Everything was fine until yesterday when it started all over again. When I started the engine the factory gauge and the manual gauge read perfect. I stopped at an auto parts and changed the oil right there in the parking lot. But after I put the oil in and it warmed up. For mine, it only acted up when it was very cold out like when air temp was around 0 F.
I started it up today and hears a tapping, shut it down right away and checked the oil and it was low. Obey1 answered 2 years ago I have a 95 Dodge Ram 1500 has high mileage I know that's a factor but there is so much oil buildup around the gaskets and spark plugs I'm thinking that's where my main leak is. Was in the middle of no where when the check gauge light came at a stop light. Returned it back to the mechanic and they replaced the sensor to gauge. The problem the whole time was oil pressure sensor and the dirty sensor connection. You have a few options. I only recommend this if you have a healthy engine and have a more advanced knowledge of engines.
Ive run wix filters in my trucks before and ive had no problems but lately I use the mopar ones. Will definitely let you know if it fixes the problem. Remove the two screws that secure the inside hood latch release handle to the instrument panel lower reinforcement and lower the release handle to the floor. Clean oil and 133,400 miles. My oil pressure every now and then drops to zero sending off the warning ding when I put on my brakes to stop then it just goes right back up immediately as soon as i come to a complete stop.
If you have this problem you could also pick up a T fitting from the hardware store and run both factory and after market oil psi gauges. Is it possible it's a bad gauge, or something related to the head gasket job?? Disconnect the instrument panel wire harness connector from the park brake switch on the park brake mechanism. Steviestev answered 2 months ago My problems a little different. It threaded right into the same hole by the way. We noticed every time it would beep the oil pressure gauge would immediately drop to zero and it would go back to normal a few seconds later then it beeps again and drops to zero once more.
P0522 Dodge Description The engine oil pump features seven vanes and a moving element that continuously adjusts to maintain a regulated oil pressure supply by varying the displacement of the pump. I wonder if the thread coating on the dealership part was preventing it from grounding properly. So if my symptoms sound like yours then id check the intake line first cuz this is an inherant problem with these Dodges come to find out. He also showed me the oil pump and th hole for picking up oil is way to small for this size engine. Here is a link to your The power steering pressure switch is installed in the power steering high-pressure hose Fig. All the dash lights came on say no oil pressure. I also saw a couple Hemi's and 4.
I also just had the oil and filters done. I'm curious about getting an aftermarket gauge but have no idea how to install one and don't like paying a garage to do work. Drain the engine cooling system. The factory gauge will read normal and no chime sounds. Install plugs in, or tape over the opened heater core tubes.
I had a cracked head they said with metal in my oil. I always thought it was a sludge thing clogging the pick up tube. I wrapped it with tape and after resetting engine light again, no more problem. I put in a quart of Castro sludge like cleaner oil. No oil leaks on mine but there is some rust on the threads and the block. Thread in until there are only 2-3 threads left just see how far in the old one was, that's what I did.
Tired of dropping money into this truck Steve answered 3 years ago I have a 95 dodge ram 1500 5. I was about to change out the oil pressure sensor due to the same issue stated above Oil Gauge reading 0 after engine is hot but after removing the old sensor I installed an old school psi gauge. Roll down the instrument panel and install a temporary hook in the center hole on top of the instrument panel. Now it actually shows more pressure then the old unit! But, if that doesn't solve the problem you may want to seek a competent local mechanic to run a smoke test looking for leaks in the evap system. It's due for one now.
Remove the five screws that secure the top of the instrument panel to the top of the dash panel, removing the center screw last. I talked to several mechanics and read all the forums. If you turned the engine off and restarted it the gauge would come up an work perfectly with the exception of every now and then when you would stopped it would drop to 0 but when you gave it gas the pressure would go back up. I ordered all the parts but decided to add a manual oil pressure gauge first to see what my oil pressure actually was before I tore into the oil pan. The pressure gauge would drop to zero at idle and come back we I hit the gas. As you look up you will see what looks like a pump.
