Do not run engine further. The indicator light shows oil pressure but not oil level. You could be out of oil.

Check your oil level immediately--with the engine off, open hood, remove dipstick, wipe it clean. Insert it and extract it again. The oil level.should be between the Fill and Add lines. If it is lower than that, add oil, a quart at a time, until it reaches the proper level.

If the oil level is okay, then the engine needs to be repaired. You could have a broken oil pump, clogged intake screen, or some other internal engine failure. Do not drive the car to a shop. Have it towed.

My Lincoln Continental 2000 Model oil light came on engine stopped after 25 feet. would not restart even though oil full. The car started the next day, but had a rattling sound at the top of the motor


Oil light is rather important it goes out if oil pressure is good comes on if oil pressure is low when it comes on damage is expected with continued operation like wearing of main bearings and pistons and cylinders can lead to a engine rebuild

How to stop lifters from tapping for 1997 lincoln towncar?


Lifter noise is typical of an oil pressure issue, or when oil channels are clogged from infrequent oil changes.
You can start by changing the oil and REPLACING THE FILTER. Marvel Mystery Oil or other oil treatments will help clean the oil system and quiet the lifters. If an oil change and crankcase oil additive helps quiet the noise, change your oil every 500 miles for at least 2000 miles, and the lifter noise is likely to stop.
Are you getting a CHECK ENGINE light, or an OIL PRESSURE warning? Have ODB codes checked, and be prepared to replace the oil pump or oil pickup tube, especially if the car has over 150,000 miles. Once you have correct the issue, change oil more frequently.

No oil pressure on a 2007 A-4 2.0L Audi car after it warms up.


more likely when the oil is cold and thick than when hot
try a 30w-50 grade oil to see if the oil pressure is maintained
if not it indicates a worn motor bearings and hydraulic lifters

What causes clattering or clicking sound when you start it up early in the morning on a 1993 lincoln mark viii?


Sounds like lack of lubrication on the camshaft, especially if the sound goes away after 10 sec. or so.
If you are on a cold climate, shift to a lighter oil weight, such as 5W-30. Other option is to use commonly available oil superlubricants/ additives. Origin of problem is that oil gets drained down during the night, camshaft gets dried up, and on first start in the morning, oil pump works hard to pump the heavy oil to the top of the engine. On hotter climates, some oil stays attached to the camshaft and valve lifters.

Does 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 have hydraulic lifters? I posted a question a few days ago regarding engine loud ticking which sounds like lifter noise. It doesn't have that deep sounding knock. I went to...


I would not believe any thing some parts store loser told you. Theres not a V8 built that doesnt have hydraulic lifters, unless its some fancy racin engine. It has hydraulic lifters, but unless you dont change your oil every 5k miles and/or use some cheap oil, there should be no problems. You should have a real mechanic look at it, and verify that you have good oil pressure. If it does, I would change the oil and use some MOBIL 1 and drive it, the oil will clean the lifters somewhat. If the eng has low oil pressure, that will need to be addressed.
