Question about 1999 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

Hello I have a Dodge Charger Engine : 5.7L V8 HEMI Year : 2007. During the audit of my engine I had the code "P0524" Engine oil pressure too low mechanical failure. Yet there two days I change my oil filter and also emptying my engine. The mechanic told me that the problem could come from my oil pump. But I wonder if the problem is my oil pump before I get into the repairs to be sure. Can you also tell me if I can use my car or not? Because I do not want to further aggravate the problem of my engine. Thank you for the help you could give me. Here is my email address for responses and information you could give me: teitim@hotmail.com

The only thing that would generate that code is a faulty oil pump, no doubt about that. That's a major fault, if your engine has run with it then it should be completely dismantled and checked for damage.
Under no circumstance the engine to this car should be started again until you fix it, running it without proper lubrication will simply make it seize, destroying it. If you are unlucky to drive the car when the engine decides to seize then the transmission and the wheel will just lock, flipping the car and killing you.
Tow the car to a repair shop and fix it immediately.

Why does my dodge charge engine shut down and oil light came on.


The oil light comes on when the car shuts off because there is no oil pressure. Make sure it has oil in it. If so take the car and get the codes pulled off the obd computer.

How hard is it to swap a 2.7L engine to a 3.5L engine in a 2007 Dodge Charger


I'm not sure but the charger never came with a 2.7L engine, if you mean the 5.7 HEMI it can be done, everything is available, but it will cost some serious coin and time search out the bits and pieces to put it together, but everything you need can be found at swap meets, local wrecking yards and of course, mopar dealers

My 2007 Dodge ram 1500 with hemi has 2 codes po524 and po406 are they related


In both cases, there is a software update available for this condition. It involves having the dealer connector their StarScan tool to your truck and reprogramming the PCM.

DTC P0406 - EGR Sensor "A" circuit "High"
There is updated software available for your PCM that will correct this code if your vehicle was built prior to mid February 07. If it was built after that, then the EGR valve will need replacing (this is not unusual). Keep in mind that could be time for a new valve, but you dont will need to change the tube, but new gaskets are a good idea.

DTC P0524 - Oil Pressure Too Low Oil pressure sending unit (sensor) voltage input above the maximum acceptaple voltage.
If the software is up to date, then have the oil pressure sensing unit must be replaced.

Additionally, check this TSB SUPERSEDES TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 18-044-07, DATED OCTOBER 12, 2007, WHICH SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM YOUR FILES. ALL

PO524 WHAT DOES IT MEAN


Hi John,
Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0524 has a generic description of "Oil Pressure Too Low."
There are SEVERAL things to consider here:
First: Your engine is VERY sensitive to oil viscosity. Since it came up right after an oil change, I would question whether the correct viscosity oil was used. Also, if there has been any aftermarket fluids/chemicals added to the engine oil (like those that make claims to clean your crank case) this can have an adverse affect on oil viscosity.
Second, The actual oil pressure should be checked with a manual gauge to verify proper oil pressure sending unit operation and to see if a low oil pressure condition actually exists.
Finally, If everything is OK in the items listed above, there is a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) published for your truck that has to do with "false" code P0542. It requires an update of your computer software to correct it. The TSB Number is 18-003-08.
If your truck requires the software update, it can be done at the dealership for free if your vehicle is still covered under the 8-year/80,000 mile emissions warranty. (It should be covered unless you have more than 80,000 miles)

Computer is showing a PO524 code.


I know in the 2008 models there was a problem to where you had to have a update done through a scanner (called a reflash I think). P0524 means low oil pressure. Pretty sure this TSB was for Rams from like 2002 - 2008 but don't quote me on that.
