It's telling you there is a problem detected in the emission system. Have someone attach either a scan-tool or code reader to pull the code(s). Post them back here if needed for advice. Some auto parts stores will pull the codes for you for free, such as AutoZone. DO NOT however listen to any of their diagnostic advice or purchase parts based solely on a logged code - never met one of these people yet who knew diddly about actual repairs.

I have a 01dodge RAM 1500 and the oil gauge keeps going from 40 to 0 and the check gauges light keeps coming on but I checked the oil and it's fine, what could be the reason for this


1. You need to have an independent oil pressure gauge hooked up to the engine to check the oil pressures at various RPMs and to verify the 40 to zero drop. This will eliminate any issue with the pressure gauge or the sending unit.

2. The oil pressure variation can be caused by an intermittent blockage in the oil pick up or an intermittent sticking oil pressure relief valve. I would possibly suspect the latter if you are getting good pressure and it is intermittently dropping to zero and going back up again..
If you or previous owners have not maintained the engine with frequent oil changes you will get a sludge build up problem in the engine and this will be evident by just dropping the engine sump.

3. If you have had a check engine light warning then you need to have the vehicle scanned to see what fault codes have been generated by the computer. There will be some related to the intermittent loss of oil pressure but there may be others also..

4. You need to have the oil pressure problem checked out immediately. Running the engine when you constantly lose oil pressure intermittently will definitely cause engine damage due to a loss of both lubrication and oil cooling to critical components.

I have a check engine intermittent light with some shaking in the engine also intermittent, also air bag light comes on intermitently.


Something shaking is almost always a cylinder misfiring.
Which is usually a bad plug or wire. But it could also be an intake manifold vacuum leak.

Check engine light comes on intermittently,


the 1st thing u need to do is have the system computer tested for trouble codes, anytime the light comes on a trouble code is stored, there are over 200 of these codes for potential system malfunctions, yours sounds like a O2 problem.

Intermittant check engine light


The only way to find out what the problem is is by doing a scan of the car computer module using an OBD code reader.
The codes returned will tell you the cause of the problem.
