The check engine light would come on just as the engine dies under normal conditions.

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.

2004 lincoln avaitor oil light comes on the engine shuts down


Does the oil light come on BEFORE the engine shuts down? I have to ask because it is NORMAL for the oil light to be on when the engine is not running. I had a customer that said the same thing just last week. After we wasted a bunch of time (which the customer ended-up paying for) checking the oil level, the oil pressure, and verifying correct oil pressure gauge, light, and sending unit operation, it turned out that the crankshaft position sensor was bad and causing the engine to shut down and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the oil light - it was functioning as designed.

If the oil light is coming on before the engine shuts down, the first thing you need to do is check your oil level. If the oil level is OK, you need to check the oil pressure with a gauge to determine if there is an actual engine oil pressure problem or if the oil pressure sending unit, gauge or light is malfunctioning. Also, it is highly advisable to not drive the vehicle AT ALL if the oil pressure light is coming on while driving until the cause of the light coming on has been determined and repairs have been made. Otherwise, SEVERE ENGINE DAMAGE may result.

How do I get the changes light to shut off in my 2004 grand am


With ignition key off, turn it back on up to where the dash lights come on but DON'T start engine. Push gas pedal to the floor 3 times, that should reset the change oil light for next service. Then turn ignition back off.

check engine lite does not come on when oil change is due. This usually happens when there is an emissions problem.

At red light engine seems like it wants to cut off.


try changing your pcv valve. if its dirty it may be causing the shuttering. as for the check engine light going on and off, you may have a bad gas cap. if the cap is faulty it will cause the engine light to come on at times because of a poor air to fuel ratio.

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

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.

1997chevylumina3.1 check engine light on after


You can reset the light by disconnecting the negative battery cable for about 30 minutes. If there is still an issue with the car after running the car after reconnecting the battery it will come back on. You will need to have it checked with diagnostic tool.

Check engine light after every oil change 2005 Honda


This happens because the oil filter needs to be free of air. When the oil pressure sensor drops below a certain value it shuts off the injectors because the PCM. This is a good feature because if you run out of oil for any reason it should stop the engine before damage occurs.
