I just bought a 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 an it studers when go to accelerate also I have to manually shift through the gears to pick up an go but still don't go that fast only on the hi way


Has a tune up been done recently? If not may want to replace the plugs , wires,cap and ignition rotor. Also, find out if the previous owner had ever changed the fuel pump. The fuel filter is located on the the fuel pump assembly and can become clogged to create a lean fuel condition and make the engine sluggish.

Where is the oil pump on a 1996 dodge 1500 pick up


The oil pump is located inside the oil pan, it is bolted to the center main bearing cap of the crankshaft. To replace it you must raise the engine off the mounts and then remove the oil pan.

1996 Dodge Ram 1500 5.9L with 93K. Oil dummy


I had the same problem and ended up changing the oil pump and it did not fix it. (Peace of mind anyway and it was cheap) I replaced the pressure sensor (that happens to be tucked in deep between the back of the engine and firewall) and the pressure gauge worked just fine after that.

1996 DODGE RAM 1500 LOSES OIL PRESSURE AFTER WARMED UP FINE WHEN FIRST STARTED WHY?


There are several reasons. The oil viscosity can make a difference and if the oil is contaminated with fuel. Wear in the oil pump and all of your bearings starting with the main crankshaft bearings and the connecting rod bearings. The wrong or bad oil filter.
When cold oil flows it plugs leaking bearings and oil gears. When the oil warms, the wear in the bearings (gaps) can't hold back the thin oil and the pressure drops. If the bearings are replaced before the crank and cam are damaged, the pressure will be maintained.

I have a 1996 dodge ram 2500, 5.2L, the oil light comes on and the oil gauge fluxuates, but there is plenty of oil in it. There in no apparent issues with the oil pump (no grinding/squeeling) I am...


Just to add, hope this helps with sensor location. The spec I saw was 30--80 psi oil pressure at 3000 rpms. In the old days they used to say for generic spec, 10 psi for every 1000 rpms. Always use the proper spec. You might be able to use analog pressure gage to screw in to replace sending unit to double check oil pressure. Just my opinion.

I need the location of the oil pump on a 1998 dodge ram


Remove the oil pan, it is mounted at the rear of the engine with a tube and screen attached. Be sure to prime the new pump before installing it.
