Question about 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible
What kind of oil do i use?
Better check with owners manual, but I'd say if your in warmer weather area, 10-30 or 10-40 if hot there most of time. If cooler in winter , 5-30. I've had good luck with Castrol. If you want a little more insurance/protection, and cost, you might want to try synthetic oil, but they say not good to change back after, so keep that in mind. Personally I like standard or high mileage, and just change it at recommended intervals.

check to make sure all vacuum lines are on especially the one behind the throttle body also get a digital volt meter and check out your throttle body position sensor and also ask yourself when was the last time the fuel filter was changed

This maybe what is going on with your car. Here is something from Wikipedia, but if you Google it you will find 100's of hits. This is a common problem.
Oil sludge or black sludge is a solid or gel in motor oil caused by the oil gelling or solidifying, usually at temperatures lower than 100 degrees Celsius. Sludge can be a major contributor to Internal combustion engine problems, and can require the engine to be replaced, if the damage is severe. Sludge is usually caused by the presence of water in the oil, and can accumulate with use. Ways to minimize sludge production and accumulation includes performing frequent oil changes, using synthetic oil, and following the manufacturer's engine maintenance routine.
The following engines were reported by the Center for Auto Safety and/or their manufacturers to have a problem with sludge accumulation:

According to the Chrysler manual the heater/AC control unit bulbs can only be serviced by an "authorized service center after removal from vehicle" If your comfortable taking it apart to look anyway it probably can't hurt.

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.

Should be located close to the oil filter. It will screw in like a spark plug. It has a harness plug. Easy to change, save yourself $70 in labor. You will need a fairly large wrench to remove
