After you turn the car off, press the Accelerator all the way to the floor and release it all the way back three time really fast. Then turn the car back on. If it's not three times, try five times. One of them works. I do this for my car too.

Engine malfunction light came on with low oil pressure when i started car. engine light stayed on. do i just need an oil change


you need to have the oil pressure checked by using a mechanical oil pressure gauge
that will determine if it is a pump problem or an oil gauge sender unit
changing the oil will not fix the problem
you should be doing oil and filter changes every 10,000 miles and then that oil change suggestion would not figure in the problem
your problem is either mechanical or electrical but you need to determine which before you damage the engine

2006 jeep liberty dying randomly. Oil change and new air filter. About to change spark plugs and wires. No gauge lights, no sputtering. Just turns off randomly, starts right back up when I put in neutral...


My 2006 Liberty has a similar issue. The oil light beeps and then the engine shuts off. I put the car in park and it restarts and the oil light goes off. I had the oil, filter, and lines checked and everything checked out. The mechanic thinks it may be the oil sensor going out and that for safety reasons the engine shuts down when the oil light comes on.

Cant figure out oil leak on 96 jimmy oil .seems to be by the filter but not filter and where lines by oilfilter go to engine maybe???????????


Clean the area of any oil/ dirt. Remove oil filter and check only one round seal. Sometimes when filters changed the original seal can be left on. Replace and tighten filter and start engine. Have a light handy and watch the area for any leaks.

Try starting doesn't seem to want to turn over try a few time usually start after a couple of time dignontic done could not fine problem started everytime started today did uturn then died now change...


You have several different problems.
First, the starter...if you are hearing a loud "click" several times before the starter engages and cranks the engine, you have a bad starter solenoid and you need to replace your starter.

The dying problem could be caused by a WHOLE LIST of things. It could be anything from a bad Idle Air Control (IAC) motor to a fuel pump that works when it wants to, or a bad Crankshaft Position sensor circuit, etc. Unless it sets a fault code in the computer or does it on a regular basis, you will probably never figure this one out.

The Change Oil light is simple: You just need to reset your oil change reminder. Sometimes it doesn't get reset when the oil change gets done and then comes on only a few miles after an oil change. This is very common - it even happens at my shop sometimes. If the oil change reminder light is not on when a customer brings the car to me for an oil change, I don't think to reset it. Not all cars have them, and of those that do, half the customers reset the light themselves. I simply do not always take the time to look it up and see if it even has one. They are different depending on what kind of vehicle you have, so I cannot tell you how to reset yours because you forgot to mention what kind of vehicle you have...YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE SIZE, etc. (This would be nice to know if you really want help fixing your car.)

Indicator lights for oil ABS, etc., won't turn off in 2000 Pontiac Montana. Tried the turn ignition on, push accessorator pedal to floor thing others had mentioned and it didn't help unfortunately. Any...


I really need to know exactly which lights are on. If it is the change oil in the information box then you turn the ignition switch on, push the gas pedal down fully 3 times, turn the ign off. Then start the car and if it does not come on, then it has been reset. Sometimes you have to do that several times before it will reset, not sure why. I'm not sure what you mean by ABS and etc.

The engine oil level is fine and the oil light is on.


This can be a few different things. I'll give you a couple. First, do you have an oil pressure gauge? If you do, watch it very closely. Specifically while accelerating, braking, and making turns... so, pretty much, all the time except when cruising. If you don't have one, you'll just have to watch the light. More than likely you are losing oil pressure and it has nothing to do with oil level. If it comes on more when the car is idling, but tends to go off when it's revved up, the oil pump may be going out or may be leaking. It could be that it's pickup line is getting clogged, but don't count on it. It could also be a clogged oil filter, but again, not likely. Change your oil AND filter first and foremost, even if you've done it recently. Then watch the light while the car is idling and while revving it SLIGHTLY. BE CAREFUL!!! If you're temperature gauge starts going up or your check engine light comes on, shut it OFF. Lack of oil pressure leads to blown engines. You don't want to spend 3-5K on a new one. Get the thing checked out. One more thing. When you get your oil changed, ask the mechanic to reset your car's oil change computer. Many newer cars will show an oil light when it's time to change the oil. If it's not reset, it won't know it was changed and will stay on. I hope this is your problem. Good luck with everything.

Oil light still on after oil change.


Could be a bad oil sending unit. Check to make sure it is not leaking. If you don't hear the motor start knocking when the light comes on, most likely not an internal problem, but an electrical problem.

2006 Dodge Durango Oil light comes on


It might be faulty oil pressure sensor or bad oil pump, but might be adressed to recent oil change. Sometimes oil get viscouse in winter and cause oil light to come on. For winter the recommended one is 5W-30
Oil light should come on for less then a second during starting the car. If it comes longer or when you push the brake it might be the sign of bad oil (sometimes), faulty oil pressure sensor (mosty), bad oil pump (often) or internal engine problem (very rare).
Good Luck

"Change oil soon" light


Turn your key to the on position wait until all of your indicater lamps do their thing . Then pump the gas pedal 3 times in rapid motion in less than 5 seconds.
