Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Ultra with just over 13000 miles. While on a ride, the oil light came on intermittently. I stopped and checked oil level and it was full, but oil light remained on for approximately 60 miles, then went out. I had my wife with me and thought maybe the added weight may have played into it, but riding home by myself it again came on, flashing in and out. What may be the problem?

Check the connection on your oil sensor at the front of the timing gear cover. The wire may be loose or the sensor bad.

Good luck

If there is a lot of ice then I would think that the coolant was iced up and the engine overheated as stated . The engine light is there to let you know that something drastic is about to happen to the engine and you should stop immediately , check the oil level and coolant level before driving any distance.

There could be a number of things going on here. First check your oil level if it is lower than normal you could have a sumping issue going on here. Next is to pull your air filter off so you can see your injectors, turn the ignition on and off 5 or 6 times to make sure your injectors are not leaking. While you have the air filter off look inside the throttle body with the trottle plate open and see if the IAC pintle is moving in and out when you turn the ignition on and off.This only controls cold ilde. If all is good you will have to reset the TPS.

Your Oil Pressure Sensor is probably going bad or you could have a shorted wire from the Sensor to the dash. Find the Sensor and check the wiring for any breaks, chafing, or burnt insulation, check the routing of the wiring to make sure it is not touching or rubbing on any hot Engine Components, Exhaust Pipes or Exhaust Manifolds.

Oil light comes on at certain times


First, check the oil level on the dipstick. If it is low, add the required amount of approved motor oil. If the level is correct and the light still comes on, there may be other issues.

VW Golf 2001, V4 Oil tank is empty approxi after 2000 miles


Because your car is consuming so much oil, you need to check the level often, so the level won't go down more than one quart. You will get an idea how long you can drive the car before it is down one quart, and should keep the level at the full mark. You should change the oil filter, as it is still collecting contaminants.
Have you checked the spark plugs condition? It seems the oil consumption will result in the plugs being fouled soon . Keep that oil level up, or the result will be a seized engine. Also, I'm guessing the tail pipe shows black residue, another sign of high oil consumption. This is probably why someone sold this car, they didn't want to deal with an expensive repair of an engine rebuild. You are correct, an oil change should be done every 3k miles.
