This is a job best left to a shop, the exhaust must be removed, and to do that without a rack is very difficult.

I have a Chrysler Town and Country 2001 every time I accelerate the oil light do not come on but when I put my foot on the brake the oil light pops up I got oil in it what could be the problem?


have you got the correct amount of oil in the sump
from what you describe it is an oil surge problem that moves the oil away from the pump pickup when braking especially if the pick up ia at the back of the pan
could be a broken oil pan baffle ,( incorrect pan fitted ) loose oil pipe pick up, low oil level

NO OIL PRESSURE. 243,000 MILES. NOT OVERHEATING. SEEMS LIKE NOISE IS COMING FROM TOP OF ENGINE.


With that many miles on the engine it could be sludged up or the oil pump could be failing.

That sounds like a pump... the oil pump is inside of the engine. You need to drop the oil pan to gain access - however, you will need to pull the motor to do that.

Problem with oil pressure


Either low on oil, check oil, or you may have a worn out oil pump. in which case you have to drop the pan and replace the oil pump. Check the oil level first.

Oil pressure drops to 0 when running for a couple of minutes


Sounds like your oil pump is giving way but the repair is not that hard. First you need to drain oil, take oil pan out, then you will be able to see the oil pump to check for any damage or sludge cloging the oil screen.
