You may have cooked the fuel pump. Cars today use a fuel pump in the gas tank. The pump uses gasoline for both lube and to help keep the pump cool. Anytime the tank is below 1/4 the pump is working harder and running hotter than normal. If you drove it for 2 hours low on fuel, the pump may have died. I would check the fuel pump relay to make sure the pump is getting power, if it is not, you can bypass the relay to verify it is not a pump problem.
Possible causes of the oil light coming on are - low oil pressure dirt in the passage behind the oil pressure switch a faulty oil pressure switch. Most people either replace the switch or have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.
the engine light can come on for many reasons.....from your petrol cap not being put back on properly to a major engine fault......so it is hard to diagnose what it might be....if you take the car to an auto parts place, some will read the code for you for free, and then you can make your decision from then....this is the only piece of advice I am able to provide with this information....
hi from uk the 1st thing to do is check for coolant leak/s you mentioned that you filled up coolant first time o/heated then 10miles and o/heat and loss of coolant ? so there hopefully is a coolant leakage which can easily be fixed diy ? once you locate leakage come back with info so we can help/advise ? then the other question is what is other possible senario ? possible head gasket ? or the water pump which is driven by the cambelt is leaking these possibilities will cost more to fix by garage but not beyond diy if you wish to ?? the point thatdrove 50 mls home ok then another 10 mls b4 you checked coolant ?? oil etc ? rquires some thought as to was this reason for selling ? due to some coolant leakage that prev owner knew of but could not finance repair ? it is not my intention to worry you at this stage but sincerly hope it is a simply fault as i mentioned above SO if you check things i listed and oil level etc also look for any sign that work has recently been done around engine ie clean parts etc if you find anything by all means come back with as much info /symptoms as you can then hopefully we can sort this for you keep thinking positive waves! not negative ps just had a thought! last night here in n/west uk there was very severe frost/freeze and if you had same at your location ? you may have suffered frozen pump / rad / hoses ? resulting in the symptoms you have once engine warms hopefully so will keep finger crossed for you please update best wishes from uk
The reason for the light to come on an the after you have switched the vehicle off and back on again and the engine light stays dead is because the control units of the vehicle will reset when the ignition is switched off for 10sec. If the light stays off the it might be that the car got a wrong reading from a sensor and caused the engine light to come on. If it was a serious problem the light would have come on again
