When you turn left or right sounds like your CV joints on the drive shaft. They may need replacing. Your oil problem could be a faulty oil pressure sensor or a failing oil pump. These need checking out by someone who knows what they are doing. If the oil pump fails, you may end up needing a replacement engine.

Either you have a lubrication problem or a bad oil pressure sender. You need to have it scanned for DTC and do an oil pressure test before you seize your engine.

Bring this vehicle into a shop as soon as possible. The beeping noise may be your oil pressure switch telling you there is a problem. Pretty soon the vehicle may not start. I'm not sure if this sensor is tied into ignition system.

Red oil light flashing, oil change no problem but light still flashing noise coming from tappets are they related


you will have to check your oil pressure with an oil pressure gauge. it could be a problem with your oil pump ( or a blocked gauze on the oil pump) and the tappets noise is related to the oil pressure.

Engine sensor on the dash board turns on randomly


Hi. either the oil is low, or the oil pump not working properly. Check the oil level to see if it's full, and if it is, you might want to consider replacing the oil pump. Hope this works for you
