If light does not come on when key is in the "on" position, then first suspect a bad buld in the instrument panel. Find the oil pressure sending unit and ground the wire goin to the unit and see if light comes on (assuming the the bulb is good) if it does then the sending unit is defective. Replace the sending unit and retest.

Hope this helps.

You have to remove the oil pan - harmonic balancer - timing cover to replace timing chain... to replace cylinder head gasket and not the chain -- you need an assistant to hold the camshaft gear with chain on it. Suspending it with wire to keep the chain from moving the timing (do not let the chain relax as it will come off the crankshaft gear and change the timing)

For 1987 Dodge Truck RAM 50 4WD 2.6L 2BL 4cyl...

The mechanical fuel pump is mounted on the side of the head, centered between the runners of the intake manifold. The intake manifold does not require removal, but access can be tricky. A selection of socket extensions, swivels and open end wrenches can be helpful.

1987 dodge ram 50 pick/up rear lights not working but headlights work fine.also dash lights and radio lights are not working.


It could be a fuse? Have a look in the fuse box, your owners manual will detail where it is. Take a look at the top of each fuse to see if the thin piece of metal is burned out.

Steering gear fluid capacity and type of manual trasmission fluid?


Hello Dave,
I own a 1988 Ram 50 5-Standard and will go off my own experiences to answer this question.
I use a synthetic 80W transmission fluid.
If you know what is/was already in there; my recommendation is not to change the grade of oil in the transmission unless it is necessary because of driving conditions or vechicle requirements (i.e. towing/hauling/efficiency).
Anyway the Ram 50 Manual 4 & 5 Speed transmissions take a range of fluid grades from 70W-90W. You can use this in both conventional and synthetic oils.

For the power steering, universal power steering fluid works the best, and I honestly don't know the exact amount to put in Ram 50, but may I suggest you purchase ~20oz. Fill it half with half the bottle, then check the dipstick, then put in half of that half-bottle (a quarter of the bottle in), check, and repeat until you get it to the appropriate level.
