The likely source of your problem is the oil pump, if it is defective you won't get any pressure.

Low presure oil


first thing check is the engine oil level.if oil level okay check oil pressure should be for the 4.2 engine oil pressure should be 12 psi @ 1200 rpm for the 5.3 oil pressure should be 18 psi @ 2000 rpm if oil pressure good problem in the oil pressure sending unit. if oil pressure is low problem faulty oil pump or worn crankshaft bearings if oil pressure low engine will have rod knock.make sure you are using correct oil viscosity if oil too thick you will have low oil pressure oil too thin you will loose oil pressure.

All your gauges are working. The gas gauge Is also working. When you fill it, you will fill over the limit the fuel level switch will go by a couple of gallons. So the gauge will not drop for a few miles. until you use up the excess fuel

98 altima oil light on and off oil level fine car restarted and


If oil pressure is LOW this vehicle has a safety feature that will prevent vehicle from starting.(check oil level before you start) Now what I wan't you to do is to have the oil pressure switch checked or changed. This may be the reason why this vehicle is not starting or it can also be that the actual oil pressure is low. To check the oil pressure of the vehicle you will need an oil pressure guage. Remove the oil pressure switch and connect guage to oil pressure hole and check oil pressure while cranking vehicle.Some pressure testers can be connected to oil filter housing either is fine. If this vehicle has low oil pressure the reasons for that are bad oil pump, clogged oil pump pick up(from lack of oil change/poor mantainence) or bad connecting rod and main bearings but this usually have a warning from before (the engine will sound loud by knocking /clicking-tapping noise) It this was happening you may need to rebuild this engine or replace it. Good luck and Thanks for using FIX YA

I assume you have checked the oil for proper level? They cant be low or the thing wont start as oil is needed to fire the fuel injectors. Your gone to really have to have a scan tool that can read the oil pressure off the high presure pump. The thing will have to have about 700psi ICP pressure anything less and it will not start. You could still have a HI psi oil leak under one of the valve covers, or at the hi psi pump snap together fitting. If its big enough leak it can cause no start or symptom you are describing. Unfortunatly its complicated to find you need a scan tool, special test fitting so you can air check the hi psi oil system and listen for leaks, it can come from eithe valve cover area or under the hi psi pump.

Oil presure light comes on after driving 15 min. only when i stop. this just started after i gave it a rutine oil change. when ii turn the heater on it stops coming on .


After making sure that you used the propper oil filter and the correct grade of oil. inspect the Oil presure switch. if you see it wet with oil, replace it. given that you hear no internal engine noises, while you come to a stop and the light comes on. Then more that likely you have the wrong filter. please doubble check your oil level, 2.. Hope this helps
