1990 Corolla 4 Door With 94k - Do I need new oil pump - Oil light comes on when hard braking - Mechanic should fix?
As far as I know, the oil pump and the brake system have nothing to do with each other. However, the brake system uses enging vacumn to assist braking. When you push down hard on the brake pedal, it causes the engine vacumn to diminish. This may result in the engine not getting enought fuel, because vacumn is involved in determining fuel mixture. If the oil light goes out within a second or two of releasing the brakes, I wouldn't worry about it. If it stays on for longer than that, it could mean that the engine needs to be serviced. If you have not had the spark plugs changed since the car was new, it is time to change them. Also, the air cleaner element probably needs to be changed.
ABS = Anti-Lock Brake System If you have this light come on while not braking, it most likely means there is a problem with the electronic controls in your brakes. If it comes on while you are braking, it means the Anti-Lock has kicked in. It should only do that however, if you are braking really hard.
It's the antilock braking system. The light will turn on momentarily when you are starting the vehicle to show that the system is functioning properly. However, if the light stays on for more than a few seconds after starting the engine, or comes on as you are driving, then the diagnostic unit has registered a fault somewhere in the braking system which needs to be checked out as soon as possible by a qualified mechanic.
Yes A 2002 Toyota corolla has a low fuel light that does come on. It should be located in the lower right hand corner of your instrument cluster. It comes on when the fuel gage is almost on E. When I say almost on E i mean almost on E. You will probably have about 1 1/2 to 2 gallons of fuel left in the tank. Jason Night_train06@hotmail.com
Why would the ABS on 00 olds intrigue come on all the time under normal brakeing it engages to quickly with normal braking?
Are your tires in good shape? Brake fluid at proper level? Have you had a spell of "road-slick" weather? ABS comes on when the wheel speed sensors register a mismatch, meaning one wheel has lost traction and ABS should engage. Check the simple stuff like your tires and brake fluid first. If the sensor or ABS control unit is out you should get a warning light on your dash. ABS is not something a shadetree…
