I have a 2003 dodge Dakota 3.9 l need to know what should the oil pressure be


Normal at idle is around 30psi and at driving speed 50-60psi.
Engine temp and other factors can make that higher or lower.

My engine is idling very high


High idle speed is an indication of a vacuum leak. Listen for a small whistle. Find the whistle sound, you will find the leak. Now repair the bad hose, or broken plastic tube with a small chunk of hose that will fit over the tube. If it is more major, it could be an intake manifold gasket. The engine uses an idle air motor to control engine RPM. After fixing the vacuum leak, the engine may not idle at all, until you drive the car for about 5 minutes above 40 MPH. The idle air motor resets itself to 0.

Oil pressure gauge drops to zero at idle. Do I have a switch or senzor and where is it?


If your oil pressure is dropping to zero at an idle, then I would quit driving the vehicle. It is very possible that the engine is low on oil. Or that the oil pump is going bad. If you continue to drive the vehicle, you could ruin the engine. There is a oil pressure sending unit that could be bad. But if the oil pressure goes up when it is above an idle, then the sending unit is probably ok.

Jus tuned my b16a2 with vafc.The idling is ok but when i drive for a while the rpm suddenly shoots up to 2500 rpm and also checklight appears thus changing the idle status after the drive.When i reset it...


I'd look for a vacuum leak, or a problem with the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS, harness disconnected? Broken/damaged wiring?) or Idle Air Control (IAC, cold be harness or dirty and sticking). Your ECM keeps detecting the problem so resetting it will not fix it-it has to be one of the above issues.

block off vacuum hose to brake booster and see if idle returns to normal if it does you need new brake booster has hole in diaphram internally some times slight hissing noise is evident in cab when pressing brake pedal to section where engine surges or idles high. also check for fuel leaks from hoses if you can smell fuel in engine bay while running and engine warm some leaks only leak while running and hot

V6 engine idles rough after restarting, then smooths out


My first guess would be a dirty carb/fuel injector set. Run some fuel cleaner through the tank and see if it gets better. You might have to do it through a couple of tanksful. How long since you've had a tune-up? It might just be that time.

Won't idle after replacing battery, engine dies.


Hansandfranz is 1/2 correct; the car does need an "Idle Relearn", but, you do NOT need a scan tool for this. The vehicle just needs to be driven for the ECu to relearn the "base idle".
Get in, drive it down the highway. Do some passing gear downshifts. Pull off to the side of the road, let it idle for 30 seconds, repeat 2 more times. Then, try to duplicate some "in-town" (stop & go") driving, for about 15 minutes.
This will reset the "base idle", and your stalling condition will disappear. Expect to have to do this again if you replace the battery. Very common; the Computer (ECU) loses the base idle parameters when the battery is disconnected. Easily rectified just by driving as mentioned above. Feel free to comment back if you have any other questions.
