Could be a fuel injector drizzling fuel instead of spraying a finely atomized mist.A fine mist will burn thoroughly,while a drizzle of fuel will not,and whatever fuel is left will go on down past the rings to a certain extent.Also have the vehicle scanned for diagnostic trouble codes,and address any codes.Change the oil and filter before any damage is done.

Fuel pump. I just pulled apart the dead fuel pump from my Astro today. Looking at the motor, it would have to land on one position only in order for it to have restarted as the brushes contacts on 3 of the 8 windings had worn down. Likely you could get the engine to fire if you used starting fluid, but it wouldn't stay running.
Could be a long list of things, including low fuel pressure, throttle position sensor, EGR valve, dirty air filter, and so on. Is the check engine light on ? Does it feel like it is lacking fuel, or air ? Is it not downshifting when it should ?
Fuel in Cylinder Is CAUSED Most Likley BY THE MISSFIRE Check Spark at that Cyl. & Correct that. ALSO Fuel in oil Breaks Down Viscosity of the OIL so I Would Eliminate the Fuel in OIL Problem First to Determine if No Oil Pressure in top end
sounds like you have an injector that is staying open all the time,and dumping fuel all the time and not only when its time.It is most likely the one where the plug keeps fouling.The engine light is probally showing a misfire on that cylinder also,please take it to a qualified tech to have scanned and checked
Your Dodge sounds as if it actually has several separate problems going on,first,with the check engine light,have it scanned for diagnostic trouble codes,and have the technician write down the code number and definition (description).This could lead down a diagnostic path that might explain some of the things going on with the truck.The oil gauge,take it back to the oil change place,and INSIST that you think they installed a defective oil filter.I had a defective oil filter cause my oil gauge to go whacky too.Hopefully the codes will lead to some clear problem,when you get the code numbers and definitions,come on back and we'll try and work through them with you.Another option is buying an OBD2 code reader.They can be bought for around $60,and you won't have to go a mechanic or AutoZone to get codes out of your vehicles.Good luck.Thanks for using Fixya.com
