1997 Taurus. Oil light came on all of a sudden. Did this 20k miles ago and after a dozen 1 mile drive it stopped and went 20 k miles just fine. Now back on again. Where do I start?
This problem also happened a year ago. Drove the car around the block a dozen or so different times and the problem went away for 20 k miles.
When the light comes on, there are the typical noise symptoms of no oil to the engine. One owner car off showroom. Only major part replaced ever was a water pump. Checked on line and saw things like blocked oil screen, vacum line problem, filter clogged, Has always had good oil changes on time.
not sure where to start. Car only worth $800 but has served me well. If can fix for under $1000 would like to do that. Thanks
have the same problem?
