Question about 1999 Dodge Durango
First of all let me say that this happened after we had a ice storm, I hit a large amount of water....as soon as i did the oil pressure dropped to 0. I was lucky to be very close to work so I left it in the parking lot and after i got off work it started fine...oil pressure seemed to be fine so i left it running to warm up but when i went back out the pressure dropped to 0 again. If you turn the truck off and then back on the pressure will be fine, but a few minutes later it will drop to 0....what could cause this problem? I'd like to have a few ideas before i have it towed to the mechanic.
Locate your oil pressure sending sensor... generally near the oil filter intake but not always... give it a spray of WD40 to repel any water on it. next have the oil pressure tested just to be certain. the relay for the sending unit may need to be replaced as well... it's located likely in the fuse box in the engine compartment near the battery.
Please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks
