    i talked to some guys and they said that it may be because some of the spark plugs may be bad...could this be a possibility?

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

Flashing is usually a misfire. This could be a bad plug, plug wire, or injector. Maybe time for a tune up on that .

All late model vehicles have built in Rev Limiters to prevent catastrophic destruction from no load over speed of the engine. Check with your dealer Service Manager to find out what RPM your engine is governed to.

Check engine light on and off


have a tune up done on your vehicle. it will need plugs wires. also you may want to take your vehicle up to a auto parts store and have them connect there diagnostic machine to it and see if it pulls any codes.

Check engine light


check transmission sensors, O2 sensors may need cleaning or replaced, also make sure your temp is not going up when you step on the gas? If so its the trans.
