Anytime and engine dies, or is off, while the ignition key is still in the "run" position then the oil warning light should come on since there isn't any actual oil pressure in an engine that isn't running...so I dont think you have any problems related to that. What you'll need to know to diagnose this problem is if after the engine stalls if it is capable of making spark for the plugs when being cranked over. If it won't produce any spark while cranking then I would suspect the Hall Effect pick-up unit located inside/under the distributor cap as they are somewhat prone to failure and often will quit working when warm but will start working again after they have cooled off a bit. If you have spark when trying to restart the engine then its possible you have a fuel related problem such as a weak or failing fuel pump. Good luck, hope this helps a bit!

I have a 2004 dodge stratus 2.7 flex fuel engine that just killed on me, it had smoke coming from right hand side under hood. wasnt running hot but put coolant in anyway, first it would try to roll ov


When you say right hand, is that driver or passsenger side? Some people use sides from front and some from behind the wheel. Do you see any oil leakage on the engine from around the seal? Was it making any noise before it died?

I have a dodge caravan 1998 3Lv6 every time the van warms up the oil light comes on. Now when I go a speed of 60 the light comes on and stays on until i give it gas. Would this be the oil sensor? And if so...


The oil pressure switch is located on the engine block, just above and towards the drivers side of the oil filter. You should take this to a shop and have them check the oil pressure just to be safe.

My oil light comes on when the care is at idle after it warms up.


The oil light is coming on when it warms up because the oil is thin and lack of oil pressure. This is very dangerous. I would make sure that the engine is full of oil. Then get the oil pump replaced as soon as possible if the oil is full. If you don't get it replaced it will spin the bearings and you will have to either rebuild the engine or buy a new one.

Driving down the road my truck stalls and the oil


First you must find the engine oil pressure sensor, remove the sensor and repalce it with a gauge. Run the engine until hot and record the reading if the reading is between12 and 25 PSI replace the sensor, if the pressure continually drops as the engine warms up then you have a major issue, meaning there is serious engine wear and a rebuild is nesassary.

1992 Dodge 250 van, 318, Automatic - Dies when coming to a stop


I cannot see how adding a fuel additive would help to be honest. I would be looking for a split or leaking vacuum line, I have even seen a leaking evap canister before that caused a similar problem. Does the engine pull clean and strong when it is warm or at cruising speeds? Does it feel like its running lean or misfiring?

Oil relatied engine problem...maybe? need help


The clicking sound is from lack of oil or lack of oil pressure. When the lifters pump out then they have too much slack in them and thus the clicking or tapping sound. Sorry to say this, but the engine is either very tired or the oil pump has about had it.

Ram van dies


sounds to me like the fuel pump is bad, when it warms up it dies, try to check this by filling the tank and running a while, then run the van with a near empty tank and see how it does. A full tank of gas should keep the fuel pump cool as it is surrounded by the liquid. I had a similar problem. when my tank got to about a quarter full (3/4 empty) the van would shut off after a short distance, then after sitting for a while would start up again get me a little farther then shut off again. i ended up changiung the fuel pump cost me almost $300. if this simple test shows no results the you got electrical problems, check distributor, and surrounding cables. good luck. also check your fuses could be dirty!
