I have an 04 dodge ram quad cab 1500 4 wheel drive and when it has sat for a couple hours when you start it the oil pressure gauge doesn't move causing the check gauges light to come on.

Asked by Oct 24, 2014 at 07:03 PM about the 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab SB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I turn the truck off and restart it and the
gauge works fine. Any ideas?

Could be bad oil sending unit,or your oil is getting thin or low if this is not issue may be bad oil pump.

Oil shouldn't be thin and isn't low. Just changed oil a couple weeks ago. I will check the sending unit first. Thanks
