First, check the oil level, if ts low that could be your problem. If its full, you could have either a faulty oil pressure sending unit, or (hopefully not), a bad oil pump. If the car is still under warranty, I'd take it to Chrysler and have them look at it. You could try a higher viscosity of oil too, but I'd make sure everything else is ok first. That cars still a little too new to be having problems like that.
To solve this problem you must take several things into account. How many miles on your engine? Has it been well maintained? Are there any other symtoms, such as rattling or knocking when starting? These are "soft" engines. They are expensive used and hard to find. They are prone to premature failure. The water pump is inside the engine and can leak coolant in small amounts into the oil. It causes sludge which both reduces the oils lubricity and eats away at the metal components. Furthermore it clogs the lubrication passages of the engine. Once you have this problem there is seldom an inexpensive solution. Changing the Crankshaft, bearings, oil pump and timing chain may work if the top end of the engine is okay. An operation of this type is like major surgery on an 80 year old man. Engine replacement is the sure fix. I recommend full synthetic oil and a short oil change interval to extend your engines life expectancy.

Bought car five days ago. when originally cranking rpm's would stay high and only go down once in gear. now when cranked rpm's are less than a thousand and oil light comes on and starts to run hot. while driving once you exceed one k rpm's oil light goes off and car will still get hot. however, if i go crank the car in driveway and let it idle, rpm's over one k the car will just sit there perfect with no problem.


The grinding below your feet is the starter,the oil light will allways come on when the rpm's drop to low.\015\012This sounds like a vacuum leak,clogge EGR, throttle position sensor,or incorrect timing.\015\012\015\012what is the te ... Land Rover Range Rover

I am driving a friend's car and the check engine light came on. The car shakes a bit when idling and while driving. She made mention of a cracked oil pan or something to that affect. Could the car just be low on oil? I have no idea where the dip stick is? I may be blink but I swear I'm looking.

I have a 2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara 2.5L V-6. After having someone replace the head gaskets and changing the oil a few times the oil light is starting to come on. It starts out with no light but within 5min its blinking a bit. When driving it only blinks at normal driving 2000 RPM range but I also notice if I put it in neutral while driving and rev the engine to 3000-4000rpm the light goes out. (I guess due to more oil flow/pressure) But after driving a little more the light starts to come on m

The oil light came on all of a sudden. The oil light goes off when driving the clutch car. I drove the car about 20 miles. When I checked there was not the proper oil level. it seems there is none in the car. Shall I put oil in the car and drive it to the maintenance shop?

1997 BMW 740i: When I first start it up it will run fine until I depress half or more throtle then the CEL light would blink. After that it runs with no power and struggles to even maintain 35 mph speed. Wouldn't accelerate easily past 3000rpm. When I come to a stop light I would feel the engine missing on multiple cylenders and whole car shakes. If I turn the ignition off, disconnect, and reconect the MAF, then start, the missfiring goes away and it idles fine and drives fine if I keep it p

2003 Toyota Corolla oil pressure light flickers then goes to solid after a short period of time. Last time this happened, changed oil and filters and light went away. Now after maybe 1000 miles of driving, symptom is starting up again. Oil level is okay. When I stop the car and turn off the engine, the light goes off and I can drive for a while before it comes back on. Any ideas?

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

Hi I have a 05 honda civic LX 5 speed with 74000 miles. Has a little bit of a rough idle, the check engine light is on and blinks when sitting in idle. When driving it stops blinking and just stays on with out the blink. OK, so got a dianostic and it says it is misfiring in all 4 cylinders. We changed spark plugs, didn't help. Then we noticed that when we unplugged the first coil pack closest to passenger side while the car is running it didn't disturb the the idle or the way the car was running
