Re: Engine Problems
haveyoubooked....thank you for coming to my defence...I know eveyone is trying to help and I genuinely appreciate any helpful advise given. Basically, the car was running fine until this oil problem, now I seem to have a little too many gremlins, which Im sure are all connected to the low oil pressure, Im just trying to work out how to get it all fixed, or whether I have done so much damage that it's going to cost me an arm and a leg to fix. I have just had to go out in it, 25 mile trip and I can't say it was a pleasant experience, the steering sems very heavy, engine seems sluggish in 4th and 5th, temperature was on occasions at what I think is 95. If you look at the temp dial it starts at 50, then a slash where 75 should be, vertical is 90 and mine is reading on the next slash which I hope is 95 and then the max slash (directly on the opposite side to 50) with the large red marker is 100. Please correct me if I am wrong. It is at 2pm looking directly at the dial, sitting directly on the first slash after 90. Hope this is making sense. The fan is soming on at 90-92, it does bring the temp back down to 90 after a few minutes, unless Im in low gear, or climbing hills, at which point it stays at 95 with the fan whizzing away. When stationary, say at trafic lights, it is having a job idling, almost trying to stall, and sometimes does!! To be honest I don't feel very safe driving it, it doesn't feel right at all, but Im not sure how running low on oil could have casued all these problems???
