Why Is My Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Oil Light On?

why is my chrysler jeep dodge ram oil light  on?


Bob Howard Chrysler Dodge Ram welcomes you to discover why your car’s oil light is on.

It can be a little scary when the oil warning light comes on in your dashboard. Engines need oil, and a lack of it can have destructive consequences. Before you get too worried, figure out which light is on, do a few simple checks to see maybe why it is on, and then decide your next steps. However, if your engine starts making a ticking sound when the oil light turns on, you need to pull over as soon as you can. An oil light combined with a ticking engine means that your engine is getting damaged, and driving it could destroy your engine.


Oil Warning Light vs. Oil Change Light

Is It The Oil Change Light, Or Is It Just The Oil Warning Light

Making sure it’s not just a scheduled maintenance reminder is your first step to understanding your oil light. The maintenance reminder could have the same sound and warning light, depending on your car. If you are past due on your recent oil change, it may even say ‘Change Oil Now’ and look ominous. It’s not quite as bad as the oil light but ought to be taken care of, so let us handle that to avoid any further issues.

 Why Is My Car Leaking Oil?

Why Is My Car Losing Oil?

If your engine is low on oil, it might trigger the oil warning light. Some normal reasons for leaking oil are:

  • Worn oil filter
  • Drain plug not sealed correctly
  • Gaskets are deteriorating
  • Oil filler cap is damaged

Even if you are not a mechanic, you can check under the hood for leaks. The engine is going to be dirty, but you can spot an oil leak if you see oily, wet spots. Adding oil between routine oil changes can be a quick fix, but it can still eventually cause low oil pressure if it is not taken care of and cause damage.

What Does Low Oil Pressure Mean?

What Happens If My Car Has Low Oil Pressure?

Low oil pressure means not all internal components of the engine might not be lubricated correctly. Unlubricated engine parts can get damaged and can cause total failure. If you have confirmed the engine has the correct oil levels, then the oil warning light could be anything from the oil pump, a sensor, or even low oil pressure alone. Your car needs to be examined by our technicians in these situations. Running an engine on low oil will likely cause permanent damage.
