I WOULD SAY NO ONLY BECAUSE IT MAY INDICATE LOW OIL PRESSURE LIKE INTERNAL OIL PUMP THAT MAY HAVE GONE BAD,OR IT COULD BE A FAULTY SENDING UNIT, WHICH IS A CHEAP FIX.BUT EITHER WAY ITS BETTER TO BE SAFE THEN SORRY. 3K FOR A NEW MOTOR INSTALLED.

In my Grand Marquis 1999 while i am driving suddenly o/d off light is flashing what is the problem, is that possible to be transmission oil ? thanks


Not the trans fluid

Oil only cools,lubes & applies pressure to
the clutch drums & bands

You change trans & power steering fluid
every 3 years or 30,000 miles on ALL Vehicles

Changing trans fluid DOES NOT FIX ANYTHING

You have to have the OD light issue diagnosed

My mother had the oil changed in her 1992 Mercury Marquis, only 62,000 miles and the mechanic says we need to fix the crank pulley wobble? I have never heard of this, can you tell me what he is talking...


HI. This can be a potentially damaging find. The actual pulley may be separating from the crank shaft, itself.

Your crank pulley is bolted directly onto the harmonic balancer. The bolt that holds the balancer to the engine block may be loose, or the balancer, itself, may be separating. This condition could also destroy your crankshaft, if not repaired, asap. Hopefully your crank shaft is in good condition, and the culprit will turn out to be just a simple loose pulley bolt. The repair cost could catapult to a higher rate if it turns out to be a crank shaft fault.

Have this potentially damaging condition inspected, asap.

Oil light came on when idling; oil changed; still happening occasionally. If I put it in park or neutral and rev it - the oil light goes out. Could it be the oil sending/pressure unit? Is there an easy way...


make sure are using a genuine dodge oil filter and correct grade of oil to check further you need to have the oil pressure checked using a master gauge a garage would do this for you if ok replace pressure switch if very low could be pump and bearing wear is the idle speed set too low i would check this

The brake light comes on, on the dash. Brakes work O.K.2003 mercury grand marquis. 112000 miles. the dealer says the pads are good.


Make sure your emergency brake pedal is all the way up, because sometimes if it goes down one notch, that can trigger that light to come on..It wont be enough to drag or slow the sar down, but it will be enough to turn that light on...Also even though your brakes are good..double check your break fluid level...

Hi, I have primera., i check the engine oil, and it's too low so i bought 4 ltrs of castrol engine oil and put all of them in the engine., and after driving the car for abt 3 miles smoke came from the tail...


If you low oil light is not illuminated it is ok to drive to the dealer. Putting 4 quarts in might have overfilled it leaving it to leak overboard on engine. You did not say that the smoke was coming from the tail pipe.
