Transmission over temp light comes on. transmission works fine but once went into limp mode


have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal faults. Any high pressure leaks will cause heat. check the filter and while the pan is off adjust the bands and clutch packs . Check the radiator cores are not blocked as engine temperature will affect the transmission oil temperature . check oil level as extra oil will cause frothing and over heating.

Hi, My name is Norma. I drive a 2005 Dodge Neon. The oil can light on the dash board keeps turning on... I drive for a few miles and on a stop sign or red light when I press the brakes that's when...


Is your oil level low? If your oil pressure is low as indicated by the light, you will do serious damage to your engine if you continue to drive without repairing the fault. The fault could run the gamut from a loose oil pickup, to a bda oil pump to bad bearings.

I HAVE A LIGHT ON MY DASH ITS A ORANGE OIL CAN


Check the fluid level and change the oil if you've used the car 3,000 mi. or more.

Usually low oil pressure lights are red and are more serious than the amber lights.

VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash


Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:
  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

WHEN DO I DHANGE THE OIL? HOW MANY MILES TO


manufacturer recomends every 5000 miles, I personaly recomend every 3 thousond miles and always use the toyota brand oil filter or you will be replacing the timing chain early. If your oil indicator light is on then check the level of oil. If it is low this will cause it to come on, also if the oil gets too thin from not being changed it will lower the oil pressure making the light come on, worst case is the oil pump can go out and the light will come on because of no oil pressure.

Bmw 323 'r' reg e36 engine oil light flashing


your oil pressure switch is a great place to start. since the oil was really thick you could have a horrible oil sludge problem. about 50-100 miles before your next oil change take a bottle of Transmission Fluid and dump in with your oil. and Drive for the remaning 50-100 miles with the Trany fluid still in the oil. The Transmission Fluid is a great Cleaner for sludge.
hope this helped you

2002 audi a4 oil light issue


There are potentially two different problems here.
1. A fault with the actual oil pressure.
2. An electrical fault with the switching circuit.

If you are confident the problem is not with the oil pressure, disconnect the wiring from the switch for a period of time. If the light still comes on periodically the fault must be with the wiring circuit shorting to earth. There will be no fire hazard to this approach as the voltage will drop over dash lamp.

However if the problem is with the oil supply system, the danger with this approach is you are potentially unaware of a serious problem

Such as the oil filter collapsed or the oil pressure release spring could be jammed open/closed which would cause the engine to not have the correct operating pressure.

Red Warning Light is on!!! What does it mean?


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

On most vehicles, a red warning light indicates need for immediate attention. One area that this light would indicate would be oil level and/or oil pressure. On most bikes, the red light would show when IGN is first switched on telling the rider that the oil is not pumping. Once the engine has started this should go out indicating that the oil is circulating. In other bikes, the red indicator could represent the level of a 2T oil. In such instances, if it comes on with just switching on the IGN, then this indicates that there is little or no 2T oil in the reservoir. So this would be really be dependent on the make & model, whether a 4 stroke or a 2 stroke. Note: running a 2 stroke engine with little or no 2T oil in the fuel mix would result to burned pistons, rings and an overheated engine.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Oil light keeps coming on and beeps


This is the pressure light, nothing to do with the oil needing to be being changed, you have low oil pressure being indicated, this will destroy the engine if the light is really indicating low oil pressure, have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical test guage at a shop, if the oil pressure is ok then replace the oil pressure light sending unit.
