Spark knocks going up hills also temp gage not working

What do u mean by spark knock? Missfire? Temp gauge not working could be a few things, sender fault, no water, gauge fault or wiring. Check u have water in it. Then find the sender and earth it out, gauge should go all the way up, if it does replace the temp sender, if not it's gauge or wiring. Let me know about the spark knock.. Not sure what u mean

2008 1500 suburban, pickedcar up after getting tires replaced, on way home oil pressure dropped and low oil pressure warning came on. Stopped checked oil level it was ok. started car was back at 35 to 40...

If your sending unit is one wire, unhook it from the sender and place a jumper wire from wire to ground. Turn ign on, gauge should pep high PSI. Two wire plug, place jumper between contacts of wires (unplugged). Same thing. What this does is isolate the gauge. If gauge pegs on test, replace sender. If it does it again with new sender, it's the pump. But it's probably the sender.

While driving my 2005 ram 2500 my oil gauge will go down to low and check gauge light comes on, so I pull over immediately then re-start engine and oil works agin for a while and then it happens again, I...

I would stop driving it right away and test the oil pressure with a gauge. If at an idle when its cool you don't hit 30-40 psi....change the oil pump. The knocking is probably your main bearings. While your installing a new oil pump, put new mains in.

1996 Mazda MPV 4 WD. Mechanic installed new belts and the temp gauge is not working now. How can I fix this? Loose wire?

Yes the wire must have been knocked off when the mechanic fixed the belt. Look under the hood for temperature sensor. Its on the motor near the front around the area where the thermostat goes. You may find the wire close by and a "bare" terminal to put it on. Otherwise go back to the mechanic and have him put it back on since he knocked it off in the first place!

Temp. gauge goes to HOT immediately sometimes recently had serpentine and power steering belts replaced and put anti freeze in overflow tank and radiator

Sounds like when you last had someone work on your car, they knocked the wire going to the sending unit off. Look around the thermosat housing, normally located were the upper radiator hose goes to the engine. Most cars have the temp sensor on or around this area of the engine. Most gauges show hot if this wire touches ground(any metal part of car) but some work in reverse.
