Oil pressure problem


if you have a 4jx1 3.0 engine then the engine wont run properly because engine oil pressure is what drives the direct injection system.
Check for blocked oil filters 2 pieces if not remove the oil pan and check the oil pickup tube for oil sludge blockage

Oil pressure problem


in a shop we ignore the dash gauges and use REAL gauges.
we attach a real gauge to the sender port. on engine block.
and read the true pressure.
the lamp on most cars go on at 3 to 5psi.
this is catastrophic failure. that low.

my guess, is you let oil drop and you wrecked bearings.
but let the real gauge prove that , dont guess.

1998 Sebring JXi... oil pressure light came on then lost all power (like in neutral)


Have you checked the oil level in the engine? Without suffient oil, the oil pressure will drop.

Lost all oil pressure and the blazer shut off. its a 1985 2.8 v6. is there a automatic cut off in the car? And how hard is it to change the oil sending unit?


The fuel pump gets power from the oil pressure switch once the engine is started. So if oil pressure drops below 5 psi the engine should stop.
Other than a special socket to fit the oil pressure switch, its not too difficult to change.

If oil pressure sensor is bad could it damage my vehicle further


It's a warning light system that no oil pressure exists. If it doesn't work, it won't cause damage, you just won't know if and when your oil pressure is lost. The sensor or sender unit is very inexpensive on most vehicles, like under $10.
All the sender does is cause the oil light to go off when it detects minimal pressure. A valve inside the sender moves and causes the sender to stop grounding the warning light, and so the light goes off.

Oil pressure is really low and valve started ticking after oil change, WHY??


the new oil pressure is affected by the pump speed especially an oil pump that has done a lot of work. Low water pressure is usually a sign of engine wear particularly around the mains and bigends.
As the motor ages and all the parts become worn more and more is lost into the crankcase. As you rev the motor the oil pressure increases and will maintain its pressure at around six or eight PSI.
When you change the oil in the hydraulic tappets drain the oil away and so when you restart the engine after you have changed the oil the worn oil pump take some time to get new oil up and around the hydraulic tappets.
This is a common problem with well used engines, it does not mean that they are not usable but it does mean they are starting to show their age.
Regards

Engine Knocking / No Power


Dosent sound good. Oil light on means you lost oil pressure. and the knocking sound is the damage done due to low pressure. Start looking for another engine or another van.

Why is showing low oil pressure and stop engine on dash board i have low oil pressure and it reads stop engine


Check your oil. If it is low, top it off and see if the light goes out. If your oil is full, have your oil pressure checked.

My car is making this weird knocking noise and people tell me its the timing chain it wont go over 40 mph now it drove fine till i had it out one day and it lost power and started knocking it still runs...


The rod knocking is caused by loss of oil pressure. Did the oil light not come on? That light is red, red means stop. Do not start this engine again until the problem is corrected.

Have you checked the oil level?

Flashig oil light


You either have a loose/worn engine bearing or a worn out oil pump, do not drive the car this way, you will cause serious damage to the whole engine. A oil switch is for a light, it turns on the light when oil pressure falls below about 10 PSI, a sending unit is for a guage that shows oil pressure with a scale, it may have numbers on the guage or just green and red, or high and low.
