Oil pressure high, oil level low


Oil pressure and oil level are two different creatures.

your oil gauge determines oil pressure while the oil can (red light on dash) indicates oil levels.

There are usually two different sensors but can gauge the same types of things. E.G. - If your oil is so low that your pressure gauge is affected this can cause engine failure. Thus--a good rule of thumb is to check your oil once a week as the oil pressure gauge and red oil can may not always work as intended.

I hope this helps!

How do you change oil filter


The oil filter is a can shaped object that is screwed into the side of the engine.
You need an oil filter removal tool that wraps a strap around the oil filter so you can unscrew the oil filter in an anti-clockwise direction. When the oil filter is loosened you will get some oil spillage.
When you replace the oil filter, apply a little fresh oil on the rubber o-ring seal before you screw the oil filter back onto the engine. Do not over tighten the oil filter as you can damage the o-ring seal and cause the oil to leak out of the engine when the engine is running.
After installing the new oil filter I suggest you start the engine and let it run until the engine warms up, then check the oil filter to see if there is any oil leaks from the oil filter (between the engine and the oil filter). If it leaks and you have not tighened the oil filter enough then screw the filter a little tighter/

Oil lamp continuously on despite oil change


When the oil lamp lights - it means there's no oil pressure. This can be even with dipstick oil level at the maximum mark. No oil pressure can be caused by a broken oil pump or the oil pump suction pipe clogged up or loose in the oil sump.

Also the oil pressure sensor can be broken - Check it from the sensor, connector and the cable onwards.

In any case get this issue fixed before driving too far.

Whats the purpose of an oil pressure switch can it determine weather oil leaks from your grand prix or not?


The oil pressure switch or sending unit is a unit that receives an electrical signal showing what your cars oil pressure is.And yes it does partially does let you know when there is a problem somewhere in the oil system.For example if your filter gets clogged up your oil pressure will go down and then go up when you accelerate.If there was a leak in the system first you would probably see the leak And if the oil pump or oil pump shaft were to break you would have no oil pressure.So you can see the importance of having an oil pressure switch.I feel there are 2 guages that are important to watch are your oil guage and water temp guage they can tell you allot about how your car is operating.

What is the procedure for oil change on 2009 range rover sport,and where is the location of the Oil drain plug?


Hi,

Never change your oil while the engine is hot! Let it cool for a few hours, oil can burn you badly.

Be sure you have a safe area to do your oil change. Level, solid ground is a must so that you can safely jack up your car. I also like to put something on the driveway or garage floor underneath the engine in case you spill. Cardboard or a piece of plywood are great for this.
Before you even start to do your oil change, be sure you have everything you need to get the job done.

What You'll Need
  • Ratchet or open end wrench
  • Oil filter wrench
  • Oil catch/recycle container
  • Funnel
  • New oil filter
  • New Oil
  • Clean rag
The first step in an oil change is to get the old stuff out of there. The oil drains out of the oil pan at the very bottom of your engine. The oil is held in by a drain plug that looks like a big bolt at the bottom of the pan.

Before you remove the oil drain plug, be sure that your recycling container is positioned underneath the oil drain. An oil change can be no fun if most of your time is spent cleaning up oil. When you remove the drain plug, let it drop into the top of the recycling container. There's a screen on top that will keep it from dropping into the muck.
Let all of the oil drain out, then replace the drain plug, tightening it to your cars torque specifications (or "snug but not too hard" if you are sans torque wrench.)
Put the cap on the oil recycling container so you can drop it off at a location that accepts used oil -- most full service gas stations accept it.

Next you need to remove your old oil filter. Using an oil filter wrench, turn the filter counterclockwise until it's free. Be careful with it, it's still full of old oil that can spill and make a mess. Some oil filters can be reached from the top, but for most you'll have to be under the car.

With the old oil out and the old filter out of the way, it's time to put the change in oil change. But before you install the new oil filter, you have to prep it. Before you screw the new oil filter into place, lubricate the rubber gasket on the end of the filter with some new oil. Next, fill the new oil filter with oil to about 2/3. It's ok if you go over that amount, it just means you might spill a bit when you screw it on.

Carefully screw the new oil filter into place. Remember, it has oil in it so don't forget to hold it upright. It screws on clockwise. You don't need a wrench to install the new oil filter. Screw it on as tight as you can get it with one hand. Overtightening the oil filter can strip its threads and cause a leak. Of course, not tightening it enough can cause a leak. So screw it on as tight as it will go with one hand, but no more.

Now you're ready to fill the engine with oil. Unscrew the oil fill cap and insert your funnel. I like to buy the 5-quart containers of oil (cheaper) but if you're using single quarts that's fine, too. Check your owner's manual to find out how much oil your engine holds. Pour a little more than 3/4 that amount into the engine. For example, if your car holds 4 quarts of oil, add 3 1/2.
If you're using a 5-quart container of oil, there is a guide on the side that shows how much oil you've put in.
You're not finished yet so don't drive off.

We didn't add all the oil because there may still be a little oil here and there we didn't account for. Check your oil and add more until you're at the right level.
Be sure to put your oil cap back on! Oil spray can cause a fire.

Best regards.

My 1996 audi A6 has an oil sending unit problem...can you tell me what that might take to fix and why would this show leaking oil? I thought this part was inside the oil pan?


The oil pressure sender unit is located on the oil filter housing.These do tend to leak at times. The warning light for this switch is a red oil can and a buzzer. Replace the switch. If warning light still comes on, have the oil pressure checked. The oil level sender warning light is an orange oil can with oil level under it. This sender is fitted on the bottom of the oil sump and can leak past the seal. If warning light comes on, check oil level. If ok, check for damage to wiring under vehicle. Senders do some times become faulty.

Loss of oil pressure


Loss of oil pressure can be any of the following: defective oil gauge, defective oil gauge sending unit, defective oil pump, worn rod and main bearings, plugged oil pickup screen, insufficient oil in engine hole in oil pickup tube, etc. Many issues can cause low oil pressure. Take it to a mechanic for proper diagnosis.

Unsteady oil pressure...fills with oil often...oil pressure so low car will stall and lock while driving...shops can find nothing....need help fast


Are you saying it is burning oil and you keep having to add oil? If so, it is apparent the engine my need an overhaul. The oil pump needs replacing also. Could be the engine was neglected by the previous owner and the oil was not changed at regular intervals. This can cause the oil passages to clog and also cause worn main & rod bearings along with crankshaft journals. The oil pump does not create pressure it only creates flow and the pressure is created by resistance of the oil flowing through orifices and by the amount of clearance between rod bearings and journals. If it is not burning allot of oil try this. Purchase a can of Seafoam engine treatment at almost any auto parts store. Change your oil & filter. Use the correct weight oil and a good filter such as Purolator or Wix. Add one can to the oil as instructed on the can. Follow the directions on the can and repeat the procedure 3 times making sure you Change the oil & filter each time. This may clean out the engine oil passages if this is the problem. If this does not help and changing to a quality filter does not help, you may need an engine overhaul. Of course the oil pump screen can also be clogged or the pump can be worn. The Seafoam may clear the oil pump screen. It is worth trying before you go to the expense of an overhaul.
