    -Low Oil-

    Okay, so here is ANOTHER thing my car does and although its probably not engine threatning it kind of gets on my nerves. For some reason my Low Oil light has a mind of its own. Ive checked the oil while my car was hot and cold and its well in Operating range, in fact it couldnt be anymore perfect..but that damn light just stays on..what kind of problems could I be having?

    Sensor going nuts?

    Add 1/2 quart and see if it goes away.

    Yeah..my longterm and short term fuel trims were WAYY off and my Spark timing was off a little

    they even disabled the knock sensors

    Its all fixed now and while I got it fixed I got a tune at the same time
