The problem is for a Dodge Ram 1500 3.9L V6 . My oil pressure gauge went from just above 40 to 0 then back again. It did this several times. When I started to drive back home the oil gauge stayed at 0. The...


The first thing to do is put a mechanical oil pressure gauge onto the engine and verify that your oil pressure is actually dropping to 0 psi. If it is, pull the oil pan and check the oil pump pick-up screen for sludge (plugged). This is common in engines that have not been well maintained, If it is plugged, you'll need a new oil pump and pick-up screen (you may want to try this, then go after the overheating problem). Also check for ant particles of metal in the oil pan, if you see any chunks, you've probably spun a bearing and need a new engine. Also wiggle all the rods and check for excessive play (again, a spun bearing). Also, if the truck is a pre 2001 model, it's possible that the intake manifold pan gasket has blown out and the engine is sucking oil through the intake, allowing the engine to run low on oil. As far as the over-heating, it may be a separate problem, unless oil starvation has caused a hot spot and cracked the block or head(s). But it may just be a coincidence that both problems started at the same time. So basically, if you've lost oil pressure, you'll have to tear the engine down to the bare block to find all damage, but it will probably be cheaper to put a used or reman long block in

If the valve lifters are quiet you most likely have oil pressure even with gauge showing "0".Sounds like the oil pressure switch going bad.I would try that first.

I would stop driving it right away and test the oil pressure with a gauge. If at an idle when its cool you don't hit 30-40 psi....change the oil pump. The knocking is probably your main bearings. While your installing a new oil pump, put new mains in.

Intermittent oil pressure loss at highway speeds


sending unit may be bad. If engine is not knocking or tapping when pressure reads 0 likely that's the case.

Come to stop 99 Ram oil pressure drops to 0 check gauges light.


Change the oil! The 318Cu in V8 (5.2 liter) engine has a problem with sludge build up on the oil pump pickup tube screen. This engine requires oil changes at or before 3500 miles with a high detergent oil.
