I install new oil sensor switch and change oil and filter. but still dont help

Doesn't help with what? Does your oil pressure light stay on?

If so, you will need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical oil pressure gauge-any shop can do it, only takes a few minutes. If pressure is below the specification for your engine, it could be an oil pump seal, a pickup tube gasket, a worn oil pump, or worn crankshaft bearings. On high mileage engines, worn crank bearings are a good possibility. Ask a local pro for advice.

Check engine light is on. Engine sounds like it's knocking. And oil light is coming on. This 2008 Dodge Dakota has only 63,000 miles.

Sometimes that light means overfill oil
Sometimes after changing oil if they put too much that happens
Check the oil level on cold in level place (give it like an hour or so) for the light to reset
If after that the light still on take it to a tech.

Good luck

I have a 2001 dodge Dakota and it was repaired and now no oil pressure shows on gauge and oil smells like gas and the thing is tapping bad. the head gasket was replaced.

This is probably not going to turn out well. Why was the head gasket replaced? If the gasket was blown allowing water to enter the oil (the chocolate milk effect), it's possible that if the engine was run too long in this manner that the piston rings may have scoured the cylinder walls due to the lack of lubrication that this condition would cause. This may not be evident at time of repair, but the mechanic should have performed a before and after repair cylinder compression check to verify that there are no problems. It sounds as though you have had serious cylinder wear, allowing fuel to blow by the pistons during the compression and power stroke of the engine. This will cause the oil to become gasoline contaminated, resulting in reduced lubricating properties and causing additional wear and the tapping sound you hear. You are probably on the hook for a complete engine overhaul or replacement by the sound of things.

92' dodge dakota has coolent in the oil

Most likely, it's a blown head gasket but, it could also be a cracked head or a cracked block. Get it fixed ASAP to prevent destroying all your motor bearings. Once the coolant gets into the oil, it's a race against time to get it fixed. The moisture will pit the bearing surfaces and that will destroy them.
