Went to the auto store, only code that came up was P0719 which is for the brake switch which I am having problems with.

The tranny fluid was done at 30K, now have around 42K. Color is good, odor is good, level is good.

Coolant is full, overflow tank is at the correct level, I did not have the coolant flushed and filled yet. Should I buy one of those little coolant testers to see how the cooland is fairing despite the car running in perfect temp ranges?

The car's running temps are dead on since the day I got it.


Guys, I was searching about the P0719 and found this

Maybe my bad brake switch is causing the "OIL AT TEMP" problem, based on what was in that link, it's possible the bad brake switch is causing the tranny to run a little different, hence throwing the light to flash constantly, like it senses something wrong? I did notice tonight when I slow down, the car seems to be engine braking a bit, the rpms used to drop quickly I believe but now the rpms drop really slow.

Some please humor me and tell me they think this could be it LOL!

What ya think????
