Sounds like a costly repair. Check engine compression. Sometimes, the piston ring gap align having it as a broken piston rings but actually not. Check the color of the smoke, since it is fed by diesel fuel. If you see something like a blue smoke then it's eating your oil.

Mitsibushi pajero oil light time


White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

2001 jeep cheokee limited, straight v6, 4.0 liter engnie - oil pressure is droping to 20 when stopping and rising to 40-50 when accelerating. No check engine light is coming on when this occurs. Any idea...


A low reading of 20psi is not dangerous. As an engine wears, clearances increase and allow some oil to escape out the sides of the bearings. Even at 15 psi you would still be OK.
There are several other causes for a low reading. Make sure the oil is not contaminated with fuel (smell the oil on the dipstick). If the oil has been in service too long, pressure can also drop...Oil has a VI rating (viscosity index). Especially in inexpensive oils this index is maintained by additive packages added to the oil base. Those additives break down from heat and shearing forces inside the engine.
If you are using any 5w oil (except synthetic) discontinue using it. Even in colder climates, most engines don't need anything that thin. Most synthetic oils are thinner than conventional lubricants and will give low readings...in that case, it's not a problem because they are so far superior that there is no sacrifice in protection.
As far as the difference between at idle pressure and at speed pressure, that is normal. Your oil pump is driven off the camshaft. As the engine rpm's increase the pump spins faster, giving you higher pressure as needed. When I build any engine, I always use a high pressure high volume pump. Even with those, idle pressure is lower than driving pressure and pressure always becomes slightly lower as the oil heats up.
So, the pressures you see are good, providing you hear no noises. Use a good quality oil 10w or 20w (better) as a first # and no less than 30 as the second number. If you want to add your own additive package, Use Lucas oil stabilizer or a small amount of marvel oil. Lucas will increase the VI number and marvel is a good cleaner as well as the fact that it seeks out hot spots where other oils run from them. Change your oil at 3,000 to 4,000 miles (depends on how hard you drive), Always use a good quality oil filter and you should not have a problem
