could be your low gas warning light, how much fuel is in your tank?that would be my guess.

Check ALL YOUR Gauges!
Mine use to ding like crazy when oil pressure was low too. BTW, it will ding away when ANY GAUGE is in the RED ZONE too! This includes low fuel, low volts, low coolant, low oil pressure, low brake fluid & low WSW fluid (some models). It will also ding away if the seat belt is not fastened too.

well i had between a 1/4 and 1/2 tank of gas. everybody had there seat belts on but my mother who was in the back, all the fluid are filled up. my oil pressure guage stays right above the red zone when it gets hot maybe just sitting there and being hot it droped below that redzone and when i started rolling again the pressure jumped back up and the noise stoped. windshield wiper fluid its got some in it i don't know if its full or not but its not empty. i'll just have to play with it i guess thanks guys

Oil pressure sounds kinda low. Mine generally hovers around 40 psi. Maybe one of the Series I experts can verify this suspicion

That'* what I said earlier in this thread. That'* your problem & why it'* dinging! BTW.....Now for the bad news! You're gonna need a new Oil Pump & Crank Kit now too!
That'* why I'm selling my 92 SE! If you want it fixed, well that will cost you about $500 Cdn in parts (@ Wholesale) & 20 hours labour!
