Theres no way to know if the oil pressure switch is the cause, you are there to look at it, I'm not. But I would check real close the OIL COOLER. Its the housing between the oil filter and the block. There is a seal (o ring) between that housing and the engine block and I would suspect that seal leaking. Get it from the dealer, its cheap. Part number B1304-34U00

2001 Dodge Stratus R/T 3.0L V6. Motor ticks on top end while running. Every couple minutes the ticking goes away and then comes back. Timing belt is original, vehicle has 145,000 miles


A ticking noise at the top of the engine suggest either sticking/worn valve lifters or wear on camshaft lobes.

An oil change won't cure any mechanical wear, but it certainly won't do any harm either..

You can also try adding an additive to the oil. There are additives for 'quietening valve train noise'. The alternative is to remove the camshaft and lifters for inspection/replacement as necessary.

With 145, 000 miles on the clock your engine has done well - but no engine doesn't wear or suffer from the occasional fault. Maintenance such as frequent oil changes negates many problems, but wear and faults do develop.

You have the original rubberised camshaft/timing belt on a 2001 car with 145,000 on the clock? You're living on borrowed time. If that belt snaps your car is history. Scrap value. Change it...

Squeeky brakes and tire maitanence light on. I only have 32000 miles on my 2009 murano.


first check your discs and pads to see if pads are worn down or there are any score marks on the disks, also the metal antivibration shims in front of the brake pads for wear and tear.check tyres for wear wrong tyre preasures/unballanced, and steering problems can cause exesive wear on tyres.

2003 F150 4.6 w/ 90K miles using a quart of oil every 3 weeks. what's most likely cause?


A V8 engine will start to consume more oil as they get more and more
miles on them. The valve stem seals and piston rings wear, and let
more and more oil burn off in the exhaust. How many miles are you
travelling in said 3 weeks?

Oil pressure question


Hello daebbers: My name is Roger and I will be glad to help you. I assume by the way your question is written you have no objectionable engine noise. I would suspect a bad oil pressure sending unit. To check the switch will require a mechanical oil presser test. You can buy a kit at any parts store. With a cold engine. Remove the oil switch from the block. Install the mechanical gauge. after all connections are tight start the engine. Note where the pressure is at. Observe the pressure through engine warm up. As the oil and engine warm up the oil pressure will drop. According to All Data information the oil pressure at curb idle is 6 psi. This would be a min. oil pressure. If the oil pressure is higher then that is great also. Any thing less you have a internal oil leak. This would likely be a bearing issue.
PLease rate the quality of your answer. This way we know the answer you received was helpful.Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

2004 nissan murano low 3 quarts oil. no sign of a leak and no smoke.


Hard city driving during the hot summer can and will cause a bit of oil usage. 1 qt in 500 miles is not excessive. If you recently changed oil and are using a different brand this also can cause a bit of oil usage, due to the engine getting used to it. Add to full and keep a good ck on it, it should level out. if not check your air filter, pvc valve, and any vaccume hoese.

04 murano right side engine rattle


Hello windy....There are a few thing on the murano that could cause this... one is the exhaust gussets that go to the bottom of the oil pan to the exhaust, they can crack and cause a rattling noise. Also I have seen the rear exhaust heat shield spot welds come loose and cause a rattling noise, from exhaust manifold down pipe on the cat. converter. I would check them first, also the park brake cable will lose tension and rattle on the undercarriage.
A more serious problem would be the timing chain and/or chain tensioners...these are known to make noise around 50-60k. The tensioners are operated from oil pressure, the face gets worn, the chain stretches and it results in a rattle or a slapping noise
Useing a full synthetic oil with regular maintaince will help prevent premature wear.
Good luck, i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.
