It's inside the oil pan it has to be removed to be replaced.

    to bad they were rude, be sure it's not the sending unit first the oil pump can be changed from underneath the car if you rent a special engine jack and raise the engine up enoung to remove the pan,and thats the reason they are going bye bye. If you need more help let me know and I can give you detailed information to do the job with.

1998 dodge caravan stalls with oil light on


I would stop driving it if I were you. Sounds to me like it might be the pump or a line that is clogged. New oil can break loose deposits in your motor and will end up in a oil pump pickup line, filter, or pump. And for your safety, here is a complete list of recalls on your vehicle. If your vehicle is affected by one or more of these recalls, then you may qualify for a free repair! http://www.internetautoguide.com/auto-recalls/09-int/1998/dodge/caravan/index.html
Have a nice day. And have someone check your van.

Oil light came on when idling; oil changed; still happening occasionally. If I put it in park or neutral and rev it - the oil light goes out. Could it be the oil sending/pressure unit? Is there an easy way...


make sure are using a genuine dodge oil filter and correct grade of oil to check further you need to have the oil pressure checked using a master gauge a garage would do this for you if ok replace pressure switch if very low could be pump and bearing wear is the idle speed set too low i would check this

no reset for that!! check your oil pump pressure with a gauge and insure you have a working oil pump also check the oil filter to make sure the internal check valve isnt stuck! or the filter clogged or worn rod/main bearings

I am having oil problems.


it is very possible that it is the oil pump but before you change it check out the oil sending unit normally it is somewhere around the oil filter and to answer your question the oil pump is in the oil pan

LOW OIL LIGHT


well when oil is cold its thicker
as the vehicle heats up the oil becomes thinner in the oil pan
in which when the vehicle reaches core temp the oil pump doesnt need to work as hard

heres some other areas to look at
bad oil sending unit
in the pan the oil pick up pump filter needs replacement
oil filter clogged
bad oil sensor
vacume leak
these things need to look for and adjust or replace
the oil pick up pump in pan needs to be serviced by service tech at the dealers this is something a do it yourselfer could not do on own with out proper tools
