Customer Question

idk my son drives it!
JA: What is the model/year of your Dodge?
Customer: 1999 5.2L V8
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It seems to be burning oil....according to him. He also says that the Oil Pressure guage is not working. I haven't checked it out because he's never home.
JA: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?
Customer: Original....i think, unless there has been a recall on it. Yes the light has come on. Also does start right away. Need to crank it twice every time. or hold it for a long time
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: those are the only things I know of.

So your issues are that the oil light comes on and it's burning oil? Is the check engine light on? I have a test that I will need for you to be at the vehicle to perform.. When can you get him to bring you the truck? Also is the check engine light on and if yes what codes are setting?
