If you think the fuel pressure is ok, it could be something electrical such as the coil breaking down when it gets hot.

1999 dodge durango "check guages" keeps coming on and oil monitor goes to zero when standing still. I checked the oil yesterday when it first happened and needed to add 2 qts. Oil guage still going to...


You could have either a bad gauge or bad oil pressure sending unit. I would start with the sending unit, it is cheaper and easier to replace.

Oil pressure question


Hello daebbers: My name is Roger and I will be glad to help you. I assume by the way your question is written you have no objectionable engine noise. I would suspect a bad oil pressure sending unit. To check the switch will require a mechanical oil presser test. You can buy a kit at any parts store. With a cold engine. Remove the oil switch from the block. Install the mechanical gauge. after all connections are tight start the engine. Note where the pressure is at. Observe the pressure through engine warm up. As the oil and engine warm up the oil pressure will drop. According to All Data information the oil pressure at curb idle is 6 psi. This would be a min. oil pressure. If the oil pressure is higher then that is great also. Any thing less you have a internal oil leak. This would likely be a bearing issue.
PLease rate the quality of your answer. This way we know the answer you received was helpful.Should you need further help please just ask. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

1998 dodge 3500 check engine comes on


have the engine oil pressure checked with a mechanical guage, if it is about 15 PSI hot replace the sending unit for the guage, u will need to buy a special deep oil pressure sending unit socket for this job, they are made by KD and Lisle tools, they can be bought at NAPA.

It could just be your oil filter.
But most likely a weak pump, or a clogged pickup screen in the oil pan

2001 Dodge Dakota 3.9L oil pressure


The pickup tube is a bad design in these engines, I have fixed several with the same problem, you can weld on a GM screen move it 1/4 of a inch away from the pan or add 1 inch to the bottom of the pan, (use a high volume pump) the problem is the screen is too close and too small and will pick up any sludge off the bottom. also it's great to make a access plate on the bottom of the pan using a Volkswagen Bug oil cover plate, it can be removed with bolts after a oil drain to clean the screen without the hassle of removing the whole oil pan by lifting the engine on these trucks. Good Luck

OIL PRESSURE LIGHT INTERMINTENLY GOES OFF AND ON


Keep checking those Fluids. it sounds a lot like your Oil pump is taking a Slow Death March. At some point you will need to replace it.
