Normally when you have this problem it is the oil sending unit is sticking and it is normally located near the oil filter

2004 Sebring 2.7 runs good till heats up then will die. like fuel starved. the oil light starts to come on at 1500rpms then runs rough and have to keep engine rpm high.

If you need to keep your rpm above 1500 to keep the oil light from coming on, you need to have that checked RIGHT NOW. When the light comes on, oil pressure is at an absolute minimum. Check the oil level in your crankcase, and top it up if necessary. If you still get the light coming on, you may have a bad oil pump, excessive wear on bearings, or a bad oil pressure switch. Get it checked out or you are liable to blow your engine.

I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 When Im driving for awhile the check gauges light comes on and oil gauge come down

You either have good oil pressure and a bad oil pressure sending unit, or your oil pressure really is low. Get it checked out, so you don'y destroy the engine.

The oil light comes on when the van is in idle, but not all the time mostly after driving awhile. All the fluid levels are ok. The oil & filter was just changed a couple months ago.

Replace the oil pressure sender and the problem should be solved . Fortunately , the senders tend to go out more frequently than the oil pump. If you change oil pressure sender and the light keeps coming on , you may have to consider replacing the oil pump in the motor or risk getting stranded some where with a blown motor.

Oil light flickers at traffic light stop. Engine at about 500RPM

as long as you have checked the basics,its possible its idling to low,if its ok when engine is cold and only happens when hot,(oil gets thin when it gets hot) i would recommend having oil pressure checked with a gauge
