I have a 1998 2 wheel drive GMC pick-up. It locks up in reverse. If I drive it around for a while the problem goes away. But as soon as it's setting for a while and I try to reverse it the brakes lock up....

when was the box oil last changed? low or weak oil will make this happen. think it is recommended you change this oil 8-10 years 15 is max on most boxes.

Oil pressure light goes on --check oil oil is okay. now the check engine light goes on too. do you think i need to change my oil pressure switch?

first get the code that is stored in the computer when the check engine light went on. Most major auto parts stores will read that code out for free. If the oil pressure is truly very low, the engine will be damaged so be careful. Changing the oil pressure switch is a safe move. But if the oil pressure remains low on the new switch you must investigate why. The oil filter could be plugged up, the oil pump could be going bad, or there could be a major internal engine problem. That is why you need the code. It could give a clue as to what is happening in the engine.

Oil pressure light on - plenty of oil i n engine

it sounds like the bad oil pump to me, before you replace the oil pump one more thing you need to check. If your car is a automatic transmission

1. check the oil pressure switch
2. change the transmission fluid and fiter,
hope this can help.

I see waht i think is my check oil light on the dash its a red symbol with and oil can and a drop of fluid coming out but it doesnt fully come on. it faintly comes and goes away slowly. i just did an oil...

this is not oil change light but oil pressure. did it come on before or after oil change? if after it could be a bad or wrong oil filter. if not hopefully it is a bad oil sending unit. otherwise u got motor problems!

Wat type of oil goes gti automatic

The problem here is did he put the right transmission fluid in when he changed it? Changing the trans oil is no problem but if he put the wrong oil in you are going to have major problems because you are damaging your transmission everytime you use it. You will need to check the operator handbook in your glove compartment for the correct type of oil or take the vehicle to a transmission shop where they can change the oil and filter.

2003 vw golf making a ticking noise from under the hood?? the oil light blinks on sometime but goes off when i get above 3000 rpms?? what does this mean

i think it means you need to add oil,,,if you got a oil light comming on that means its low on oil and a ticking noise that also means its low on oil,,,change your oil asap before you ruin the engine

2002 Mitsubishi Lancer Oil Light at Low RPMS.

could be the oil pump, but before you get to that, whens the last time you had you oil changed? is it the right type? was the filter changed to? if the oil is to thick for your engine, the pump could be having a problem pushing it. If its dirty, same thing applies. Next time you change your oil, be sure to use a full synthetic. its a superior oil all around.

I think there is gas in my oil

The cause of gas in the oil may be several things. If the engine floods all the time or has flooded. If you have trouble starting it in the morning and fuel goes into the oil sump. If your truck has a carburator the needle is probably bad. In any case, have youe engine checked. gas in the oil is not good. Change the oil and filter. If it continues take the truck to a good mechanic that you can trust..
