Question about Dodge Pickup
Did you check the engine oil level? A fluctuation in oil pressure is most often caused by low oil levels in the engine. First, make sure the oil is filled to the correct level on the dipstick. I shouldn't have to say this but just to make sure I'm clear about this...please remove the dipstick and wipe it clean before re-inserting it into the engine to check the oil. If oil level is already correct, then it is safe to assume your problem is electrical and you should then inspect the connection at the oil pressure switch. It's usually mounted on one of the cylinder heads. You will need a repair manual from any auto parts store to go any further on this because troubleshooting an electrical problem requires specific info on where to find certain components and how to physically test them. I simply can't list every possible cause of the problem in this post. Just remember, the problem is either mechanical, meaning you are low on oil, or the problem is electrical, meaining the gage is wrong. If the gage is wrong you need to be able to determine why. That means you will have to determine which components make the gage operate. Locate each of them and inspect for loose, damaged, or corroded wires or connectors. Then test each component. Testing will require specific info so you will need a manual in that case. Try checking the oil first, then, if need be, get a good repair manual and go from there.
