Question about 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Minivan
Turned car toward home, it stopped. Maintenance manual states that with low oil pressure a chime should sound for four minutes, it did not. Return to service man, filter and oil replaced, drove 50 miles, advised it was apparently all right except for a "clicking noise" which he thought might be valve lifters or valves. Did a computer turn the car off as it stopped automatically. What type of problem may I be faced with? car still in guarantee, only 34,000 miles
Whats the dealer say about that, did you contact dealer? You may have void your guarantee, for having someone else chg. your oil, I don't know the deal you have with the dealer. But if the person you had chg. the oil, and he admits to not doing it right (witch i am sure he has other wise he would not try to make it right buy doing what he did), than i would think he is responsible for any damages that have incured. Some new cars are equiped with an automatic shut down when oil pressure falls below a certain p.s.i. The thing is you don't know what damage was done if any, and may not show up until later or maybe not at all, do you want to take that chance. I am taken for granted it did not make any clicking noise before the oil was changed right? You better contact dealer just so you know if your covered if something was to happend.

If you are experiencing clicking noises still, and engine oil is OK.
It sounds like you have done mechanical damage due to running engine excessively low on oil.
Normally the crank journals, and big ends, the first to suffer,when oil pressure is lost, which also will give tapping noises.(expensive!)
You really need to take the car to a professional, to have a listen too, and to give his opinion.
And go from there !
Good Luck !
