Car Care Tip of the day

My automotive /car engine oil pressure warning light is on. What should I do? Houston,Tx

Donít ignore it. An oil pressure warning light (or low gauge reading) means one of two things: either your engine has dangerously low oil pressure (for a variety of reasons which weíll get to in a minute), or the oil pressure sending unit that triggers the warning light (or operates your gauge) has failed. The question here is whether you have a serious problem or a minor one. 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. Is the level low? If the oil level is down more than two quarts or no oil is showing on the dipstick, adding oil to bring the level back up to the full mark may be all thatís necessary to make the light go out. Just keep your fingers crossed that you havenít damaged the engine from running it too low on oil. If you hear rapping or knocking noises the engine starts, youíre too late. The damage is done and now youíre stuck with the consequences. Note: On some late model vehicles, the warning light will come on (or a message will appear) if a sensor in the oil pan detects a low oil level. The light is supposed to come on before the level gets low enough to cause any damage. If your oil level was low, it means your engine is either leaking oil or burning it. Leaks can be fixed by finding and replacing leaky gaskets and seals. Sometimes the oil filter will leak if it isnít installed or tightened properly. But an oil burning problem means the valve guides, rings and/or cylinders are worn or damaged and more costly repairs are needed. If the dipstick shows a full oil level, then low oil obviously isnít your problem. The oil pressure may be low because of a worn or broken oil pump, a plugged oil pickup screen in the engineís crankcase, possibly a plugged oil filter or excessive bearing wear. Or, the oil pressure may be fine but the oil pressure sending unit has failed. Further diagnosis will be required to determine whatís wrong. Should you attempt to drive your vehicle home or to a service facility? Itís risky. If the problem came on suddenly, your engine does not have a lot of miles on it (less than 60,000) and you noticed no unusual noises (no valvetrain clattering or engine knocking), thereís a good chance that all thatís wrong is the sending unit. But, thereís no way to know for sure without actually checking the engineís oil pressure with a gauge, or replacing the sending unit to see if a new unit makes the light go out. If the problem is only the sending unit, your engine still has oil pressure and you can continue to drive it until the sending unit can be replaced. But, if youíre wrong you risk ruining your engine. If you think you might have a low oil pressure or oil delivery problem because of a bad oil pump or one of the other problems we mentioned, do not drive your vehicle. Doing so only increases the probability of further engine damage. Have the vehicle towed to a service facility for repairs.
Featured Testimonial

I moved to Houston not to long ago, and I needed some service on my car. I didn't know where to go so I went on-line and I found Judy's Book here. I read an article that Alice wrote and she praised this shop, so I decided to go there. It was like being at my old mechanic shop back where I'm from. I loved it. The owner was nice and polite. I really believe he gave me an honest price and treated me fairly. I think Midtown Auto Service is the new name of the shop, but Mikey is still the owner. Because that's the person who I dealt with.
