My oil lite comes...

My oil lite comes on and beeps. It has plenty of oil. When it is cold it doesn't do this but the warmer it gets the more it beeps. Usually when I press the brake it beeps.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The little oil can icon

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2001 Pt, 200,000 miles on it

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

It is my car and my husband says it isn't worth spending the money that he thinks it would take to fix it. He hasn't done anything to it except make sure I really do have oil.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that is all that is wrong

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
