Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

I want to check the engine oil level for previa 2.4 petrol 1995



OIL LEVEL CHECK Every time you stop for fuel, check the engine oil as follows:
  1. Park the vehicle on level ground.
  2. When checking the oil level it is best for the engine to be at operating temperature, although checking the oil immediately after a stopping will lead to a false reading. Wait a few minutes after turning off the engine to allow the oil to drain back into the crankcase.
  3. Open the hood and inspect the level of the engine oil tank. The fluid level on the tank should read between FULL or F and LOW or L.
  4. If the level is below the LOW or L line, remove the cap and add enough engine oil to reach the FULL or F line. Fig. 1: Fill the engine oil tank located under the hood first 90911p07.jpg
  5. Install the oil cap and hand tighten.
  6. After filling the oil tank, remove the engine access hole cover on the drivers side. Fig. 2: Make sure the oil tank is to the F mark 90911p15.jpg Fig. 3: The oil dipstick is located under the driver's side engine access hole cover 90911p83.jpg Fig. 4: Place your finger through the hole and pull straight up to remove 90911p84.jpg
  7. Remove the engine oil dipstick and wipe it clean.
  8. Reinsert the dipstick, push it in as far as it will go, the pull it out and look at the level on the end.
  9. If necessary, insert more oil through the oil filler cap next to the dipstick, this will completely top off the system. Fig. 5: The oil dipstick has two markings for level check 90911p85.jpg Fig. 6: To fill the crankcase, remove the engine oil filler cap 90911p86.jpg prev.gif next.gif

The oil pressure sensor light keeps coming on after the engine has heated up and driven awhile. We have replace the oil pressure switch but keep having the same problem? Any more suggestions?


. THATS USUALLY A SING OF THE OIL PUMP GOING BAD/WORN BEARING AT CRANK CAMS . WHEN ENGINES COLD THE OIL IS THICKER AND WHEN THE OIL HEATS UP IT GET THINNER CAUSING LOW ENGINE OIL PRESSURE. IF USUALLY THE LIGHTS COMES "ON" AT IDLE AT NORMAL TEMPETURE AND IT GOES AWAY WHEN ACCCELERATED. THOSE ARE SINGS OF WEAK OIL PRESSURE. ALSO CHECK THE THE WIRE TO THE OIL PRESSURE SENDER FOR RUBBING OR WEAR. HOPE THIS HELPS. THE BEST WAY TO BE SURE IS GETTING A OIL PRESSURE TESTER AT HARBOR FREIGHT THERE LIKE $20 OR SO AND TEST THE PRESSURE. AN AVERAGE SHOULD BE ABOVE 15PSI AT IDLE AND HIGHER 2500 RMS AT 22,000 35,000 PSI GOOD. HOPE THIS CAN HELP OR GIVE YOU A LEAD OR HLEP... SEND ME A FEEBACK PLEASE THANKS

Ticking motor


A ticking noise from the engine may be caused by low motor oil level in the engine. You can check the oil yourself or have an oil change shop such as Jiffy Lube look at it for you. If you check it, check with the engine off. If it is low (see owners manual for how to read the dipstick) then add 1/2 quart at a time until a 'full' reading is obtained. It is very important not to overfill the engine oil as this can cause damage to the engine.

Good Luck,

What is the best time to check the oil in my 02 saturn sl1...while it is off or running?


hi, the best time to check your oil is after the car has been standing for 15min or so due to the fact that if you check the oil whilst it is running or shortly after will give you a lower reading than it actually is due to the fact that the oil is still working its way around the engine so letting it stand will give you a true reading.

I hope this is the info you need.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

It plunges down to zero at times then reads eratic


Your oil becomes too fluid as the engine gets warmer. When the engine rotates slower at stops, the oil pump won't make pressure. At speeds, more oil is pumped and the pressure rises.
Have you recently changed your oil? Or maybe is too old. The real problem would be if you read zero at normal cruising revolutions.

Oil dipstick gives bad reading. get different readings when checking fluid level.


Check oil on a level surface, and when cold, before start up. That will give the highest level posible, because you dont want to overfill. Overfilling will cause a number of problems.
Have in mind that checking oil on a hot engine, one that has been just turned off, will have a lot of oil on the top part of engine, that has had no time to drip down, and will give a low reading.
