They are a sealed heater you can't add oil to get more heat, if you can must be a new type i haven't seen, but if not hot enough throw away and buy a heater that works they work on the principal that an element heats the oil and runds on an internal thermostat to control temperature of oil, your element may be starting to deteriate the same as hot water you only notice with hot water as it starts to not heat the water as much and you feel this in a shower or bath but you won't notice the same in oil heater it won't heat as it has and it may also be the thermostat, inside heater i wouldn't even bother trying to repair waste of time and money i would buy a proper working heater prefrably one that could be fixed to go better after its starts to deteriate a lttle

1999 suburban gage oil pressure is 0 when it warms up. rpm drop to 3-4 rpm when oil pressure goes to 0. Sounds good, runs excellent -no noise. Actually it sound better then most new cars. It is so...

I looked at info for 1500--5.7L engine.
6 psi @ 1000 rpms
18 psi@2000 rpms
24 psi @ 4000 rpms

Sometimes, you can use analog gage in place of oil pressure sending unit and double check oil pressure that way. If oil pressure is actually low, if high mileage engine, I doubt replacing oil pump will help. I just wanted to add, check oil pressure engine warmed up.

Truck want start until i use a light to heat up the engine

If it's very cold outside and you engine does not want to start because of it, Regardless of if it's a diesel or gas engine, you may benefit from using synthetic oil in there as it flows easier and permits the engine to turn better than when trying to pump molasses like conventional oil. You can also add acetone to the fuel at a concentration of 3oz to ten gallons. That aids in fuel evaporation and aids starting but is not harmful to internal components or seals.
Other items worth mentioning are to keep your battery fully charged and if it remains very cold for long periods of time where you are, think about adding a block heater to keep it warm.

1990 Toyota celica 1.6 overheating when it runs for about 6 miles I changed water pump and thermostat it's not blowing any water out of tail pipe and no water in oil what's should I do

Start vechile, let it warm up, turn on heater, is there heat from the heater?
No? You need to bleed the system better. Jack the front of the car up, remove radiator cap, while throttle is increased add more coolant, then with throttle still increased put radiator cap back on and release throttle. Is there now heat?

Oil change

The sight glass should show oil whenever the bike is stationary and level, either hot or cold. The warm oil concept generally applies for the easy pouring or viscosity of the oil. Warm oil flows better and is easier to drain from sumps, hoses, radiator's etc. Warm oil will drain better from all areas of the engine to give a better indication of the total oil in the system. The sight glass is generally hi-lo levels from top to bottom. Cheers.

Peugeot 306 1.4 overheating problem, heater not getting warm, engine is running ok, radiator not getting warm, water coming from overflow pipe on rad/expansion tank, all hoses connected to engine getting...

Hi its the head gasket, you cant see no water in the oil on these engines like you normally can on most oil caps, pull the dip stick out and look on the bottom any sign of yellow gundge will be the head gasket, sometimes it is only a very small amount.

These cars always have the same problem, if i was you I would do the head gasket and waterpump at the same time, water pumps are only about £20 and wont add much to the bill if doing them at the same time.

As there is no water coing out of the bleed niple then it must be air locked somewhere, problem is when they get like this the gasket will blow anyhow.

Hope this helps

My engine make a sound like there is no oil in the car but after a few minutes it stops. Do i need a heavier oil

No, check the oil level and you can add Lucas engine oil additive. The Lucas oil will add fluid retention to your oil and will keep the piston slap to a minimal. It's common on newer cars with high tolerance engines like yours, and if the engine was not warmed up prior to driving it hard will cause the engine to have piston slap much worst throughout it's life. You can do a search on GM piston slap problems to give you some more information to the noise your describing. There are a few things that can help, add Restor engine oil additives and Lucas engine oil to your regular engine oil service maintenance time. This will help with the waring up the engine before you go for your drive, good rule is the engine is warm enough when you start getting some heat from the heater. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know this helps your Saturn. It has for many on here with the same problem.

How to check oil and when to add oil

Check oil when oil is warm use a towel the stuffs hot.
Theres a yellow dipstick under the hood located on either side of the engine or on the back side of engine.Pull the dipstick out wipe it clean then check the oil after the oil is warm and the car sits for about 4 minutes not running.Gets all the oil to the pan.Check then if its not to the line on the warm side of the stick add oil. Check oil monthly and change oil every 3,000 miles you can add oil to the oil if low before 3,000 but do not mix two different oils use oil that the truck requires usually it tells you on the cap or inside the hood .

1998 malibu shifts and operates fine when warm, if cold out (northern Michigan) car won't move until car gets warm, then operates smoothly and properly

In your neck of the wood you need to have a block heater to keep the car warm at temperatures that are below freezing will cause the transmission fluid and oil to gel, in the transmission the oil does not stay on all parts so if it freezes it can damage the transmission. There are additives you can add that will help with this problem however if the clutches freeze or the seals freeze you will damage the transmission. So if you can add transmission additive called Lucas conditioner and or change the fluid to synthetic transmission fluid the same with the motor oil. A block heater or synthetic motor oil with extreme cold the oil will drain off on all engine parts and transmission parts and can cause a dry start condition or no oil on major components in the transmission will cause damage to the transmission. The rubber seals in both the engine and transmission will get damaged and can be destroyed and cost you a lot of money.

It cools on it's on all of a sudden

Add a Teflon oil treatment and consider servicing your transmission.  There's no reason a small engine should have to be warmed up (unless your oil freezes, in which case you need an oil heater instead.)
