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.

    My Durango is doing the same thing but when the oil gauge fluctuates my temp gauge shoots all the way up to the red and then goes back down. My oil is full I checked all gauges. When I look under the hood nothing is smoking or looks too hot. What is this?

Durango check guage light on - ONLY the battery guage is high


You need to check the alternator regulator. if it lets the alternator go free, it will burn out the diodes.
This is a skilled task. If your not sure get help.

Oil light is on


May be bad oil pressure sending unit. Best way to check is to connect a mechanical oil pressure guage to engine and check pressures when engine is warm. Should be no lower than 40 psi at idle when warm, no higher than 70 psi at 2000 rpm.

2001 dodge durrango check gages light comes on why


When the check gages light comes on just after start up usually one or more gages have momentarily not picked up yet. Dodges are famous for this. If the light stays on for more than 10 seconds and all gages are working t could be a faulty sending unit or you may have to get the computer software reloaded at a dealer

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
