Knocking noise when in drive and stopped.

1st thing - DO NOT DRIVE as you may be low/out of fluid.

Check both your automatic transmission fluid and your engine oil level. Both should be described in the owner's manual.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha

Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

Will experienced Honda owners share best practices with a young family driving a 2004 Accord?

Tire-Go by the label on the door jam on the driver's door
Oil-Follow the manufacturer's recommendation in the owner's manual
Maintenance-Today's cars usually come with a maintenance schedule. Follow the proper maintenance for the mileage your car currently has on it.
If that puppy has only 45,000 miles on it, the timing chain shouldn't have to be replaced until it's between 120,000 and 150,000 miles.

How do i reset / remove the "change oil" message thats showing up on my Navg screen. The oil and the filter were changed 3 days ago....pls help

you can reset your oil change light by pressing the "maintenance" button below the "navigation screen" and make sure that you are not driving becasue it will not let you reset it. And once at the "oil change" screen, just hold the "trip reset" button for a few seconds and YOU'RE GOOD TO GO! and you can also change the miles in between the "check oil light," once at the screen just use the "left/right" buttons and make it go anywehre from 3000-10,000 i believe, but it may go less or more. hope this helped!
These instructions can also be found in your owners manual if needed again.
If this was helpful please give it a thumbs up to help others.

Got a message on dashboard "Stop Engine". What

More than 90% of the folks with this problem just need a simple throttle body cleaning to keep the RPM steady at 600 RPM. Some owners need to do the process every 30K miles. If you're up at 100K or more and it's never been cleaned, you'll find the backside of the throttle body is really dirty.

If the symptoms keep showing you may need to change your oil pressure sensor. Whey you buy the part you will see how easy it is.

We recently upgraded our oil so that we only have to change the oil every 5000 miles instead of 3000 miles. We are also now seeing on our odometer screen "Oil Pressure Low - Stop Engine Now". ...

I would not drive the car. I would have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure gauge to verify that you really have an oil pressure problem. There is a possibility that the oil pressure sensor or wiring is bad causing the light to come on. Hope this helps :)

The engine seems to have oil, but the light is on in my 1995 nissan altima

The oil light means you have low oil pressure but not necessarily low oil.
Low oil pressure can lead to serious engine problems and should be fixed right away.
