2004 Freestyle Engine won't turn over.


The oil light started coming on and off after an oil change. The car was parked by the road idling when it just suddenly stopped. The starter won't even crank the motor anymore. Do you think the engine could be seized? Has anybody else had this happen?

Oil light comes on after the engine has been running for a while. Only comes on when I stop and the engine idles under 1000 rpm. There is not leak under my car parking spot, i checked oil level it is ok...


if the oil level is fine, it could be just be a bad pressure sending unit or something more sinister like a blocked oil passage, spun engine bearing or a failed/ failing oil pump. I think this is life threatening serious for your engine. have a shop check it out.

Oil light comes on and off when in park idling. oil level is fine.


Sounds like a weak oil pump at higher rpm the pump creates more pressure which is adaquate to make the light go out and supply oil to the engine. At lower rpm your oil pump is not creating the pressure needed. Be carefull not to let it idle or sit in park to long this could damage the engine. There is oil pressure sending unit also this is what makes the light come on and it also shows the oil pressure on the oil gage on dash if your vehicle is equipped with gage. The sending unit could be faulty, but play it safe and have your mechanic diagnose the problem.

My son just bought a 1986 cadillac deville and the "stop engine oil" light comes on whenever he stops the car. Any ideas, a bad sensor, I hopr?


Well, if you say that when he stops the car, but the engine still running (idling) - that "stop engine oil" light comes on, it could mean that the oil pump can no longer maintain the minimum oil pressure to the critical areas of the motor at an idle.
If the light goes out with a higher idle (driving the car) that is a good indication of a worn out motor.
be sure the oil is at the full mark, not below or above the full mark. Make sure the oil and filter are new. The sender units for the oil lights rarely go out - but it is possible.

01 chevy cavalier: oil light coming on when car is stopping


Could be that your Oil pump is getting clogged or may not be fuctioning properly. Isnt getting enough power while at a low idle because its clogged.... When your stopped or in your driveway with the light on put your car in neutral and set the parking break and rev the motor up to 2200 RPM's and see if the light turns off.. If i does then that is most likely your problem.
