When your engine is cool check your oil dipstick and make sure your oil level is good. If the oil level is low add some till it is good. If that helps and the light comes on at a later date and you have to add more oil have you car looked at.

I have a 01dodge RAM 1500 and the oil gauge keeps going from 40 to 0 and the check gauges light keeps coming on but I checked the oil and it's fine, what could be the reason for this


1. You need to have an independent oil pressure gauge hooked up to the engine to check the oil pressures at various RPMs and to verify the 40 to zero drop. This will eliminate any issue with the pressure gauge or the sending unit.

2. The oil pressure variation can be caused by an intermittent blockage in the oil pick up or an intermittent sticking oil pressure relief valve. I would possibly suspect the latter if you are getting good pressure and it is intermittently dropping to zero and going back up again..
If you or previous owners have not maintained the engine with frequent oil changes you will get a sludge build up problem in the engine and this will be evident by just dropping the engine sump.

3. If you have had a check engine light warning then you need to have the vehicle scanned to see what fault codes have been generated by the computer. There will be some related to the intermittent loss of oil pressure but there may be others also..

4. You need to have the oil pressure problem checked out immediately. Running the engine when you constantly lose oil pressure intermittently will definitely cause engine damage due to a loss of both lubrication and oil cooling to critical components.

1 beep every five minutes, i have no oil ***** light on ever.


Is it the oil warning? Beeps can come from a number of areas. My door closed warning would beep when I braked. Seat belt intermittent, even your speed warning setting beeping once when over setting got me once. I didn't even know I had set it.

If the oil light comes on before starting, (as do all warning lights) and doesn't show up on the beep, it probably is not the source of the beep.

Cheers

Check oil level warning comes on. Oil level is OK. This warning is intermittent.



first thing is check the oil pressure not by the instrument panel if ok then panel is out if not its the sensor or oil pump Try this replace the temperature sender with the new green model and oil light will disappear no more three annoying beeps.

Red oil light comes on intermittantly as does the


Assuming these readings are false, I have asimilar problem in my 540 which tells me allt the exterior bulbs are not working. The bulb sensor is faulty so I think you are safe in your assumption although the oil light showing would scare me, false or not. I suggest you get a service agent to cast his/her eyes over that one.

Engine Transmission Light coming on intermittently


low pressure in the tranny, did you check the oil level in park? if so you might have to check it in gear with someone holding it on the brakes, then re-check... hopefully it isn;t the pressure solenoid.... $$$$$$.... they can be expensive, cheers!
