I went outside and cranked the car just to see if it would start right up cause it has been having trouble starting. But if I turn the key to on position and hold it for a few second it cranks right up. I was thinking it could be the main relay but I can hear it click and hear the fuel pump come on. Today I crunk it up let it run for a little while and the OIL LIGHT started blinking so I gave it a little acceleration and rpm went up and drop all the way down and the car went dead. But it started right back up. CHECKED DIPSTICK AND IT READS FULL. PLEASE HELP ASAP THANKS
Oil switches can go bad. Look for leaks, check the wire.
As far as the starting, going to need a little more info......you say "I turn the key to on position and hold it for a few second it cranks right up"????
Could be the main relay....could be the switch? Key to on, does the cel come on and go off? If you hold the key "slightly" forward does the car stay running?
key to on the cel come on but doesn't stay on...once started the car pretty much stays on. But sometimes after driven for awhile it will do the same (starting problem) when I stop for a minute. (Ex. for instance after I drive from work 25 miles and stop at a local store... starting problems)... Then sometimes after the stop I'll crank the car get ready to put it in reverse and the car will shake and go dead until I give it some gas by pressing the acceleration pad. 200,000 miles on it
It sounds like the main relay to me. Once you get it out, you can take the cover off and check it for carbon scoring along the solder points. It will be a grey box down by your left foot. It looks like the attached.
The oil light problem might be the oil pressure relay, which is right near your oil filter on the back of your engine. There should be a cord leading to it. It screws right out, but have a pan ready, because oil will get everywhere.
Some say that he has trouble getting rid of the rust around his shoulder blades...
...and that he's never learned how to use an automatic transmission...
