Short to ground from the signal wire. resistance to ground makes the needle move. if grounded or shorted to high(+) could cause irregular reading. if your gauge is mechanical you could have an oil filter thats bypassing into the oil cooler and not completely being filtered. good luck...

93 dodge cummins diesel oil pressure gauge low. but no.knocking light not on


Find and look at the sensor. If there is a lot of oil around it, replace the sender unit. Pressure blows right threw the unit into the plug. This can and will throw a low reading. I check the pressure with an external gauge to make sure. 90% of the time it is just a bad sending unit.

Why do i not have any oil pressure at a idle on a 2004.5 5.9 cummins?


If you have LOST Oil Pressure (Verified by the Gauge), then you could either have a clogged Oil Passages and no oil to move or worn Bearings or a Bad Oil Pump. DODGE has a HUGE ISSUE with SLUDGE. Adding a FLUSH (I actually use Diesel Fuel) in the Oil (2 quarts of Diesel for every 6 quarts of Oil) (this has worked for me for years and taught to me by a NASCAR OFFICIAL. Do not DRIVE the vehicle, but let it Idle for 20 Minutes while Monitoring Temperature. If the Oil Pressure is Truly ZERO, then Raise the RPM to get Oil Pressure UP to prevent any damage (lowest RPM to get Oil Pressure). After doing this for 20-30 minutes, Drain the Oil and change the Oil and Filter. Use a HIGHER OIL (20W-50) and see what happens. If the Oil Pressure goes up, then you probably have a clearance issue with your Main / Rod Bearings... If the Pressure goes down to Zero after it raises to Temp, then you need to change the Pump and Bearings.... Good Luck

2001 dodge 2500 diesel oil leak in front of power


The power steering pump is piggie backed to the vacuum pump. The seal in the back of the vacuum pump has engin oil under presure behind it cousing a leak that gets worse over time. Cummins make a seal kit to fix this leak.
