Could be a couple of different things.

First off, check your oil level....is it correct? (I know, kinda stupid of me, but I had to ask)

Just because you have oil doesn't mean the oiling system is working.
On thing you can do is remove oil tank cap, using a flashlight look down into the tank and see if you can notice oil being pumped back into the tank.
Or, you can pull the oil sending unit and see it oil pumps out the hole when the engine runs (this WILL be messy!).

Or, pull the oil return line at the oil tank.
IF you pull the feed line by mistake, you'll know!
Oil will run out the tank fitting until the tank runs out of oil! (opps, wrong line!)
When you pull the return line, you should get just some residual oil out the tank fitting (and the line).
Put the end of the line in a container and see if oil squirts out when the engine runs.

If all the above indicate oil IS circulating, the oil sending unit itself might be bad. They do occasionally go out.

Clicks but won t turn over


Most likely a bad or low battery or bad connection or bad solenoid or starter or combination of any of them. Those lights will mostly stay on till the engine cranks before going off.

I have a 1998 4wd automatic toyota 4runner and it won't start. The engine turns but won't "ignite" the engine light and A/T oil temp light appear on dashboard. any suggestions on what to check


Hi Nikki, What oil was low? Was it engine oil or gear box oil? Did the engine overheat? what exactly happened? Did you hear any strange noises when the engine stopped? Was the vehicle towed or was it on the back of a recovery vehicle? If it was towed, at what speed and over what distance? What engine is fitted? Is it petrol or diesel powered? Give as many details as possible to help us help you. Regards John

How to reset the change oil light on 2001 chevrolet suburban LS


Turn the ignition key to on position, but do not start the vehicle.
Wait for the "change oil light" to come on
Tap the throttle pedal three times quickly
Wait for the light to flash several times, then go out.
Start the car and drive and it won't come back on.

It usually works the first time, but repeat if light stays on.

How old is the belt that turns the alternator? Any whining sounds as motor revs up and down? If your belt is old and frayed, it might not be fully turning the alternator pulley...Hope this helps.

Done cars have a kill switch if they are low on oil. Check your oil. If the oil is good, it may be the ignition switch.

Don't try start the engine when the oil light turn on, it would harm your piston, camshaft and crankshaft
It should be the oil pump has broken and need to replace, tow your car to the nearest service center

Hi, HOsscat77 #2 looks good for this issue otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Insufficient oil level or no oil in engine or tank.
2. Air in oil system that needs to be bled.
3. Blockage in the oil tank or line.
4. Oil pump failure.
5. Faulty oil pressure sending unit.
6. Grounded oil pressure light circuit.
