the cam bearings could be worn out. in which case you probly need to change. but when you pull apart the engine, you will probly find some other problems, so you might as well just rebuild the engine. its hard to beat those old Chevy 305 engines, they go forever and they make good power done up right
if the engine has low miles then it is likely an oil pump problem and the pump should be replaced...on a high milage engine then is likely time for rebuild....you could try using heavier weight oil or adding addatives like lucus oil stabilizer to get a few more miles out of it....
Like the first person said, it sounds like cam bearings. You can try thicker oil if you don't really care about the engine, it will let it go a little longer. I highly suggest NOT using Lucas or any other oil additives. They are no good.
Diagnose the problem and fix it
You have busted piston rings.
If you are referring to the Check Engine Light, then there is a problem with the emissions system. Have it looked at by a professional with the tools and knowledge to diagnose the problem.
you have an engine/ignition problem. HAve a garage read the codes and diagnose the problem soon.
High oil pressure is not usually a problem. The relief will open around 100psi on most engines.
Lift hood. If engine is missing, there will be a large empty space where the engine used to be.
Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
Too many possibilites to list them all. Take it to a mechanic to diagnose the problem. Then fix it yourself.
Most likely the problem is with the Pressure Sensor in the engine block.
A check engine light means you have a possible problem with the emission system , you should get the Ranger scanned for trouble codes to diagnose and repair the problem . Once the problem has been repaired the check engine light can be reset.
I have no number on panel when icon checks oil pressure . please guide me what is problem
Not much info to go on. Ask a trusted mechanic in your area to diagnose it for you.
Bring it to an Advance Auto Parts store and have the diagnose the problem. They hook up the car to their code reader at no charge and will tell you what the problem is.
Pretty simple connect an obd2 scanner and it will pull the error codes for the check engine light then look up the error code and diagnose and fix your problem
Check the engine. ===================================================== There is a problem with something that effects the emissions of the engine You need to have the vehicle scanned for any trouble codes to help diagnose and then repair the problem
A malfunction has been detected with the emission control system. As long as you don't have any other warning lights and your oil pressure and engine temperature are fine, if the problem doesn't correct itself and the light stays on, have the Explorer scanned for any trouble codes to help diagnose and repair the problem.
If your check engine light is blinking with the engine running that is indicating a misfire - get your vehicle scanned for any trouble codes to diagnose and then repair the problem
The check engine light comes on when a problem with the emission control system has been detected - scan the vehicle for trouble codes in order to diagnose and repair the problem
Fix the oil pressure problem and see what that does for you.
If you problem is that the gauge shows oil pressure with the engine off, you have a gauge or sending unit failure.
typically yes No not always, check engine usually refers to an air fuel mix problem, it may be a vacuum pipe, lamda sensor ot throttle body problem, get the car plugged in to diagnose the fault.
on most gm cars its on top of the engine. to diagnose you have to pull a vac or pressure it... a bad gas cap can give the same fault
your engine computer found a problem with a sensor or how the engine overall is running Youn need to goto a mechanic shop and have them use a scanner to diagnose the code then tell you what parts and labor it is to repair
If the check engine light is coming on it is because you have a problem with the emissions system. Have the ECU scanned to retrieve the code that has been set. This code will tell you what part is being effected and may help you diagnose the problem.
