If you change oil every 2,500 miles , maybe is a oil pump failure, if not , then remove engine oil pan and clean oil pump strainer, use good quality oil

Check engine light is on. Engine sounds like it's knocking. And oil light is coming on. This 2008 Dodge Dakota has only 63,000 miles.


Sometimes that light means overfill oil
Sometimes after changing oil if they put too much that happens
Check the oil level on cold in level place (give it like an hour or so) for the light to reset
If after that the light still on take it to a tech.

Good luck

well so if i understand right you have no oil in the vehicle? or have you checked the oiil dipstick, GM is known to burn oil so if you go alot more than three thousand miles between oil changes than that will cause the oil to burn off and cause the lights to come on, or you might have a leaky filter or drain plug and its loosing oil, so first pull he diptick check level and if you need oil just go get an oil change and they snould let you know of any leaks there may be

No if the oil light has flickered you have oil pressure loss some time just belive the sensor do help us out. lifter do not cause oil pressure loss pressure is built in the rotation of the crankshaft. The knock under the plenum will point you to that cylinder that is affected, (main bearing) as for a 1995 the injectors can only cause a misfire but no knocking noise,will they honor the warranty

Oil light comes on at certain times


First, check the oil level on the dipstick. If it is low, add the required amount of approved motor oil. If the level is correct and the light still comes on, there may be other issues.

Oil light on 99' Jetta TDI


Hi,
The "oil light" is actually a "low oil pressure" light, and not a "low oil level" light. I would get it checked out at a garage asap.
Did they change the filter at the same time? D
