I have a 2005 dodge 1500 5.7 hemi it will not turn over but I can run a ground wire from the battery to the motor and it starts but surges and a lighting bolt light flashes in the dash what is wrong

You need to get a good heavy ground wire from the battery to the engine and not on the exhaust manifold. Then you need a good number 10 wire from the engine to the body. Now the factory did this but you have some corroded connections or damaged wires.

Check gauges light is on oil pressure gauge not ready pressure 2003 dodge hemi truck

My 04 4.7 did that to me once, I shut the truck off, restarted and it sprung to life. I've heard of early in the life cycle pump failure. Turn the key to on but give it a second or two before cranking it, if it still reads no pressure shut down and go from there.

Dodge/Chrysler EGR valves are known to be unreliable. The one on my wife's 05 Grand Caravan died in the 40k miles range.

They are not really serviceable. The usual fix is replacement. Part will be between $50 and $150 depending on where you get it. Installation most of the time is 2-4 bolts and the harness.

Oil pressure fluctuating

The sensor could be failing to read the lower pressure when the engine RPM slows down. Or the pump could be failing. I would replace the sensor and see if that doesn't correct the problem
