Ok, I checked chrysler TSB's and their aren't any for low oil pressure for your truck, so try getting a mechanical gauge and hook it up and do a reading to rule out if the engine does have low oil pressure or not, just remove the sending unit and hook up a mechanical gauge where the sending unit goes, then get your reading, normally you should get about 40-80 PSI depending on the condition of the engine and oil weight etc. If their is oil pressure then it's either a faulty sending unit or a bad gauge on the dash. Be sure to use thread sealant on the sending unit and the mechanical gauge cause they do leak sometimes. After all that again do a seafoam oil treatment for the sake of taking care of the truck, that stuff works wonders. Not that seafoam is going to fix that problem, I wish! But it does clean well
