I have oil leak in my 1996 Lincoln town car. Just had a oil change last month a now my dip stick says add and check engine light is on.

How's the motor look around the valve covers,just because the oil light comes on doesn't mean the only problem is low oil,could mean low oil pressure,which is caused by many reasons.

I have a 96 vitara and when I turn the lights on the revs drop to the point of neally stalling, I have replaced the battery, and it is charging well

head lights.? on?
hot or cold engine, ? both?
i guess? you are parked, and in neutral, and the engine stalls.
the #1 reason for stalls is a stuck open EGR main valve. clean it.
there are other reasons, but above must be good to proceed.
motor running way lean, diagnose that. use a scan tool , you in USA?

Oil Light came on beeping, then stopped, oil level ok, what can this be. I recently had my head Gasket replaced, could this have anything to do with this. 1995 Jetta CSX

The beep is an error message not necessarily oil. Check connections to all senders by the engine i.e. water and the 2 oils. Check coolant level as well.

I just got an oil change on my 2003 Suzuki Vitara in 24 hours later my service engine soon light came on anyone have an idea what the problem might be?

Check the oil level with the dip stick! It would not be the first time that too little oil was put in an engine during a oil change! Also, the oil drain plug or the oil filter could be loose or missing!
Check for oil on the ground under the car or oil dripping from the undercarriage.

Grand vitara 19ddis oil check

The oil capacity differs from engine and what type of filter you use the variations are 4.4qts, 5.5qts, and 5.8qts. Check your oil with engine off anf screw the cap on then take it out and check the level

Oil light comes on, car stops dead immediately

For some reason the engine has lost oil pressure, it could be a bad oil pump. Trying to drive it any further could result in major engine damage if there isn't any already. Have it towed to a reputable repair facility asap.

My suzuki vitara has check engine light on and is ok for water and i put oil into it as seemed bit low, but it wont start at all. pls help

Check if there's a spark in the cable going to the distributor. If there's none then you may have a problem in the ignition system components. A defective air flow sensor can also cause a no start. If spark is present, you may want to visit the fuel system of your car.

A check engine light can be caused by any sensor being out of range. you will need to have codes checked to begin to look for the problem. It does not always mean that there is an internal problem. If oil pressure gauge or light is normal and engine is not overheating then it's a computer related problem.
