The first thing to do is to get a regular gauge and locate the sender on the engine and pull the sender out and put in the gauge to see what the real pressure is. While the sender is out and you start the car see if the gauge still sticks to the right. If it does then it is the instrument cluster that needs to be fixed. If the gauge reads low with it disconnected, replace the sender. IF the actual test gauge reads high pressure then you have another problem all together.

Engine started making ticking noise, checked oil ....very low. added oil, same, added marvel mystery oil, same thing. need an engine job?? 2008 huyandi sonota 4 cyl.


the ticking noise could be the rockers and the clearance may need to be checked and possibly adjusted.you should get the oil pressure checked with a gage to make sure its not an oil pressure problem.and start getting your oil changed on a regular basis as this is the most common problem for engine problems and failure and its the cheapest most cost effective maintenance.

The oil gauge is not working had a new put in but that wasnt the problem.


One of four things is happening:

1. You are very low on oil, but probably you already checked that

2. The oil pump is not working, but the engine would not last long with no oil circulating.

3 The oil pressure sending unit is defective. This is a unit that send an electrical signal to the gage proportionate to the pressure it is measuring from the engine. If the pressure gage is bad then you get no signal and nothing is measured on the oil pressure gage. Also check the wires from the sending unit to make sure they are not frayed or broken.

4. The oil pressure gage is defective. Yes even new guages can be defective. Check the new gage to make sure is is operating properly. (external voltage check)


The only other possibility is that the engine is loosing lots of oil pressure due to excessive wear.

Good luck

What is the check gauges light


CHECK GAGES light (1) indicates a potential engine failure(low oil pressure, low coolant, coolant overheating) has occurred.
· Check gages and shut down engine. Gages should read as follows: Oil pressure 5 to 10 psi (34 to 69 kPa) at idle; Water Temp gage below 230 degrees (110 C).
· Check engine oil level (Para 2-11) if OIL PRESS gage indicates low reading. Check coolant level (Para 2-11) if Water Temp gage indicates high reading. Notify Unit Maintenance if levels are low.

If CHECK ENGINE light (2) is on, check engine oil pressure gage (3) and water temperature gage (4). If both indicate normal, proceed with mission and then notify Unit Maintenance. If either one does not indicate normal, stop engine immediately and notify Unit Maintenance

Location of auto trans dip stick on 91 Ford Tempo 4 cyl.


It's right next to the air filter and behind the radiator fan and to the right of the oil dipstick. The transmissions is black and the oils is yellow. If it's a manual, there's no dipstick there. If not check close to the forewall towards the back of the engine.

Check gage ligh on..


It could be worn camshaft bearings that is lowering your oil pressure. I had the same situation with my 2000 Jeep Cherokee 6 cyl. Changing the oil pressure sending unit did not make a difference. I used a higher viscosity oil and that prolonged the life for almost another year. If you put an oil pressure gauge on it and let it run at a prolonged normal temperature, it will give you a definite answer wheter or not the engine has low oil pressure. The real problem is finding the cause. Camshaft bearings are a likely source. According to the spec book, the I-6 engine had low oil pressure numbers to begin with.

Temperature and fuel gages are not working


Take it to a Dealer and have your gauges reset - you should also have your water pump replaced and you might as well have the Timing belt replaced also (usually at 80-90K)
