Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi, you don't say how many miles are on this truck, but I am going to assume you have at least 100,000 on it.Depending on how the truck has been treat over it's life I would start with removing the spark plugs and seeing if they're oil soaked or black. If they are then I would start to look at piston rings, which usually means a rebuild. You can have the valve guides checked also, oil may be leaking past them and dropping onto your pistons.

I would think you found the low pressure port by now? But just in case most Dodge trucks I have seen have the low pressure port just above the compressor on the suction line. Of coarse leave it to Dodge to move it on some applications? Good Luck !

The power steering pump is piggie backed to the vacuum pump. The seal in the back of the vacuum pump has engin oil under presure behind it cousing a leak that gets worse over time. Cummins make a seal kit to fix this leak.

you need to put an oil pressure gauge on it and see what happens.what you will find is that the sender unit is no good.
