If the idle speed drops to a low enough point when the oil is hot, then the oil pressure light will come on because the oil pump, which is driven by the engine, is not turning fast enough to maintain proper pressure. You'll need to find out why the idle is dropping and almost dying. It could be a bad IAC valve, dirty throttle valve or something like a vacuum leak. It would be helpful if you had a scan tool to monitor IAC (idle air control valve) counts as this is happening as it would help you find the cause. This may be a job for a shop, but don't let them sell you an oil pump until the low idle problem is fixed.

What's your problem?I have a 1999 Oldsmobile Intrigue 3.8 that I just changed the oil sending unit and still have the oil light on, any help


possibly the light is coming on due to low oil pressure if you have high miles on the engine usually over 200xxx. try disconnecting the battery for about 15 minutes then reconnect that sometimes will reset warning lights. good luck

2010 HHR runs rough after oil change, no power will not shift into next gearr and dies


Take your car to a real shop, not one with pretend mechanics, and have it evaluated by a qualified mechanic for engine damage. It sounds like they either forgot to put oil in, or didn't tighten the drain plug or filter and you lost most of your oil. If damage is found, and the qualified mechanic states that the damage could be due to oil starvation, file a claim with Meineke. Be prepared for a runaround (hundreds of YouTube videos on these ripoff shops - Meineke, Jiffy Lube, etc).

My inlaws have a 2007 town&country and it is using 4 quarts in 5000 miles this has happened between the last 3 oil changes it has 65,247 miles on it now. When they bought it used they ran it almost...


Four quarts on 5000 miles is quite a lot. You should see white smoke from burning oil. If not then it's leaking out. After a trip top off the oil and place a sheet of cardboard under the van when parked overnight or longer. Then check the cardboard if there is oil on it it's leaking either from the drain plug or oil filter. Regardless always check your oil level and do not run it if it is low by any means. Also a visual check with a good light source should be done too. Feel the drain plug area and oil filter area for wet dripping oil. Be careful and don't do this when hot.
Good luck and I hope this helps

My 1990 Buick Park Avenue dies after 15 miles


Replace the crank sensor as they get hot they will sometimes quit working. The temp light comes on everytime the engine is turned off and the switch is on. Next time it dies spray or pour some water on the sensor then see if it will crank and if it does you know what it is.

1998 2D Coupe(Automatic) O/D blinks, catch when gears change


When was the last time the Transmission Fluid and Filter were changed? More than 35,000 miles = Fluid and Filter change.
Is there any leaks what so ever? This will affect shifting.
Have the Transmission Sensors been removed, cleaned/inspected and reinstalled? These Sensors are "magnets" and catch little metal particles that inhibit their functions, including shifting.
What is the condition and level of the Transmission Fluid. Make sure you smell the Fluid. If it smells burnt, then change it immediately. Make sure you check the level when the engine is at normal temperature and while the engine is running, with the gear in Park or Neutral (with the Parking Brake ON!).
Does this Transmission have a Solenoid (electronic shifting)? If so have you checked the electronic connections for corrosion or oxidation?
Don't spend $2,000 (or more) dollars when the rest of these combined cost less than $200 dollars!
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Oil light goes on...had a dry stick 4 1/2 qts put in. no oil on ground. after oil change light went on at 70 miles.. on 15 secs then off for 5 miles then on again 15 secs--- off 4 miles--off 3 miles- off 2...


if it's not going onto the ground, and it's not being burned, check the positive crankcase ventilation and the exhaust gas recirculation valves for oil seepage...also check your air filter, if its got oil on it replace the pcv valve.

Oil light


I suspect that the oil pump is weak or it has a lot of miles. I would try a little thicker oil first to see if this helps with the light. Maybe even use a 20/50

2001 F-250 7.3 DIESEL STALLED & QUIT & WILL NOT CRANK PLEASE HELP


That engine uses high pressure oil to open the injectors. Of course make sure your oil level is up then try turning it over while tapping on the IPC solenoid to see if you have a high pressure oil issue.
