Question about 2000 Dodge Intrepid
That's got nothing to do w the O2 sensor. The float on the gas tank is a good start w the gauge issue .

HI, the fuel gauge sending unit is malfunctioning. this is located inside the fuel tank and, it is part of the fuel pump assembly. replacing this failing component will fix this issue.

could be a problem with a pcm. a lot of durangos have a problem with the pcm board getting hot and cold too many times and getting a crack the size of a hair. mine did and it sent a po 505 idle air control system fault code. i diagnosed iac valve and that wasnt it then went to pem( the main computer) replaced it and has been fine ever since. but if not computer take it to a auto technician who has tools and knowledge so your not misdiagnosing things and spending lots of unnecassary money :)

Sounds like a bad sending unit. It clips to the fuel pump in the tank. It's not hard to remove and pretty self explanatory if you look at it, but if you don't have any experience with fuel line quick disconnects, I wouldn' try it at home. If you do try it, remember 2 things: Run that thing as low on gas a you can first and when it comes to disconnecting the fuel lines, push, squeeze (until it clicks), then pull apart. The tank is held in by 2 or 4 13 or 15mm bolts and a few hoses and lines. Mark the position of the pump before you pull it out.

One of 3 things can cause this behavior of the oil pressure light going on and off: (1) oil level might be a little low... double check and make sure your oil is porperly topped off; (2) sensor is defective... which might require replacement; (3) oil pump problem... this can be an obstruction of some kind of the oil pump. If there is a strainer, which is typical, there might be sludge or something else obstructing the entry to the oil pump, thus, resulting in lower pressure output. It is rare, not impossible, for the oil pump itself to be defective... but again, very rare. If the issue is at the oil pump, it willmost commonly be an obstruction. Try having the engine flushed professionally. There are auto service centers with this capability. It is probably the most affordable first step to take. If after a flush the problem persists, then have the sensor checked.

I suspect the problem you have is related to a defective fuel level sensor inside the fuel tank, but to confirm the check engine light and the gauge are related you will need the OBD2 electronic engine control system tested for fault codes, anytime the check engine light is turned on a fault code is set in the powertrain control modules memory. You can get the fault code test run for free at any Autozone, Kragen or Aamco Transmission shop. Let me know what the fault code is that shows up.
