Having problems with your 2007 Dodge Ram Truck ?
I added lucas oil stabilizer and my oil pressure gage is now completly on the high mark is that ok
I wouldn't recommend running your truck for very long in this condition. I wouldn't worry as much about blowing seals as much as running such a high viscosity lubricator through your engine. When the oil is so viscous, it wont reach and coat all the moving parts as well as an oil which is thinner and spreads throughout your engine more readily. You may especially want to address this sooner if you operate this truck in a colder environment.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited that is making a rattling/ticking noise under the hood and I cannot figure out what it is! We did an oil change and added Rislone, it quieted it some but not completely so we did another oil change using synthetic blend oil and added Sea Foam and Lucas Oil Stabilizer and no change. It makes the noise upon starting it but stops after you hit second gear. Any ideas what this could be? It's not getting louder, not smoking, not burning oil or transmission fl
How many miles on it,sounds like lifter noise which is normal for high mileage jeeps,but if you have over 140k it is not a good idea to run synthetic oils as they are thinner than conv oil and it might start to consume oil. ... 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Check gages light turns on and doesn't go off. Already had the oil changed, the oil pressure needle keeps marking 0. It had the same problem once but I changed the oil and kept working fine; then about 2 months after that oil change the oil pressure needle started to drop again, so I changed the oil once again, kept working ok, and since that oil change it only has been less than a month, and the oil pressure needle dropped to 0, and the check gages light is on
At this point I would strongly suggest that you have your mechanic hook a mechanical oil pressure guage to the engine and make absolutlely sure that the pressure is up to manufacturers standards. It may simply be a failing oil pressure sending unit, ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a 2000 Pontiac Firebird with 90,000 miles on it. I put in Gunk engine cleaner and ran it for 5 minutes as directed then drained the oil. I then did an oil change (Quaker State 10-30) and put in Lucas oil stabilzer (heavy duty). The oil pressure at idle is 90 psi and when driving it could go as high as 110 psi. I removed the oil pressure sensor and blew it out with compressed air and there was no change. If the sensor is faulty would it show high pressure? Do I have oil blockage or is the
The sensor can show high pressure when that is not the case, they fail high not low, take the sender out and plug in a mechanical guage to verify this, that is the only way to be 100% sure. ... Pontiac Firebird
I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer. The check gages light came on and the oil pressure gage went to low. I checked the oil and it looked fine. So I did an oil change and added luxoil. The light went off and the pressure was fine for about 5 days. the light came back on and I don't know what to check next. Someone said maybe the sending unit? Is there a way I can find out exactly what that light is trying to say. I also replaced my radiator a few weeks ago and that seems fine.

While driving my 91 dodge dynasty the oil pressure is fine, but when i am stopped at a light, the oil pressure goes to almost nothing and it starts burning oil, (oil needed changed after a week,) when the car is cold its fine, but once it warms up is when it starts. when idiling before shes completly warmed up youll hear a loud knock and the oil pressure drops. I havent had the car very long and have replaced : Battery, thicker oil, thermestat, and one of the sensors to work the temp gage.
If this is a loud knock from lower part of the engine then its the crank bearings, I personally think that the engine is done. ... 1991 Dodge Dynasty
I have a 2003 Bonneville. The oil pressure gage is spiked at 120. Over the past couple of years I have had to put a quart of oil in between oil changes only every once in a while. Since this problem with the gage appeared my light came on for low oil and I had just put a quart in about a month ago. I've never had to put another quart in this quickly before. At the same time my temp. gage would only go up about half as high as normal. It has since gone back up to around 200 which is about normal.
Chances are the oil pressure sending unit is not working or unplugged it is located by the oil filter. the low level oil sensor is in the oil pan and is not related to the gauge .make sure to tell the parts person weather oil sending unit is for a ga ... Pontiac Bonneville
I recently replaced head gaskets on a 4.7 engine. After completion we noticed that the oil pressure drops off to zero after running for approximately 15 minutes at normal engine temperature. The pressure stays up while engine is cold. We changed the oil to a different weight, since the same problem. We pulled the pan, no slug build up. Changed the oil sender, no changes. Removed valve covers and rechecked timing marks on cams...no problems. Any suggestions or advice would be helpful. T

Oil light flickers. Just changed my radiator, truck runs cooler and also changed my battery (check engine light used to turn on before I started to disconnect the battery cable and reconnect it; and I changed the battery, no more check engine light on). The oil light flicker started a day ago on Sunday. I added the Lucas Oil: Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer engine oil additive on Saturday. Could this additive be the culprit? The only time my oil light used to flicker was when overfilled it w
Check the oil pressure with a mechanical test gauge and it will likely be ok, if so replace the oil pressure sending unit. Do not use any oil thickener in this engine it can damage the bearings. ... 1991 Mitsubishi Mighty Max
The oil pressure guage on my 2006 nissan frontier is reading very high after recently changing the oil, however, the correct amount of oil was added during the change. Furthermore the oil dipstick indicates the correct oil level was obtained. I've changed the oil in this vehicle many times in the past, and this has never happened. The gauge generally sits right in the middle under normal operating conditions.
The guage may rise a little when you accelerate the vehicle...but if it is pegged high, and does not fluctuate, when you turn your ignition key on an off...Your oil pressure switch maybe going bad...Goodluck ... 2006 Nissan Frontier
When i come to a complete stop the oil gauge moves to L. The message center displays low oil pressure and warning signal say high temp low oil. When I start to drive everything goes back to normal. Took it to the ford dealer, they replaced the the oil sender unit. This did not help. What could be the problem?

I have a 1993 chevy blazer 201000 miles. It is the 4.3l CPI Vortec engine. The car has been running great even though its a beater, I recently replaced the pcv valve, fixed the leaky oil cooler lines, put an aftermarket air filter in because the old one wouldn't fit with the new oil cooler lines to the radiator. I flushed the radiator, tranny fluid, gave it an oil change,changed the fuel filter (which had pressure), changed plugs, wires, cap rotor, ignition coil, S-Belt, added some lucas fuel

Today i found that the reason my car has been leaking oil is because my oil cap was gone!! the engine was dry this morning and clunking. I immediately parked it and added oil and a stabilizer. when i turned the car on it immediately stopped clunking but when moving from a completely stopped position it clunks some and then stops. Noticed it happens when I turn a corner too some. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to prepare myself for the worst:0(

Help I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4x4. Recently, it started surging on me. While I am driving, the oil pressure gauge will go high then return to normal. While it is doing this, my RPM's go low and high. Any suggestions? I have had the spark plugs changed but, the guy told me it doesnt have spark plug wires. I have added injector cleaner, changed the air filter also. Maybe needs a fuel filter? Any suggestions?
