92 voyager check gage light

I just recently changed the oil in my 1992 voyager, and after i let the van warm up for about 10 minutes, i get a check gages light. i checked gages and all levels are good. i checked oil levels and those are good as well, but the check gages light always goes out once i press on the gas, but comes back on once i let off gas. im not leaking oil or anything. what could be the issue?

    all other gages read fine, although sometimes when the light comes on the oil level goes down to nothing, but then goes completely normal once i press on the gas. and oil level shows full when i check dipstick.

That is the oil pressure gauge not the oil level gauge. Sometimes they can act that way when the oil is thin. When is the last time the oil was changed? Try using a heavier weight oil. When engines wear they require thicker oil. What size engine does you voyager have?

    Well at the point you are at it sounds like an oil pump but the first thing I would do is replace the oil pressure sending unit.

Why would my oil light be coming on and beeping even though I have a full oil reservoir?


if oil level is ok, your oil PRESSURE is dangerously low.
Either the wrong oil was used, or your oil pump is going bad.

Ill bet on wrong oil since you just had it changed,

Replace your oil pressure sender and see if the dash warning lights turn off. If after changing the oil pressure sender you still have oil pressure warning lights on, you may have to replace your oil pump in your oil pan.

1992 plymouth voyager oil guage issue


All I can think is that there is fault with the type of oil or the oil pump mechanism or oil pressure switch or oil pressure relief valve. When cold the oil is viscous and the pump will have little difficulty in maintaining adequate oil pressure. As the oil gets hot its viscosity is very much reduced and flows with ease and the pump has to work so much more effectively to maintain pressure. The speed of the pump is governed by engine revs so as you 'press on the gas' that pump whirls around making pressure. As soon as the engine revs drop the hot oil slips past the pump vanes and the pressure drops. Remedy: Use a 5/40 or a 10/50 grade oil. These left number indicates viscosity when cold (5 is less viscous than 10 when cold) and the second number indicates viscosity when hot. If you live in one of the northern states and suffer very cold winters try 0/40 grade as this will cause less strain on the starter motor, battery and oil pump when starting in the cold. Try and choose a large figure (45 or 50) for the second number as this indicates a higher viscosity when hot, a good thing for older engines with greater wear and tolerances. I think it is no coincidence that the problem you have seen started immediately after you did an oil change and this should fix it. If this results in no joy check out the pressure relief valve in the engine block: a tired or broken spring will not allow enough pressure build up. The oil sender is probably OK but "if in doubt change it out". All the above are relatively inexpensive but if they fail to solve the problem its time to look at the oil pump assembly. This should be accessibly once the oil sump cover on the bottom of the engine is removed. You'll need a workshop manual, some good tools and an extensive vocabulary of expletives to call on. Enjoy!

92 voyager seems to run a shift normally for about the first 10 minutes of driving then it will hesitate on downshift when coming to a stop. Shortly after that when accelerating it may lunge a little then...


It almost sounds like your lock up torque convertor is not un-locking, or sticking in overdrive.
I would plug in anOBD II reader to find out what the code is.
Please let me know.

Sometimes there are two fuse boxes. The companies like to mess with you. Usually theres one under the hood and one inside the cab, under the driver's side steering controls, ie: lay on the floor by the pedals and look up, or if you open the door and look at the dash from the side it could be there.

It really does sound like a fuse problem. Have you tried testing the fuse with a multimeter?
