New York
Tom’s oil light started flashing and staying on at times. He called the dealer who told him he needs a new engine. The guys at work said to just to use heavier oil and STP. Who’s the genius and who’s the quack? Dealer could be right--the light means low pressure, but Tom needs to find out why. He can get someone to drop the pan and see what the bearings look like. If they’re shot, he needs an engine, if they’re okay, he may get by with a new pump.
