Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
My check engine light is on when i took it to the shop they said i needed a tune up i got the tune up and the check engine light is still on and the oil gauge tends to go high then normal i just got an oil change and it still does it also when i am on the freeway when i push the gas pedal down i am not getting a lot of power but the engine is reving very high
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
