Question about Dodge Ram 1500
Long story kinda short- dodge not running for 6 years. Got new distributor, water pump, spark plugs and spark plug wires, new radiator also. Went to have all the fluids changed, oil, gear oil etc. Driving home- low oil pressure light comes on everything loses power and I have to pull over. Will not start since then. Cranks but no fire. Low oil pressure light still on, but the gauge is in the middle. I changed the oil pressure sending unit this morning. Still no change. I'm at a loss.
Check your distributor pick up wires, make sure they are not crossing.

you can try changing the ignition coil, I own a 97 Dodge 1500 and mine did the same and thats what i had to do.

I think you have ruled out the engine with all the parts you have replace. The transmission torque convertor is in lock up mode all the time. The engine is having to hard of a time to stay at the normal idle. The over drive clutches and soleniod are most likely damaged in the transmission.
I think you should take the vehicle to a trasnmission shop , The can check the torque convetror soleniods and pressure control soleniod.
The oil light coming on bothers me. I know you have the rebuilt engine in the vehicle but I think the oil pump in the engine is starting to go out or could be weak. The lower bearings connected to the crank shaft might be starting to leak. Have the oil pressure checked .

Had the truck the truck to the shop and they said it was the sensor. I had it replaced and it hasn't screwed up since. If you search out this problem on the net, this is a problem with engine and its oil pressure sensor. Apparently, Chrysler is aware of the problem.

have it tested using a manual gage if still low then main baring ore most likely bad that would mean a over hall if is really low and bearings bad should be making rattle noise when started up first few seconds
