04' ram 2500 Hemi
Last week my 04 Hemi's oil dropped to zero and the check engine light came on. I immediately pulled over shut it off and checked the oil. Well overdue for an oil change there was barely any oil on the dipstick. Luckily this happened directly across the street from Valvoline. Quick oil change and I was back in business.
Until today that is......... On my way home from Atlanta I punched it and was followed up by the oil dropping to zero again. Checked oil and its still full but the engine is making a horrible banging sound now. I started it back up and the oil pressure came back up and noise went away. I had no choice but to drive it home and shut it down each time the oil pressure dropped. Happened 4 or 5 times on the way home. Any idea what has happened here aside from an idiot not changing his oil on a regular basis?
