I get in my car at any given point of the day and drive it around town doing different things, after a bit when I stop at a light my check guages light will flash continusly, when the light turns green, I proceed the check gauges light goes out. Now say I drive to the mall, put it in park the check guages light starts to flash, I looked at the gauges and the oil needle is on the other side of the the little stop pin at 0 pressure. What would cause this to happen.

Check your engine oil first, then have it scanned for codes. When was the last oil change/filter done?

I can't scsn my car its an obd1, oil was last changed about 1.5 months ago, I do it regulary as I work at a quick lube shop. I am told that my flashing check gauges light is sending me a code but I have no idea as to what it is, this is how it flashes- - - flash, flash, flash, flash, flash, flash, and son on.

Cross the a& b on the al dl with apaper clip. Turn tehkey on and the light will flash once 3 times then twice 3 times that is code 12 then watch for other flashes an dwrite down codes. You can go to trouble codes on site an dlook unde r obd1 it will tell you what part to look at.

Hi there why would I be smelling coolant every time I turn on my heater.

Because the heater core is probably leaking.
