Hey everyone, i had a 2 hour trip to PA today and all was well on my way over but on my way back i decided to race this dodge lightning. Worse move I made all weekend
I put a little whopping on the truck but then my oil light came on that was the first time that had ever happened and i wasn't sure what it meant. So I pulled into a rest stop and popped the hood and there was antifreeze all over the place Im thinking a hose busted. I looked around the bay and couldn't find any definite leakage. I then checked the oil, it needed about half a quart. I put some oil in and jumped back on the road, the oil light continued brightening and dimming until it finally went off about 15 -20 min later. But now the coolant temp started fluctuating. I'm thinking i might need to put more fluid in.
My question here is what does the oil light really indicate? low oil, pressure, temp? I dont know.
