Why does My Jeep run for about 200 yards then shuts down , after about 10 min. it will start and do the same .on the inst.panel it reads hot oil

You need to scan the engine control unit for fault codes, it will have some I am sure. Check The codes by turning the ignition key to run and then off, then to run and then off, then to run and wait for the codes to be displayed in the digital mileage display.

1998 dodge dakota overheated was ran hot lost all power an shutdown

When an engine gets hot, you must shut it off before it gets so hot that it begins to lose power. Sometimes this simply can't be done safely. Once the engine gets so hot that it shuts down, permanent damage may have be done. Bearing can gall, piston rings can break, piston crowns melt, but usually the oil breaks down and the main damage is to bearings and perhaps the crankshaft. Diagnostics would include changing the oil, attaching a good mechanical oil pressure gauge then spin the engine with the spark plugs removed to see how bad the damage is. If oil pressure is adequate, run a compression test. This should give you enough information to decide if the engine can be saved without a major overhaul. Low compression can mean blown head gaskets, warpped heads, broken piston rings, warpped valves, etc.

Where is the oil pump situated on a CateraS 2001.Have low oil pressure when idling or at a red light.

Hi Rejean, I suggest you have the oil pressure sender unit inspected before thinking of replacing the oil pump. If it's the sender unit the job will be a fraction of the cost of an oil pump replacement, which means opening the engine. Regards John

Oil light comes on.

thats normal , key on, not started or stalled
but when does it?
if cold engine (bad to bone) (ever check oil levels at fuel fill up?)
if hot engine, bad.
the oil lamp can come on only with super bad low oil pressure.
3-5 PSI is the common oil sender rating.
running 0w oil? in this old car never designed for such oil?
is engine overheating?
is engine rpm at 300 rpm (BAD) ? 800 minimum. is correct.

dont drive it. or risk, spun rod bearings and sized cam shaft.

answer back and we can progress to more , tests.

Hope this was some help.

My 03 745li puts out light blue smoke sometimes when engine gets hot driving around town... why is that?

blue or blue/gray smoke is a sign that engine is burning engine oil. keep an eye on oil level and if engine is getting hot or over-heated this will not help your situation.

Headlight left on warning not working, what should I look at?

Headlight on warning works through the radio and the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM has an input from the lighting circuit and when it decides that the warning should turn on, it sends a class 2 serial data communications to the radio. The radio then sends a cime tone to the driver's front door speaker.

If by chance, you replaced the OEM radio with and aftermarket radio and did not install an interface module, you will be missing not only the headlight warning but many other warnings as well ( low oil / hot engine, etc.)

1998 dodge stratus oil lamp

Check the engine oil level in your engine. If you also get the oil light coming on when making a hard corner along with when you brake sometime, it might be that the oil is just a bit lower than it should be and the movement (sloshing) of the oil in the oil pan might cause the oil pickup in the engine to be starved for oil for a few seconds.
