Default Winters comin, and problems are startin... again

Ok here goes...

recently switched to sytntec oil, now when i start the "check oil level" light goes on for a few seconds. i put in the usual 5 quarts of 10w-30... any ideas?


also when i stop sometimes, it sounds like its grinding, not smooth at all.

also also, today i made a hard turn, (i slid sideways), and then i noticed every turn sounded like a wierd noise. like the car was trying so hard to turn.

EDIT: also, when i make right turns, it clicks... axels?

Next oil change, try another brand. What'* your oil pressure?

For the noises, the first thing I'd look at are the swaybar endlinks. Cheap and relatively easy to fix, and a common problem after a few miles. Virtually any 95 or older on OEM endlinks needs to have them replaced. Yours isn't out of the question either, as the 'newer' style on your car are inferior in my humble opinion. Plastic spacers don't hold up to wear and tear very well.

I agree....just changed the cheap plastic links on my 97.....the right side rotted through and broke in half....right inside the plastic spacer...not the best design in the world....
