That really sounds bad, most of the time the drop in oil pressure is because the pickup screen that is down in the oil pan is clogged, it has a very small opening that gets clogged with hard deposits it must be cleaned or replaced, wont go over 30 is another thing, but the oil pressure must be fixed first

SOURCE: 1996 DODGE RAM 1500 LOSES OIL PRESSURE AFTER

There are several reasons. The oil viscosity can make a difference and if the oil is contaminated with fuel. Wear in the oil pump and all of your bearings starting with the main crankshaft bearings and the connecting rod bearings. The wrong or bad oil filter.
When cold oil flows it plugs leaking bearings and oil gears. When the oil warms, the wear in the bearings (gaps) can't hold back the thin oil and the pressure drops. If the bearings are replaced before the crank and cam are damaged, the pressure will be maintained.

My 1998 dodge ram 1500 5.2 suddenly lossed oil pressure


Could be just the sending unit for the gauge or warning light.
If it really did loose oil pressure it could be the oil pump or the screen in the pan.

My 1998 dodge ram 4x4 is dropping oil pressure, I replaced the oil pump but it is still dropping to 30. any suggestions?


I'm assuming that pressure is at an engine speed of 1500 RPM or more. You could have excessive clearance in the main, rod and/or cam bearings. No easy way to check.
