Oil pressure light comes on every now and again 1995 dodge ram van b2500 5.9l non turbo


The only way to know if you need engine repair or you have a bad sender is to hook up an oil pressure test gage to the sender port and manually check the pressure. You will need the deep oil pressure sending unit removal tool to get the sender out (I did this).

1989 Dodge Ram 250 with 318 motor, oil pressure gage has quit working, engine oil is at proper level, someone said that there is some kind of an oil service switch that my need replaced.


you have an oil pressure sending unit located at rear of engine next to distributor. that would cause the oil gauge not to work. also look for a short in electrical wires to oil sending unit. hope this will help!!!

2006 Dodge Magnum oil pressure light just came on what can cause this


Low oil pressure..possibly caused by not enough oil, possibly caused by a faulty oil pump...also if it has been quite a while since your last oil change, the oil tends to loose viscosity and the pressure will not be at optimum amount. I would first check the oil to make sure it is at the full mark. If it has been over 5000 miles since your last change, I would change the oil and filter. If these suggestions do not correct the issue, you then will need to check the oil sending unit to make sure the light is not sending a bad signal...if the sending unit is faulty, you have a more serious problem. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!

I have a 1995 Chevy Lumina with the ''Low Oil'' light on.


may be the oil sending unit is bad
may be the oil pump
is there any noise in the engine?
have the oil pressure check at a repair shop to make sure you have enough oil pressure
if it's ok then have the shop replace the switch while they have the old one out to check the pressure

I have a 2005 dodge magnum, an the iol light started comin on wen i am parked, wats causing that, i already had oil changed.


try replacing the oil sending unit first,
it tells the gauge on your dash how much pressure you have,if your light comes on it means you don't have oil pressure,so change the sending unit to see if this takes care of it,

Loss of oil pressure


Loss of oil pressure can be any of the following: defective oil gauge, defective oil gauge sending unit, defective oil pump, worn rod and main bearings, plugged oil pickup screen, insufficient oil in engine hole in oil pickup tube, etc. Many issues can cause low oil pressure. Take it to a mechanic for proper diagnosis.

1989 dodge ram 150 4/w drive pickup has no oil pressure showing on the gage, driving or sitting still.


You need to have a oil pressure guage hooked up to see if you have a bad guage, sending unit to the guage, or if your oil pressure is actually low. Any garage should be able to do this, if you can't get one.
