Question about 1998 Dodge Neon
1./ On my Dodge Neon, SOHC, 2L/125KKm, during first cold morning (-14degC)engine oil pressure light went ON after 10 min. driving. Return home and left engine to cool. Restarted the engine; Oil pressure was good for 4 to 5 min. then pressure light start flicker (app. 20 sec) and went ON; increasing engine speed to 50% oil pressure light went OFF.
- Engine Oil level is OK,
- Oil is new W5/30.
2./ 2 or 3 days after the weather was warm (6 to 7 degC)and I was driving the car 350 to 400km everything was OK !!??
3./ Now it is cold again (below freezing point, -14C) and I have the same problem with oil pressure.
* Is it possible that engine vapor frost inside engine oil circulation system causing decrease of oil pressure or any idea what is the problem???
You might try and change the pcv valve, my car hand a similar problem in the summer and i never changed it. the pressure blew my cam seal and i was leaking oil like crazy. i dont know if it will fix it but they are cheap. i would give it a try.
