That is your Check Engine Light. It is indicating a fault of some kind, usually of an emissions nature. Take your car to an auto parts store or a service station so they can obtain the fault codes from the car's computer and determine why the light is on and then recommend any repairs after that. I hope this helps! :) -Jason

How do I know when my oil pump is bad on my 1999 Nissan Altima


Engine would be very noisy, oil pressure gauge would show little or no pressure, warning light (if any) would be on about engine or oil.

2004 mercury mountaineer slight winning noise when coming to a stop and oil gauge slightly high ?


Sounds like a bearing starting to go somewhere in the driveline; assuming the differential and transfer case are full. As to the oil pressure; If you have the correct weight of oil in the engine and it has been changed on schedule; the higher the better.

How do i tell if i have a bad oil pump or a bad oil sensor


If oil level in engine is at proper level, I wouild suspect oil pressure sending unit, does vehicle have an oil psi gauge on dash,,,if so what does it read. if oil psi reads well then it may be an oil level sensor. if you have access to a manual oil pressure gauge, you can remove the oil psi sensor and install manual gauge to get a true reading of what oil pressure is while running. if manual gauges shows low psi, then you may be looking at an oil pump.

Could be a few things, first Get it checked with a mechanical gauge to test low motor oil, clogged oil filter, bad oil pump, clogged oil sump (pick up tube) or bad oil sending unit. Then replace sending unit sensor.

There is an engine light on, it looks like an oil can, does that mean there is no oil in the car?


First, do not keep driving if the oil warning light is on or your oil pressure gauge has dropped. Stop the engine, let it sit for a few minutes, then check the oil level.
Don't ignore it. An oil pressure warning light (or low gauge reading) means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure, or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed. I hope this helps.

Gauges work fine when engine's started, then oil gauge falls below zero and warning light comes on saying "Check gauges," so I check the oil and transmission fluid levels and these are fine but...


start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.

The engine oil pressure gauge on my daughter's 1992 Audi 100 is around 5, indicating that the oil pressure is very high. She also reports occasional warning sounds. I started it today, the gauge remains...


If you put too much oil in an engine it will exert excessive pressure on the oil pump which can lead to pump failure and/or failure of engine seals. I am not very familiar with Audi/VW but the warning light could mean not enough or too much oil in the system. Start the car and let it run for about 15 to 20 seconds then turn it off and check the oil level. If the level is over the fill line you will need to drain some of the oil. As odd as it sounds it is better to have too little oil in the engine than too much. PLease rate me on this answer.

It just suddenly came on, and it won't go over 5 miles per hour.There is engineoil and coolant. there was no warnings


It's not good news when there's engine oil and coolant in the same sentence. Don't drive it anymore and have it looked at by a trusted mechanic. Good Luck.
