Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you... Are you sure it has no oil psi?
Have you tested it with a manual guage, and is engine making noises?
No! the car is saying it has no pressure
Its making a slight tick sound.
Ok, It sounds like the Oil pump has failed and you will need to drop oil pan and replace
I wouldnt drive it, running an engine without oil pressure will ruin an entire engine
is that hard to do
You will need to lift up vehicle and remove pan, its not that difficult.. But I dont know your mechanical skills
ok, i can do that
is the pump east to take out?
Ok, when you get oil pump, make sure to get oil pan gasket, oil and filter also.... Inspect for metal in pan....If you see exessive metal...The bearings are bad also
You will also need to remove the front timing cover...
I will get you instructions.,,,,Just a sec'
I just changed the oil filter and new oil about 30 min ago
I would tear it down first to see if you see exessive metal, if you do..you are going to have to rebuild or replace
You did say the engine is tapping loud didnt you?
no, slight tick
Has the tick always been there?
Im asking because there is a flash(update) that fixes the oil light
Does the engine sound normal to you?
Ok, look at this..
engine sounds normal
Just download it....I think this will correct your issues... You had me worried when you said you engine is ticking...
ok bro, thanks
Take it to your nearest Dodge dealer and tell them you need your PCM updated for the Oil light... It usually costs 1 hr labor...which is anywhere from65-95.00 per hr
You should be good to go then....
Have I answered all of your questions?
And its fine to drive until you get a chance to go also
yes you did. What do you mean its fine to drive
You will not cause any damage to anything until you can get this updated... The oil light is a electrical error, and if your engine sounds like it always has, it has got oil pressure..So dont worry
And make sure you use the oil type that is on oil cap
Good to know , thanks for your help
ok will do
