Question about 2003 Pontiac Sunfire

1 Answer

My daughter has 1,046 miles on a recent oil change and suddenly lost the oil from the passenger side. Due to her inability to move and shut off the car in a safe area I believe this may have done extreme damage to the engine which stalled moments after oil pressure light came on...My question is...what side is the oil filter on?

Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.

When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

Could be the oil pump.

Could be a major blockage in the lubrication system possibly due to major sludge build up.

Could be a faulty oil pressure relief valve.

1. How many miles are clocked up on the car?
2. How often does the engine oil and oil filter get changed in the car? Every 6000 miles for example.

I would like at the CATS, they can get clogged, this would also cause the gas smell in the cabinet. GL
