What does the red warning light on the psi guage mean? The oil temp starts out on low, after a few miles the light comes on. Just had an oil change and filter put on today.

Be careful and make sure u check oil level first, they might've left drain plug loose and lost engine oil or it might've had heavier weight oil before and with lighter weight oil, it's loosing oil pressure, if that's the case...Bad news, u may need a new engine

Check oil pressure with a pressure gauge when cold and after ooerating temperature, if pressure drops after it warms up, most likely u have a bad engine

Like stated above, first when sitting cold, check the oil level. Also look under the engine for oil driving spots or any indication of an oil leak. If it is low on oil, do not drive it until it is filled with oil. Get on the phone to the garage that halfway did the work and talk to them. If they give you the un around their are several ways to handle it. Ignore it, and go to another garage for fixing, take it bak to them for repair, seek legal advice, file a complaint the the bureau for automotive repair. Or just go postal and try to keep out of jail.
