Question about 2003 Dodge Durango

Error code P 0522 What to do?

Friday on my way home my 2003 dodge durango started to bog down but I hit the gas and it picked back up. It did this twice more and the third time it died and had to be pushed home. I was close thankfully because the truck had not been acting funny prior to this. Yesterday I had the alternator checked, bought a brand new battery and checked all the fluids and they are fine. After doing a little research today, I did the key trick and got an error code of P 0522 which I've read to be the engine oil pressure sensor/switch/low voltage. Now I'm no mechanic, I am a single mother who will work on my vehicle within reason because I'm broke. What I want to know is this: Is changing the pressure sensor something that I can personally do without screwing up something else? And if so, where can I find good directions to do it? Also, is it possible that it is just a fuse in the distribution center controlling that sensor that may need to be replaced? I just spent $195 last week on the upper control arm bushings and I'm not in a position to be nickle and dimed. Any help is appreciated!

    Thank you! My new problem now is locating one...Autozone doesn't carry them and checkers has them on back order with a shipment expected in the next 7-10 months...This sucks! Every other parts place is closed on Sunday. I'm going to get under there in the mean time and make sure there is a good connection and with any luck I'm just a victim of a speed bump jogging it loose or something.

Rama 2003 Durango out of gas now wont start what's the problem

Fuel pump died. Older pumps don't like running dry. Hit the bottom of the tank, this will jar the pump and possible bring it back to life. But you still need to replace it, as it will die at any time you shut the vehicle off. then some day , you won't be able to resurrect it.

Acceleration problems

the usual culpit is a clogged fuel filter, or bad plugs. if it bogs down on hills or highway it is the filter. also make sure air filter is clean.
