Re: oil pressure switch and the car is shutting off??? (almostAvr6C)

yes..i had the same problem back when i had my 1.8 motor in the car..i would even let the car charge with the jumper cables on for like a LONG time..take them off..let the car run..or even try to move it..it would die..replaced the alternator and it went away. Like $110 at autozone or around the same price at your local pep boys or such store. look for ones with lifetime warranties. get a new battery while your at it too since yours probablly drained way too low. might as well. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

bad alternator, the oil pressure is likely seperate thing, likely just the switch ontop of the filter flange, worry about that after u got it running right though.

Re: oil pressure switch and the car is shutting off??? (The_Hamster)

thanks alot! You have answered a few questions for me before and they have all been right! Well there is 2 switches on the filter flange. is it the one closest to the block or the one closest to the radiator. I have the MFA so i think one of them is for the oil temp for that. Thanks for the help!! again!!
