Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Nissan Maxima 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 102000 miles
Hello, I have been having a leak on this car for a long time and got it fixed recently (oil pan and crankshaft seals). Now the engine oil light comes on when the car is in drive but stopped (like at a red light), but when moving it goes off. There seems to be no leak around the oil pressure switch. The oil is slightly more than full. I had the wheel bearings (front) replaced and am noticing my steering wheel wobbling a bit when slow and when going fast the car vibrates. But then the other day, I noticed that, if I let loose on the brake pedal very slightly to let the car roll like a few inches, the car seems to have a slight wobbly jerk forward but it disappears when running. I also noticed that the car seems to have a slight vibration when completely at a stop but engine running and in drive. My friend says it might be the crankshaft bearings that are shot that cause the oil pressure light to go on and off like mine. Any idea what it is?
have the same problem?
