Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan
I changed the oil and the level is fine, but the alarm and the low oil light come on when i slow down or when i stop, and cease when i speed up
You need a mechanical .guage to connect to your engine to tell for sure if it is a real problem. but most cases a new sending unit for the oil will fix the issue. I don't know on your exact model but a sending unit is normally cheap to replace.easy to change. and normally close to oil filter. if it doesn't fix it have a mechanic check your actual oil pressure.

SOURCE: oil light is on
May be bad oil pressure sending unit. Best way to check is to connect a mechanical oil pressure guage to engine and check pressures when engine is warm. Should be no lower than 40 psi at idle when warm, no higher than 70 psi at 2000 rpm.

The pump is probably going and provides pressure only under high speeds. Could also be a leak, so check underneath the car first.

it is most definitely the oil pressure sender!
standing in front of your car, look behind your engine from above, below the head and screwed into the block on the right side is the sensor.
