Asked by Aug 05, 2015 at 05:44 PM about the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 05 ram 5.7 hemi v8 and my oil
pressure will be fine while the engine in cool
but after a while it will start to quickly go
down and then back up. After a while of that
then it drops and doesn't come back up. If it
goes down and doesn't come back up I
have to stop turn off the truck and turn it
back on and its fine untill I start to
accelerate then it drops again. What do y'all
thinks going on with it?

When was last time you had an oil change ? Next time you change oil leave out one quart and add some Lucas Engine Oil stabilizer to the oil or if just recently had done remove one quart then add the Lucas. You will notice the difference.
