After the hand on the gauge goes to the halfway mark, I notice that sometimes the hand begins to go back slightly toward the cold mark. Is this a thermostat problem. It does not go to the HOT overheating point, but sometimes to the cold side but not all the way. Is this a thermostat or some other heater/coolant problem?

Oil gauge on 91 Dodge Dakota suddenly running very high but plenty of oil


have a mechanic test the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge
it is more than likely that the electric sender unit has failed and is sticking internally
the tic noise could be a relay working from an intermittent power supply or bad ground

Cooling Fan running


check your coolant level for anti freeze strength and also check your thermostat is opening fully, to do this take out the thermostat and place it in a bold of hot water you will see it closing then place it in a cold bowl of water an you should see it opening, Also check your temp sender for a few bucks you may as well change it out though.

When you said you replaced everything, did that include the temperature sending unit?
The temperature sensor just operates the cooling fan or fans for the radiator.
The temperature sending unit operates the temperature gauge in the dashboard. If that thing is faulty, the gauge won't work right.
If you did change the sending unit, it could be possible that the computor is screwing it up, but in my 41 years as a mechanic I never heard of it, when a computor goes, nothing works.

Someone took out the distributor


Remove sparkplugs, turn engine by hand to top dead center (when #1 piston is all the way up, full compression), look at distributor with the cap on it and rotor, align rotor to where #1 spark plug wire position, remove cap, remember or mark where rotor position is, then insert in engine, as in goes into slot, it will turn slightly,notice how far it moved asit went in, remove again and turn rotor back alittle so as to get it aligned to #1 position, once you got it close to were its on #1, see if there are old markings on the part of distributor shaft that may give you an idea where the clamp down piece made contact and set it there. tighten just enough to where you can rotate dirstributor by hand, put everything back together and try to start. play with distributor little at a time 'til it starts usually around halfway point.
