Question about 1983 Dodge Pickup
My oil pressure gauge reads 75% when there is no oil pressure sensor hooked up. help
If you feel a difference in the vehicles performance it's probably not the sensor. Change the oil, and filter. Check the oil for metal flakes, shiny specs floating in the oil. Fill it back up one quart short. Add a quart of transmission fluid. Tranny fluid is a detergent, it will help clean any blockages and build up. Drive it for a week. Then change the oil again. If that doesn't fix it, you might have to drop the oil pan and clean that out. There should be a magnet in the pan. This collects metal that will harm your engine. Make you you clean it and put it back. Check the oil pickup, remove it and clean it out. Once you drop the pan, you will have access to the oil pump and it's sensor. Check them out to.

SOURCE: location of oxygen sensor
There is only 4 sensors on a 2000 dodge intrepid and the bank 2 sensor 2 is the sensor located on the right (passenger) side and the one located after the catalytic converter (the one close to the firewall).

The oil pump either works or it doesn't, so it's not the problem. Check the wire connection at the pressure sending unit. The wire may be broken at the connector, or you may need to replace the sending unit.

Check the wires to the senders for grounding Those gauges have a power lead to gauge then to sender. The more the sending unit "grounds" the higher the gauge reading
