Hi, I have an issue with my 2002 Saturn sl1 over 200,000 k. I started it the other day and the oil presser light came on so I turned the car off and checked the oil. It was a little low but good. It has been burning oil a lot. So I tried to restart it and it wouldn't go. It turned over lights and radio were working. I got a boost and it stared after a few tries. The battery if fine. So the oil pressure like came back on while driving. Flashing while accelerating. And going off when not. I checked the oil again and added more. And made it back home. So I Changed out the oil pressure censor. And it continued to have the same problem. You can smell burning oil. And I checked right away under the car and noticed the flex pipe was smoking. I check out the fuel system by doing a few simple tests. Heard the whirl in the tank and it come on when in on potion. I am going to change out the fuel filter. Spark plugs are fine. I am going to check the presser in the engine. And a air test in the pugs to hear for leaks in the muffler and coolant and engine cap. Now What I would like to know what would the flex pipe cause the oil presser light to come on. Or what would cause the issue with the flex pipe. Or do you have any ideas of what might be going on. Thanks
have the same problem?
