96 ram 1500 4x4 5.2 with 260,XXX miles- It started yesterday when i went to start my truck. I started it and it seemed like it choked out and shut right off. Today i was driving and had to come to a quick stop and the RPM's dropped and it shut off. I then started to notice my oil pressure gauge needle shaking. I checked the oil and there is so much gunk in the dip stick tube that i cant read it. Everytime i put it in it comes out with oil all over it. When i got it home i was in my driveway and i punched the gas one time to rev it up and the RPM's dropped and it died. I did it a few more times and the same thing everytime. Im going to get a new oil guage to hook up to it for a true reading but any suggestions in the meantime???? Thanks in advance for any help and just for having this site available for people to use!
