Can you keep the vehicle running if you keep the accelerator pedal depressed?
Do you have an engine check warning light illuminated?
Is there oil in the engine?

Assuming the oil level is fine and you have no check engine light illuminated, then I would suggest checking the following in this order:

1) Throttle body and idle control valve. Clean these thoroughly and rebuild.

2) O2 sensor in the exhaust. A poor reading can result in poor mixture control. You may also suffer poor gas mileage if this is at fault.

3) Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve possibly faulty.

SOURCE: Engine turns over but wont start

Check the cam sensor and crankshaft sensor. If either of these are defective the engine will not start or may start intermittenly.

SOURCE: Come to stop 99 Ram oil pressure drops to 0 check gauges light.

Change the oil! The 318Cu in V8 (5.2 liter) engine has a problem with sludge build up on the oil pump pickup tube screen. This engine requires oil changes at or before 3500 miles with a high detergent oil.

SOURCE: 2004 dodge ram 4.7 no oil pressure reading until you turn it off

The oil pump either works or it doesn't, so it's not the problem. Check the wire connection at the pressure sending unit. The wire may be broken at the connector, or you may need to replace the sending unit.

Has 358000 miles, just had leaks repaired. Twice since my oil pressure gauge reads no pressure but not all the time? Why


1. Oil Pressure Gauge Not Working You will notice this happens when your oil pressure gauge is not reading, whether the engine is turned off, idle or running. Try to step on the gas to rev up the engine. If the oil pressure gauge still doesn't change its reading, your gauge is busted. It's best to replace it as soon as possible because you won't have any idea if your car is already overheating or not.
2. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too Low When your engine is idle, the oil pressure gauge will have a low reading. When the engine starts running or when you're already cruising or on the freeway, your gauge's reading should have increased. If it stays on a low reading, then you now your oil pressure gauge is broken.
3. Oil Pressure Gauge Reading Too High Another common oil pressure gauge problem is when your oil pressure gauge is reading too high when your engine is idle or when it's turned off. Rep

2002 international 4400 truck W DT466e engine No start after replacing air brake compresser


It doesn't make any sense that you HP pump died while you were replacing the air compressor. Also, I don't think the crank circuit has to see oil pressure in order for the starter to turn...where would the pressure come from if not the pump rotating , how were you going to test for pressure if the starter isn't supposed to crank with a gauge installed? Does the A/C gear drive the oil pump?

Oil Pressure Gauge not working on my 2005 Yukon XL


Those gauges are electric now, check to see if the wire is on good. The sending unit can fail, cheap and easy once you find it, but requires a special socket, get that at the same time.

2001 Tahoe will start but dies immediately


It is better to have a Higher Oil Pressure.. When shut off it reading 40 is just the gauge I would think. On my 78 Chevy the gauge will not zero out untill the next day when I go to start it and turn the key over. You might try running some Fuel stabilizer through it, Possibly a better Grade gas.. As the oil goes, If you are loosing oil I advise checking it Weekly, and add oil as needed.. to maintain the proper running level.. Change every 5000 miles or so as normal, Also Change filter each time you change the oil. I hope this helps a little. Good luck!

2004 gmc sonoma why does it take 2-3 times cranking before it starts and only does it sometimes?


install pressure gauge and watch when key is turned off to see if pressure drops to zero if so bad drain back valve in fuel pump replace it or deal with it or could be cheap aftermarket pump and has hard time building unnecessary pressure to open poppet valves between before fuel injectors

2002 Pontiac oil gauge read full pressure at all


The oil sending unit has gone bad and needs to be replaced. The sensor is under the exhaust manifold and above the oil filter on the V6. Replace the oil pressure sending unit, once they fail they may start to leak oil soon. Good luck and keep me posted.

Changed oil pressure switch,still no oil pressure


The fuel pump on that model runs through the oil pressure switch so that if the truck looses oil pressure,It kills power to the fuel pump to prevent engine damage.you need to find the cause of the low oil pressure reading(possibly a bad oil switch).That would be the cheapest place to start,or have it checked with a mechanical gauge.Good luck,
