Hi
Did you mean oil light ?
If so.... have you checked your engine oil level ?

If this is a diesel, perhaps you mean the cold start glow plugs light ?

If this light does not go out, the problem is in this department, normally fuse or the relay.
If it is really cold, this is why the engine will not start, as the glow plugs are not functioning.

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating, almost a Guru !

Reverse on my gmc envoy not working


This can be due to few reasons but the most important can be as follows:

1. If can be a mis-alignment of the gear lever to the gear box as normally the reverse gear is always engage with more movement . so a change of postion or setting can alter the notch settings and refuse to engage properly.
2. Secondly the fault within the gear box, if there is a linkage or counter wheel/gear setting within it will not mesh or engage as the setting would be altered.
3. finally gaps or bush failures in the gear lever, linkages or the gear box will make the movement restricted and hence not engage.
You need to check on all the above. Thank You.

Engine starts and runs fine. Lo, 2nd and drive do engage - whirring noise when first starts up - no reverse at all and no gear engagement or clunking in reverse.


Start by checking the fluid condition and level.Too little or too much fluid can cause problems like this.Sounds like the reverse servo is going bad to me. the whirring sound could also be the torque converter. i don't specialize in transmissions but have diagnosed quite a few.
Hope this helps you some,

Could frozen e brakes cause car not to go forward, car moves easy in reverse


No. An emergency brake on the 86 camaro engages the pads against the rotor and the vehicle would not move either in reverse or forward. It sounds like you have a gear problem in the transmission that could be related to either solenoid or actual gear wear. Assuming the vehicle is being MOVED as you say while the engine is running.. thus providing the energy to move it.. Going in reverse has the solenoid engaged one way, drive the other way. Solenoid sounds damaged at this point. Unfortunately this probably will require a transmission rebuild.

Car is automatic will not engage in reverse


Common problem with EN471B is clutch bands failing. Same band for reverse and second gear. Any second gear problems? Possibly shifting directly from first to third? Drop transmission pan and check for bits of clutch band (non- metallic debris) to confirm.
