When was the last time you checked your oil level?

Please don't tell me you let the Machine run out of oil.

Yeah, he ran over an Alien that emitted an electric shock that immediately triggered his oil and check engine light followed by killing the car.

Raz, what I was getting at someone may have left the screw out when they changed the oil or he could have ruptured his oil pan when he ran over something.

Default Re: Maxima Is Dead Omg, Help Me!

Just because the lights came on before it shut off, it doesn't mean it's oil-related. When the car dies while the ignition is still on, all the dashboard lights, including battery, CEL, seat belt, etc come on. If you lost power while driving, it must be a power connection issue.

Did the dash stay light after it shut off? Or did the electricity all die? Have you had any work done recently? When was the last time you replaced battery, alternator, etc?

All these factors needed tk be answered for your problem to be narrowed down.

Good luck.

Damn dude, that sucks big time!!! Wonder why your car didn't give you any indication that the pump was bad, unless it went out while you were driving it today.

I was afraid of the worse, this is the 3rd Oil Pump Failure Ive heard this week on the VQ.


you should be able to find a motor for around 600-1200 depending on where you get it from.

I have a motor F/S but only local , you should be able to find one by you

Well heres the thing, they say that the VQ is oil consuming.

I have found out that the O-ring goes bad in the Oil cooler ( Oil Filter )

That is where the oil is going , but since your driving the car, no one will notice the oil dripping as the car is moving, this could cause low oil and people not checking up on the oil level on a regular.

I mean how many times do the average person check their oil ? they usually watch the mileage and wait til 3K to do the oil change.

This could be possiabitly, why Oil Pump failure happens, Low oil can cause the pump to go into major failure.

its just my theory but logically makes sense, The other 2 oil pump failure , was one on the .org

and the other one was a customer of mine, who also ran low on oil.

I mean how many times do the average person check their oil ? they usually watch the mileage and wait til 3K to do the oil change.

This could be possiabitly, why Oil Pump failure happens, Low oil can cause the pump to go into major failure.

its just my theory but logically makes sense, The other 2 oil pump failure , was one on the .org

and the other one was a customer of mine, who also ran low on oil.
Are you talking about the thick rubber gasket/ring on the oil filter itself? It goes bad? How long do they leave the filter on the car for the gasket to go bad? I've change a LOT of oil filters, and I've never seen a bad gasket...I also change my oil on a pretty regular basis.
