I have a 1997 Chrysler Sebring 2.5L V6 with the oil light coming on after warming up. The idle seems ok, changed the oil sending unit, worked ok for a day now the light comes on at idle after warming up. Using 10w-30 oil, always changed every 3k or sooner. Owned this car since 1999. What puzzled me is why it worked fine after changing the oil sending unit (from Auto Zone). Oil level is perfect, never uses or leaks oil. The engine runs very smooth and quiet. What would be the best "next step"? 73

I would have the oil pressure checked with a guage and find out what it is for sure. the one day fix is odd ... 1997 Chrysler Sebring

Oil light When my 2003 Chrysler Sebring is at idle after the car has run for approx. 15 min. or when I stop at a light the oil light comes on then when I accelerate the light goes off. It used to be once in a while now it is at every stop when my foot is off of the accelorater. I have checked the oil level and I have the oil changed every 4000 miles. What could be the problem?

I suspect that the oil pump is weak or it has a lot of miles. I would try a little thicker oil first to see if this helps with the light. Maybe even use a 20/50 ... 2003 Chrysler Sebring

I have a 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager. The oil light keeps coming on when the engine is at an idle, under 1000 rpms. If I am driving and the RPM's get up above 1000 the light will go off. I checked the oil level and it is full. I am guessing there is a problem with the oil pump? I also changed the oil sending unit.

Could also be wrong type of oil but worst case is the big end bearings inside the engine have gotten to big to maintain oil pressure and as you guessed the oil pump could be worn out, i would try changing oil pump first. ... 2000 Plymouth Grand Voyager

Hello, This is the problem i am having. my 2001 chrysler sebring ran low on oil for some unknown reason and the oil light was coming on. Shortly after the engine started to have a knocking sound to it. kind of like a rattleing. I then put 4 quarts of oil in and made sure it was at the correct level. i know a little about cars so i know that it isnt valve tapping. it sounds the same but its alot louder of a knocking sound. instead of a tapping sound.do you have any suggestions

I think your engine may be junk now. its a good idea to check oil on any vehicle daily as suggested in any vehicle owner manual. the piston rings could be worn out causing it to use oil or a bad head gasket, or maybe u have a oil leak you dont know a ... 2001 Chrysler Sebring

I have a 92 Chrysler new yorker 3.3 engine 160K mileage. One morning, I stopped at a red light and the "check gauges" light came on during idle. I immediately noticed my oil pressure gauge lower than usual. Upon pulling away from the traffic light and accelerating, the light went out and the oil pressure came up to normal again. The oil pressure drops as the car idles, sometimes to the point of triggering the "check gauges" light then returns to normal during driving. The oil level is full and t
