OIL LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON?


See my answer to your related/same question which I include again for your reference:
You must immediately check your engine oil level and take appropriate action: unless you have a defective oil pressure sensor, oil pressure light usually indicates that your engine oil is not flowing properly. Some possible issues: low oil level (leaking engine?), blocked oil filter (when did you last get your car service) or defective or blocked oil pump due to excessive dirty engine oil.
Also check under your car to see if you have any oil leaks: this usually indicate that you have defective engine gaskets or oil seals causing your oil (pressure) warning light to come on.
Hope it is of assistance. But I would consult a motor mechanic asap as you engine could soon fail due to the lack adequate oil lubrication.

Coolant in oil


Some place the coolant flows is through an area with oil in it, and the 2 mix, this indicates the gasket is defective or the part is cracked or otherwise not sealing. Cylinder head gaskets can cause this and often do.

Oil in coolant Dodge truck 5.7


Color of oil? Dark, is engine oil, looks more red, transmission oil. If engine oil, head gasket/intake gasket may be defective and leaking. If more of a red shade, transmission oil mixing in rad, as transmission is cooled through radiator. Faulty rad will cause them to mix.

Loss of oil in 1997 Mitsubishe Starwagon


Hi David, Some oil leakages occur only when the engine is running. As you've had the vehicle on a hoist lift and inspected underneath and discovered no major signs of leakage I suggest you start the engine and with the vehicle stationery, press the accelerator pedal so the engine is at about two thousand six hundred Revolutions per minute (RPM) With the engine running at that speed observe the exhaust. I believe you will then see bluish gray smoke being omitted. If I'm correct it will mean an engine rebuild as the smoke will indicate oil burn and defective piston rings. Indecently the usual cause is poor servicing and neglecting to replace the air filter. Regards John

Oil leak 2000 alero, just replaced plug, not it, leaked out all the oil after I drove it 20 miles, please help, could it be a gasket or what


Check the oil filter. The old gasket might be stuck on the engine (two gaskets stuck together), or the new gasket might be defective, misaligned or missing.

Where is the commen oil leak on a 97 ford taurus


Maybe, maybe not, It's most likely a bad rear seal or worn main bearings but check the oil filter just to be safe. Sometimes things go wrong when changing the oil filter that can cause similar symptoms.
1) old gasket left behind.
2) cross threaded filter.
3) loose filter.
4) damage gasket or defective new filter.

What would cause a drop in oil pressure without any visible leak


the pressure bypass valve in the oil pump leaking by and not closing completely to make the pump build full pressure,or the pump is working and the sending unit is giving you a false reading,then you should have a mechanic put on a gauge to see actual pressure of the pump,don't wait cause if pressure is actually that low you will sustain engine damage soon

Engine burning smoke from underside, temperature gauge going up hyundai accent 1997


Smoke could be caused by a leak from head gaskets, replace head gasket, k. Temperature increase could be caused by a defective thermostat or a slightly plugged radiator. Clean radiator and thermostat.
