Keep checking those Fluids. it sounds a lot like your Oil pump is taking a Slow Death March. At some point you will need to replace it.

I have a dodge caravan 1998 3Lv6 every time the van warms up the oil light comes on. Now when I go a speed of 60 the light comes on and stays on until i give it gas. Would this be the oil sensor? And if so...


The oil pressure switch is located on the engine block, just above and towards the drivers side of the oil filter. You should take this to a shop and have them check the oil pressure just to be safe.

After the oil was changed on my 2005 Dodge Van, the oil service light keeps coming on. If I turn the van off and restart it, the light goes out and stays out until I restart it again. I had the oil changed...


First... Read your owners manual - page 226 - Turn the ingnition switch to ON (do not start) and fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 10 seconds and then turn the ignition switch to OFF position.
Good luck and keep me posted.

Oil pressure question


Hello daebbers: My name is Roger and I will be glad to help you. I assume by the way your question is written you have no objectionable engine noise. I would suspect a bad oil pressure sending unit. To check the switch will require a mechanical oil presser test. You can buy a kit at any parts store. With a cold engine. Remove the oil switch from the block. Install the mechanical gauge. after all connections are tight start the engine. Note where the pressure is at. Observe the pressure through engine warm up. As the oil and engine warm up the oil pressure will drop. According to All Data information the oil pressure at curb idle is 6 psi. This would be a min. oil pressure. If the oil pressure is higher then that is great also. Any thing less you have a internal oil leak. This would likely be a bearing issue.
PLease rate the quality of your answer. This way we know the answer you received was helpful.Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

1998 dodge 3500 check engine comes on


have the engine oil pressure checked with a mechanical guage, if it is about 15 PSI hot replace the sending unit for the guage, u will need to buy a special deep oil pressure sending unit socket for this job, they are made by KD and Lisle tools, they can be bought at NAPA.

Dodge caravan '98, oil light on, plenty of oil


If the engine is not making any knocking type noises, check the oil pressure sending unit. If it is leaking oil then it needs to be replaced along with removing the rubber plug from the connector and cleaning the terminals. If the oil light still comes on then the oil pressure is definately low and could cause engine failure.

98 Grand Caravan Sport oil light and Warning Bell


My friend that alarm is telling you u have low oil pressure, do you want to destroy the new engine?? Find out if the eng really has low oil pressure, it may just be a defective oil press sending unit causing the alarm, have the press checked with a mechanical guage or just replace the sender and see if that cures the issue, the alarm is part of the Body Control Module and can't be disconnected.
