With fluctuating oil pressure and metal in the oil you have a fault in the bearings on the crankshaft ( probably main bearing slipper spinning in cap) Best way is to pull the engine , put in stand and tip up side down Quicker in the long run

SOURCE: oil sending unit

I have heard sludge buildup can be an issue with Dodge engines in Durangos. Make sure sludge is not blocking oil flow and reducing pressure.

SOURCE: Volvo 850 oil pressure sending unit

It's on the engine, right next to the starter, it has one wire going to it. You don't need to drain the oil. If the light is coming on, you may have bad seals in the oil pan, a fairly common problem, but replacing the switch is a good fisrt step.

SOURCE: 02 cherokee losing oil pressure when accelerating, fine at idle.

Was the sending unit an aftermarket part?We like to install the original part back into most vehicle, but because of people price shopping, this can cause some issues. If the switch is working properly, the gauge should rise as the engine RPM's increase as you stated. With the key on and the engine off, disconnect the sending unit wire and ground it. The gauge should go to the highest reading, and that checks the wire, and the gauge. I suspect that the sending unit is failed or not the proper one for your vehicle.

2005 Dodge Durango Wont Start not the battery .Is my PCM Fried?


What is this red flashing light that you are talking about? Please specify the symbol that is in question. The owners manual has a section that covers the gauge cluster and what the warning lights mean. Is this light is a lock symbol or something referring to the vehicles anti-theft system. Could this light be the oil symbol? If this is the oil symbol then this issue could be related to low or poor oil quality (oil change needed), the oil pressure sending unit is faulty, the wiring to the oil pressure sending unit is damaged, or the oil pump or the oil pressure regulator is weak or damaged. I mentioned these two examples because they are related to a no start problem. If the engine light is on. You may obtain my diagnostic information if you have the engine codes read. Let me know how you are making out. If you have other questions please write back. good luck.

1999 dodge durango "check guages" keeps coming on and oil monitor goes to zero when standing still. I checked the oil yesterday when it first happened and needed to add 2 qts. Oil guage still going to...


You could have either a bad gauge or bad oil pressure sending unit. I would start with the sending unit, it is cheaper and easier to replace.

My oil pressure gauge is floating left to right....


I would replace the sending unit. It is an easy and cheap replacement compared to solving low oil pressure issues. If you really had low oil pressure than you would have heard noises like lifters clicking, rod knocks, etc.
