If you have an oil pressure sensor light that keeps coming on even, if you have just filled up your oil tank to the optimized level, then there's a good chance that it's the oil pressure sensor that's not working. If the light sensor is coming on and off while you are driving, it's most likely a faulty oil pressure sensor. But to make sure, always check your oil tank whenever the light comes on again. If the oil level is still up to the desired level, then it's definitely an oil pressure sensor. This calls for an oil pressure sensor replacement, which is far better than having an engine repaired. It will only cost a couple of bucks to replace a sensor. if above fails, have the oil pressure checked it could be a plugged up oil pump. have a good day !! check the wiring to sensor also.

    It could be leaking. Or it could be shorted internally. Or it could be sludged internally. Or the wires that go to it could be shorted. All of these will send various erratic signals to the guage.

Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

your computer can have those codes stored in memory although theres nothing actually wrong. you can unplug your battery for about five minutes then hook it back up this should free the codes out of the system.also if youve traveled more than 30,000 miles id relpace the plugs in do a complete tune up.

I have a 1992 chevy lumina z34, its not getting fuel to the injectors or the injectors or opening. I have fuel pressure. up to where you check for pressure on the fuel rail. it just died when I was driving...


Have you checked that engine oil level is okay, if so check that oil pressure switch is good. The switch is usually bypassed to start the engine, but it won't run with no oil pressure indicated...hope this helps

How do i change the oil on my 01 vw gti vr6


This engine requires synthetic oil, 5 quarts, and oil filter. Remove dip stick, remove oil drain plug at bottom of engine oil pan, remove filter housing, remove oilf filter and o-ring. Replace o-ring and filter, rub o-ring with some new oil, replace filter housing, replace oil drain plug, pour new oil in at top of engine oil cap, replace dip stick, start engine, run for 45 seconds, turn off, check dip stick to make sure oil is at correct level. You are done, recycle old oil.
