Question about 1992 Dodge Caravan
My husband hit a pot hole and busted the oil pan. After he fixed the oil pan my oil light would not go off, and when I check it it's full. After driving it like this for 2 days it started to make a really loud knocking noise and getting hot. After it started this I parked it, and now I have no clue what to do. Do you think that after he smashed the oil pan it pressed up against the oil pump causing it to stop working? Maybe that is why the oil light will not go off because the motor is not getting any oil.
Did he inspect the oil pick-up tube before putting new pan on? If the old pan was caved in roughly where pick-up tube would be in pan. it may have bent it up to a point where it doesn't **** up the oil, or the tube could be cracked above the oil level & sucking more air, than oil.
