Question about Dodge Ram 2500

Oil leak from fill cap

Have a 2004 ram 2500 that is leaking oil from the fill cap. From what I've heard the ccv filter on these are not an actual filter just a separator. The oil is not expanding,meaning no fuel or coolant entering the lube system. It has an oil loss. Is this common on the 5.9l Cummins engines?

There should be 2 plugs in the trans - one for drain and one to fill. Just make sure you use the correct fluid - chack with your dealer.

It will not go off by itself,you will need to reset it by connecting to a diagnostic tool.Once cleared if there is any other problem then it will trigger the check engine light again.Hope this helps..

Oil leak


Not sure where your oil pressure sender is on that engine, but usually they are close to the filter. Or perhaps leaning on the top of the engine, like the fill cap, cracked something. Another possibility is a bad gasket on the new oil filter or overfill by 1 quart.

We just changed the spark plugs , oil and air filter in my 2004 dodge ram 2500 hemi and now it wont stay started unless you keep your foot on the gas


Make sure that all the hoses are connected properly. If the intake has any leaks between the throttle body and the air filter housing the computer will not see air entering the engine and you will have this problem.

2004 Doge Ram 2500 5.7 Hemi 190K mile had oil pressure gauge drop to ZERO and check gauges light come on and engine shut down.. Check oil 1 guart low, add oil. let cool. crank up, good gauges drove home 45...


If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

Oil leak


There's not much over there that can leak except for the filter. That diesel oil is heavy and persistent too. It'll drip from those steering linkages forever after a filter change. Check your turbo fittings too. It gets oil and then sends it back to the motor.

2006 hyundai sonata oil filter leak


I finally figured this out. I was putting the o-ring on incorrectly. I actually had two o-rings installed.
The o-ring should not be visible when it is tightened down. The plastic should be touching the metal housing. The o-ring sits inside the housing, right above the threads, but not at the top. Two pictures attached._388.jpg

Hi have a nice day!
Check EVAP Emission Control System Vent Circuit.

DESCRIPTION The evaporative system prevents hydrocarbon (HC) vapors from the fuel tank escaping into the atmosphere where they would form photochemical smog. Gasoline vapors are collected in the charcoal canister. The Canister Close Valve (CCV) closes off the air inlet to the canister for leak detection of the evaporative emission system. The CCV also prevents fuel vapors from escaping from the canister. When the engine purges HC vapors from canister, the clean air comes into the canister through canister air-filter and CCV. If open error message displayed is "P0447" If shorted error message is "P0448"
