Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette
We took a trip last August to Jax. Its anot 200 miles away. When we got back home we had an oil leak and a tapping noise had to replace the oil pressure switch. IT took care of the oil leak and tapping.
This past week we went to Daytona Beach which is about 250 miles away. When we got there we developed an oil leak and a tapping noise and had to have the oil pressure switch replaced once again and again it took care of the oil leak and tapping noise.
WE came home yesterday and this morning I got up and cranked the van to go to the store and it had a tapping noise but no oil leak.
Well My husband went to the parts store and got another oil pressure switch and bought a socket and replaced it himself.
Apparently it wasn't the oil pressure switch this time because its still tapping. Any suggestions on what it might be thats causing the tapping and how can we tell if its getting oil to the the engine.
It sounds like the oil pressure is too high.have someone check for clogged blow-by hoses or connections.some blow-by connections have screens in them tha can become clogged with dust or oil deposits.also check for places where dust can enter into the engine,such as,air filters and air hoses that may be loose or damaged.
