SOURCE: oil

Check the oil level, check that there is no leak and that oil is not being consumed inside the engine.
If oil is low it can be because of a bad gasket, a broken oill filter, or engine is getting old and starts burning oil inside the cylinders, you see black smoke from exhaust when this happen.

If you just want to reset the warning you can unplug battery cables for ten minutes. You mey be asked car stereo security code when connecting back.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 Chrysler Concorde and the Oil sensor

I'm betting that this is the 2.7L engine. If it is, you may have caught this in time. There is a very good possibility that the oil pump intake has become plugged with sludge. You will have to have the oil pan removed so that the pick-up can be cleaned and the engine flushed out. After that you must use synthetic oil. This was a huge problem, lawsuits galore. Google: "2.7L sludge" for more info.

Just bought a 2000 pontiac Gt with 110000 miles on it two days ago. Ive driven it 137 miles before the service engine soon light came on. What do you think it is


The service engine light is usually a flag for an oil change or other maintenance item. If it is reset, it will come back on in 5000 miles as a reminder to change the oil. Ask your dealer's service department how to reset the indicator and do it when you change your oil. I know for Saturn, the proceedure is Turn the key to the on position without starting the engine and within 5 seconds press the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor 3 times. Not sure if it will be the same for the Pontiac, but you could give it a try.

At 28,066 dealer oil change. At 28,778 dealer flushed engine to remove sludge build up and changed oil. At 30,835 miles inspection, dealer flushed engine to clean out sludge and changed oil. At 34,630...


First dealer was NOT doing you any justice. Next oil change run a can of GUNK engine flush let idle 5-10 mins then change Oil & Filter and use a good oil like Castrol or Valvoline 10w-30. You won't have "supposed" sludge build up.

How often should i change my oil in a suzuki sx4 2008 crossover? and will an oil light come on when it needs changed?


every 3000 miles or 3 months. You should change it before the light comes on. Unless you are using synthetic oil.

My oil light comes on every so often, breifly.


Check the Oil Pressure Sensor. It is located to the left of the Oil Filter. Check the connection, then remove, clean the sensor, reinstall and check operation again. If this does not work, remove again and replace this Sensor. Based on miles (130K) it is about time for a new one.
I'm not a big believer in synthetic oil, but that is my own opinion. I used exactly what is recommended.
If this does not fix the problem, then you should check for a leak. When checking the Oil Pressure Sensor: also check to see if the Oil Filter is tight enough. Was a light coat of fresh oil applied to the rubber o-ring gasket before putting on?
Let me know if this helped, or if you have addtional information or questions. Feel free to contact me on FixYa.com!

Light is on even after changing the oil in my 2000 alero


I had the same problem, after bringing it to the mechanic I got a $30 charge for him to tell me that oldsmobile have a setting that does not refresh the sensor light after you get an oil change and to reset in on the fuse, it will continute to go on every 2000 miles. The fuse is located next to the drives side door under the dash board. Hope this helps :-)

Oil light on 99' Jetta TDI


Hi,
The "oil light" is actually a "low oil pressure" light, and not a "low oil level" light. I would get it checked out at a garage asap.
Did they change the filter at the same time? D
