it stays on after it starts, then may be an issue with sending unit.

mention it to the dealer when you take it in and they should be able to further diagnose.

BTW, what service is it going in for is oil service was performed 5000 miles ago?
