Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Have you used a manual oil pressure gauge to check the oil pressure?
Ok, what does the oil pressure say on the dash when the light comes on?
Are you using the exact oil that they say?
Dodge has had issues with the oil.
Did you use an oem pressure sensor?
I agree that it is probably the oil.
The service manual says 10w-30 and I suspect that they are using 5w-30. Usually not a big deal, but for some reason these engines are very sensitive.
If I remember correctly they might have a bulletin for a reflash to recalibrate the ecm to help correct this.
I agree. Did they do any other work to the engine?
Have they had the oil pan off?
When they removed the oil pan they might have forgotten the seal that goes to the oil pickup tube. If this is the case it would cause this issue also.
No, I doubt it is an instrument cluster issue. I saw a similar issue before and it was the pcm. Those vehicles run very low oil pressure when they are at temperature and idling, down to the single digits.
I would make sure the pcm is up to date, some of the updates are piggybacked with others.
