Question about 1995 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

I own a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 4 x4. It has 201,000 miles on it. When I am in a hurry and run it pretty hard to get somewhere, the red oil light comes on and, maybe it's my imagination, but I seem to smell oil burning. The oil light goes off after the truck has been cut off for awhile. This might help. I recently got the oil changed at Wal-Mart. They commented on their billing sheet that there was an oil leak before the truck was brought in for an oil change. I didn't think much of it because I figured it was normal for a truck with 200,000 miles to burn a little oil. The oil light had never come on before I got the oil changed. I would appreciate any help. Thanks Brian

Sounds like they failed to remove the old oil seal on the filter shaft check to see if you suddenly have 2 seals this could gause the problem.

I have a 1994 dodge ram 1500 318 engine that suddenly started running rough as of yesterday and check engine light comes on?


I would start with the throd body and Mass Air Flow system for build up, do not listen to anyone who tells you that low grade gasoline is ok for you to use, your engine will not perform well on it and will cause a sticky residue on the throd body and MAF sensor. Also it is critical that you keep your truck with a clean air filter and service with oil changes and spark plugs as needed, follow dodge reccomendations, I learned the hard way 1994 Dodge Ram PU 1500 Quad and 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 PU both were the same way, they both had trouble with AC and Radiators as well.

hope this helps

2005 dodge ram 5,7 hard starting when its hot 58000 miles on it


If you can find a buddy who owns a scan tool (a "code reader" won't give enough information) look at the data stream and note the coolant temperature with the engine stone cold. It should be close to the ambient temperature. Next, drive the vehicle until it's up to operating temperature and, again, take note of the coolant temperature. It should be somewhere around 210 degrees F. If it's not, the coolant temperature sensor is probably bad. If you can't get access to a scan tool, just replace the coolant temperature sensor. They're pretty cheap. You'll probably find it somewhere around the thermostat housing.

Well Check your oil preshure with a proper gauge!

You will need to have it scanned to find what is triggering the light. It will be stored in memory codes. I don't normally recommend it, but auto zone will scan it for free.

Slide a large piece of cardboard under the truck after driving for ten minutes note in which area directly above the spot on the cardboard the oil is coming from then get under the vehicle with a drop light to look for the origin of the leak, if no leak is detected then it may be the engine is burning oil this could either be valve stem seals or broke or worn oil rings.
