Question about 2004 Dodge Neon

1 Answer

Oil light comes on after about 10 minutes of running. usually turns on everytime i stop

After 10 minutes of running the oil light comes on only when i stop. turns off as soon as i hit the gas. this may continue for an hour or so. the problem began after camping about 11000 feet then the light first came on in a town about half the way down in altitute. f'n auto zone couldn't answer anything on a sunday. it continued for a couple of days every day i came to a stop, then stopped. i changed the oil and filter, and in the begging of the morning it does it almost everyday. i'm guessing maybe a sensor was knocked with a rock up north and the reading is false. be nice. any help would be nice. -kevin

I would take a look for the oil sending unit and check that the wire going to it is secure, as this sounds to be electrical. Good luck and remember to rate all the solutions you get, thanx.

I have a 2003 dodge neon and everytime I stop at a red light my oil light comes on but as soon as I take off it goes off. Oil has changed a month ago, it's full and still clean. What could cause t

Your motor is getting Tired or your Oil Pump is going bad.

Dodge has a problem with their motors and their Oil Passages get GUNKED really bad. This is what you should do,...

A. Get 1.5 Quarts of Diesel Fuel and drive to where you have your Oil changed

B. Add the Diesel Fuel to the Oil and let it IDLE (don't Drive the car under operating conditions). Let it Idle for 15-20 minutes and then have your Oil Changed

C. Have them use 20W-50 Oil, this is going to raise your oil Pressure and the light will not come on anymore.

Reason... Metal parts are wearing and that is oil gets into the system to lube the bearings. Pump Screen may be clogged and this will dissolve the Carbon Build up.

Good :Luck

Please clarify for me! Are you saying all the guage lights come on? And are you for sure it is not the brake light coming on?

And have you checked your fluids, oil, brake etc,.

The only reason I ask is that, I have guages light up also, but usually it is either the brake light or the air-bag light and mostly as you stated, when I'm coming to a stop or braking or even driving under 40 mph! Never when I'm on the Interstate.

I have air in my brake lines causing the brake light to come on, which I need bled bad, the air-bag is a fluke, I don't even like them, let alone trust them! I'm still driving though!

I would say, it's okay to drive, no more than you are driving it, but...

If your check engine light comes on & off, most likely you are getting low on some kind of fluid or something needs to be fixed?

When you have a chance go to Advance Auto or Auto Zone and ask them to test your car for a faulty sensor or switch...they do it for FREE! They hook a diagnostic machine up to your car, doesn't take too long a few minutes maybe, it will tell exactly what is wrong.

Kind Regards!

Vehicle: 2000 Dodge Ram 1500, 5.9L, Automatic Transmission, 171,000 miles. Vehicle will stop running, just shut off, after about 10 minutes of driving. Then after 5 minutes of waiting it will start again...

the first suspect is the igniton switch. when this happens, take the ign key and just barlely turn it, either way, not enough to go off/on just a little tweak, it the lights come back on or flicker, that ign switch will need replacement.

when key on and engine off, does the security light flash constantly? if so its shutting down the fuel pump, it starts momentarily due to the computer priming the engine with fuel. how to reset, turn key to run position, leave it on touch nothing, takes 10-12 minutes, start watching light around 10 minutes. it will stop flashing... turn key off, then back on and start this will reset the security system. they are sensitive on this platform car it will happen again. good luck!
