1996 Dodge Ram Sport

Asked by Apr 05, 2017 at 04:46 PM about the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr LT 4WD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Oil Pressure Dropping to 0. Rusty grit in oil and oil thin.  Oil hanged 3 times
and still thin and rusty.  What could be going on?

1 Answer

260

My guess based on what your stating...... get ready to replace the engine. No oil pressure, grittiness in oil. You have a bearing galling out somewhere. The clearance has become so extreme between the surfaces that there is a loss of oil pressure.
