When the truck is heathed up, go to stop and oil pressure gauge goes down and rebounds to normal. The oil light comes on for just a second, then goes out, and throwing no codes. Please help, thanks in advance.
didnt know a rebuild, sorry. 400rpm is low for me, mine at 700rpm. brought it down from 750 myself. you prob, hopefully is just a failing sender for the pcm. do you think the idle rpm should stay up higher?
Spun360, I thought you were just messing with him about the sludge.
Like Mad 1 said, check the oil pressure with a mechanical (real) guage to see what oil pressure really is, if you can. A new oil pressure sender is only about $32. If the pressure is actually low, pull the pan.
No matter what, I wouldn't put the pan back on my truck without a new oil pump.
Also, 400 RPM's at idle is too low. That can cause a low oil pressure condition.
just got a new sender only $20! going to replace that this weekend. The RPM's don't drop untill you go to stop and are slowing down. it idles around 600-700 i suppose. Where can you hook up a mechanical gauge to test pressure? Thanks for the help.
Here is a picture of the oil sending unit on the back of the block. In this picture it's just to the left of the distributor. (I took the picture leaning over the engine)
If you are just hooking up a gauge to check on pressure install the mechanical gauge in the same hole as the sending unit. If you plan on keeping the gauge hooked up, before you take the old one off, take the new one (easier to get the correct size) to the parts store and get a 'T' fitting with one male and two female ends so that you will have an extra spot for the mechanical gauge.
It's a tight spot, so, do it with the engine cooled off. (Huh, I have an oil leak)
Been a while since i've been on here, but recently decided to do a top end rebuild of my 408.
Here's what I went with:
F&B 2x52x55 throttle body
Hughes F1 AirGap
Ford Racing 24# Fuel injectors (HemiFever recommended, but seem small)
Hughes MAGNUM INDY "X" HEADS W/ 2.02" STAINLESS (HUG20300C)...
I have searched for this forever and know one will help me when ever I try to do a burnout I do I like everyone says brake to floor gas to floor and slowly let the brake out but it just stays at 1500 rpm and won’t get past that I’m not sure why I do have headers cherrybomb exhaust aftermarket...

I got one of those performance programmers and tuned my truck for performance on 91 octane. It seemed to run fine for months (actually, off and on it was fine for years). Yesterday, out of the blue, my truck wouldn't start. It would turn fine over but not fire up. I could...
Hello fellow mopar maniacs!
Thought I would share my new engine build. The 5.9 I have has 84k on it and using oil. Why those low miles and oil consumption has got me. Must be the valve seals or cracked heads... I don't know.
I replaced the keg intake with a Hughes FI intake and it dropped the...
