i had this problem with a Nissan truck i had what i done is there is prob a nut on the clutch pedal that goes to the master cylinder adjust it and c what u get
Change the wire, or coil plug
This means that your vehicle is missing on cylinder 3. You will need to have your coil changed to fix this problem
Somehow there is cylinder pressure or radiator pressure getting into the crankcase. There is a problem. Take it to a repair shop ASAP.
Spark plugs need to be changed. had the same problem and it disappeared when I replaced the plugs.
I had the same problem with a 98 contour, It was the fuel pressure regulator.
Try having the fluid and filter changed. If the problem persists seek help from a professional. You are driving an 11-year-old car and if you have not had the fluid changed at regular intervals this might be the problem.
The main reason oil comes out of the top of an engine is pressure being built up in the crank case. This is because of bad rings that don't keep the compression inside the cylinder where it belongs. Try doing a compression check on each cylinder and you will find which cylinder is causing your problem. If you remove the oil filler cap and you have a lot of pressure and oil spray you can bet this is your problem.
i have had the same problem once and it was due either the wires or spak plug fouling i changed both and solved the problem
Master cylinder failure.
1. verify that the oil pressure is actually dropping using a calibrated oil pressure gauge. 2. most likely scenario, the oil pressure is not really dropping, the oil pressure sending unit on your vehicle is bad...common Chevy v8 problem
its your rear swaybar links had the same problem with my 96 sl2 changed them and that fixed the problem no more creaking
You probably have a stuffed oil pump or possibly a crook oil pressure sender. when it comes to oil pressure always start of by thinking the worst stop driving until you KNOW what the problem is.
The problem will be your brake master cylinder. It is sticking. Get it reconditioned or get a new one fitted.
The easiest answer is when it fails a compression test. Buy a compression tester (farily cheap), and test each cylinder. If one single cylinder is below 120 psi, or if one cylinder reads 15% less pressure than the cylinder with the highest pressure, your engine should be torn down and checked. The problem might only be in the heads, but it's still time for some serious work.
I had the same problem with my areo star van and found out that it was the throttle position sensor that was causing the problem. Once changed, it was back to normal driving with no serging and jumping like a rodeo bronk..
The clutch will not depress after you have pushed it in to shift gears. It may come back out a few times but this will be the beginning of the problem. I just changed mine recently (at a Ford dealer) as this was the problem. Not a cheap job to get done by any means. Have the mechanics check your clutch and pressure plate for wear as this would be the time to get it all done. The job cost approximately $1300.00 bucks (candian funds) and will be about half that price if you just change the slave cylinder. It shifts like a new truck now!!!
Check the level of hydraulic oil (aka brake fluid) in the clutch master cylinder reservoir. If it is empty you found your problem. Either the master or the slave cylinder is leaking.
check fuel pressure regulator
Since the Cavalier is out of timing, check the timing gears and belt. It sounds like the belt has slipped and is causing the base problem with the car.
2 months ago. whens the last time you changed your fuel filter?
I just delt with an oil pressure problem (Low psi) on my 1994 F-150 with the same motor and I went ahead and changed the oil pump right off the bat thinking since it has 185,000 mi. that must be the problem. Didnt help ! So i changed the oil pressure sending unit on the drivers side of the block and that fixed it. So I put a 40 dollar oil pump on and a 8 dollar sending unit is what fixed it. haha
One reason that a 2000 GMC Jimmy engine stalls while driving could be your filter needing to be changed. The problem could also be a bad sensor.
I would almost bet your problem is the throttle positioning sensor( located on top of the engine and slightly to the left of center) my problem was the fuel pressure regulator!! after driving the car pull off the vacuum hose on your fuel pressure regulator, if you get any gas that comes out the vacuum hose ,your fuel pressure regulator is bad!!! this was a major headache that i finally fingered out!!! :)
This could possibly be a fuel problem. Has the fuel filter been changed ? Fuel pressure checked ? Is there dirt in the fuel tank ?
