Oil Pressure light comes on....

Hello,I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan with 71,000 miles on it. The oil pressure light comes on at times. When I am stopped at a traffic light in gear with my foot on the brake, the car will jump and lose rpm, stall and then it cuts off. That’s when the oil pressure light comes on. I start the car back up and the oil pressure light is gone and it runs for a while until a couple traffic lights later and repeats the process. The car also cuts off and the oil pressure light comes on when I start the engine and put it in reverse and try to back up. Other than that I don’t have any other problems, smell anything or hear any noises at all. Runs smooth. 

I just bought this car from a used dealer and it supposedly passed an inspection. I also got an oil change (they didn’t notice any leaks) but the problem continues. What could be causing this? What should I do….am I looking at a serious problem. Thanks much! Any help is appreciated :)

The oil light should come on when the car stalls, this is normal. The stalling isn't, do u have a warranty thru the dealer u purchased it from? Most have at least a 30 day warranty. A 2004 should have included some type of warranty. U should bring it back, and they should correct the problem at no charge if u recently purchased it, and there is some sort of guarantee. Let me know if there is.

How do I change oil ressure switch in 2004 chryler sebring lxi 2.7 engine


first off if the oil warning light is on, u need to check the oil pressure with a gauge with the engine at operating temp. and make sure oil pressure is up to spec. a bad switch can cause it to come on also. on the backside of the engine there is an aluminum heat shield covering the switch held on with 3 15mm bolts. after you remove the shield the switch can be removed with a deep socket. dont over tighten the new one when you put it in.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring, the timing belt broke, had it replaced, when i got the car back th oil light was on and would go off for a few seconds then come back on, and now it stays on all the time....


Sounds like bad oil pressure switch. Is the engine making any loud noise(s)? I'd replace oil pressure switch and/or check connection at oil pressure switch.

For about 4 months now my 2007 sebring shuts off for no reason after driving on the highway. The oil light comes on and the car shuts off with the key still in the ignition and the car still in drive. I...


Anytime the oil light goes on, I would think that the pressure has dropped, assuming the oil sending unit is working properly.

How long ago was the engine oil changed?
I had a low oil pressure signal in a 1997 Cadillac Deville LImousine which went away after I had the engine oil changed.

Sometimes, the wrong viscosity or oil break down can cause the oil pump not to generate enough pressure for the oil pressure light to go on.

I looked at the Recalls for the 2.7L engine and couldn't find anything regarding engine oil pressure light going on mistakenly, but this doesn't mean that it's not a problem on your vehicle. There are 2 other sized engines for this vehicle.

So, what's the engine size for this Chrysler Sebring?
Does the engine smoke at all after all of this?

2004 chrysler sebring idle speed is too slow. HOw


why do you want your rpms higher while idling? you don't want them high because your gas bill will reflect that. slow shouldn't matter but if it's dying while on idle it could either be your mass air flow sensor or your fuel filter being clogged

Oil light on while driving 2002 Sebring


2.7 ? This motor has oil problems if not changed every 3000 miles. Put a chrysler filter on it and the correct weight of oil, never use a fram oil filter.

2002 Chrysler Sebring Oil pressure light


Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.

Oil light??


I was lucky on mine. It was just a bad oil sender switch that needed to replaced, plus the cable connector up-grade. Oil was leaking past the switch. Oil pressure was measured at full spec, both at idel and running.
