SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Dakota 3.9L oil pressure

The pickup tube is a bad design in these engines, I have fixed several with the same problem, you can weld on a GM screen move it 1/4 of a inch away from the pan or add 1 inch to the bottom of the pan, (use a high volume pump) the problem is the screen is too close and too small and will pick up any sludge off the bottom. also it's great to make a access plate on the bottom of the pan using a Volkswagen Bug oil cover plate, it can be removed with bolts after a oil drain to clean the screen without the hassle of removing the whole oil pan by lifting the engine on these trucks. Good Luck

SOURCE: how do i change the power steering pressure switch

From the Factory Service Manual, you can get one relatively cheap from www.promanuals.net. Here is a link to your 2004 Dodge Ram Service Manual.

The power steering pressure switch is installed in
the power steering high-pressure hose (Fig. 9).

(1) Disconnect electrical connector from power
steering pressure switch.
(2) Place a small container or shop towel beneath
switch to collect any excess fluid.
(3) Remove switch. Use back-up wrench on power
steering line to prevent line bending.

2013 dodge ram 1500 5.7 l hemi got flactuating oil presure on low rpm


Since its a 2013.. i doubt if its a bad pump.. unless you have overheaded the engine and caused internal damage.. buy a cheap guage and install it.. replace the oil sender unit with the hose or new sender that comes with the new guage.. and find out really what your oil pressure is..

My 2007 Dodge ram 1500 with hemi has 2 codes po524 and po406 are they related


In both cases, there is a software update available for this condition. It involves having the dealer connector their StarScan tool to your truck and reprogramming the PCM.

DTC P0406 - EGR Sensor "A" circuit "High"
There is updated software available for your PCM that will correct this code if your vehicle was built prior to mid February 07. If it was built after that, then the EGR valve will need replacing (this is not unusual). Keep in mind that could be time for a new valve, but you dont will need to change the tube, but new gaskets are a good idea.

DTC P0524 - Oil Pressure Too Low Oil pressure sending unit (sensor) voltage input above the maximum acceptaple voltage.
If the software is up to date, then have the oil pressure sensing unit must be replaced.

Additionally, check this TSB SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 18-044-07, DATED OCTOBER 12, 2007, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES. ALL

PO524 WHAT DOES IT MEAN


Hi John,
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0524 has a generic description of "Oil Pressure Too Low."
There are SEVERAL things to consider here:
First: Your engine is VERY sensitive to oil viscosity. Since it came up right after an oil change, I would question whether the correct viscosity oil was used. Also, if there has been any aftermarket fluids/chemicals added to the engine oil (like those that make claims to clean your crank case) this can have an adverse affect on oil viscosity.
Second, The actual oil pressure should be checked with a manual gauge to verify proper oil pressure sending unit operation and to see if a low oil pressure condition actually exists.
Finally, If everything is OK in the items listed above, there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) published for your truck that has to do with "false" code P0542. It requires an update of your computer software to correct it. The TSB Number is 18-003-08.
If your truck requires the software update, it can be done at the dealership for free if your vehicle is still covered under the 8-year/80,000 mile emissions warranty. (It should be covered unless you have more than 80,000 miles)

Computer is showing a PO524 code.


I know in the 2008 models there was a problem to where you had to have a update done through a scanner (called a reflash I think). P0524 means low oil pressure. Pretty sure this TSB was for Rams from like 2002 - 2008 but don't quote me on that.

1989 dodge ram 150 4/w drive pickup has no oil pressure showing on the gage, driving or sitting still.


You need to have a oil pressure guage hooked up to see if you have a bad guage, sending unit to the guage, or if your oil pressure is actually low. Any garage should be able to do this, if you can't get one.
