Having problems with your 2001 Dodge Stratus ?
Oil light is on
\015 I have a 2001 dodge stratus and the oil light came on.... the oil level is full and i just got the oil change 3 weeks ago.. could the oil pressure switch be bad\015
I had the same issue on my '01. I hoped the issue would just go away, but when it didn't I took it into the dealership. They found a sensor that had gone bad and replaced it. Fortunately, it was not engine-threatening. As I understand it, oil lights are not designed to tell you if your oil is low, it usually means your pressure is low, which could mean a compression issue. Better get it checked out soon if you haven't already. You may want to find a good auto repair shop (I found one on cartalk.com) rather than taking to the dealer.
