Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

1 Answer

I have a 2006 dodge durango 5.7 hemi, i had my oil changed and headed out of town the next day, truck started raddling and knocking, the oil light came on and we pulled over, thinking we didnt have oil to begin, when we checked out the dip stick it was around and 1 and 1/2 over filled. Can to much oil do damage to a motor?

Too much oil can do more damage than too little in some senarios, the oil actually increases the drag on internal engine parts, especially the crankshaft, when over filled and at higher RPM's. Drain it out till level is at the low side of dipstick marks and run vehicle. Definely bring this to the attention of persons who serviced your vehicle. Hopefully you caught it in time. My family members have lost 3 motors to this kind of incompetent service over the years!

2006 Dodge Durango Oil light comes on


It might be faulty oil pressure sensor or bad oil pump, but might be adressed to recent oil change. Sometimes oil get viscouse in winter and cause oil light to come on. For winter the recommended one is 5W-30
Oil light should come on for less then a second during starting the car. If it comes longer or when you push the brake it might be the sign of bad oil (sometimes), faulty oil pressure sensor (mosty), bad oil pump (often) or internal engine problem (very rare).
Good Luck
