Oil pressure fluctuates.

5

Asked by Jan 27, 2015 at 08:35 PM about the 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When the truck is cold the oil pressure is fine and when it warms up it drops because
thats normal with the viscosity levels but it drops like half way between the middle and
Low, and when I accelerate it comes back up to the middle and a little over. Also I got the
oil changed and it was good for a while and then it started doing it again. Any tips?

Drop your oil pan and check the pick up line for the oil pump. a lot of times it will get clogged with carbon, sludge, and pieces of paper from old oil filters. if that's the problem then just clean it out and make sure to clean your oil pan to.
