Is the engine getting louder?  You most likely have a bad oil sending unit or a failed oil pump.  Have a pressure test done on the oil system.  If its low it's time for a new motor...or a new car.
Sadly, all my experiences with Audi's have been horrid.

My 2003 dodge stratus idles rough like it might die out then when you start pressing the gas to accelerate it has a tough time accelerating right away but then when it starts goin it gets smoother also...


check or replace fuel filter for clogging up. if it does clog up, then you will not get enough fuel to engine to run it properly. it will stall at stops, and be very sluggish on takeoff. check fuel pressure if need be. could also be a bad catylist convertor. so check above first. Rent a fuel pressure guage from advance or oreilley's and check fuel pressure if needed. they will tell you the proper fuel pressure for your car.

The change oil light came on. on my friends 2002 monte carlo ss so i gave it an oil change and a new filter . the light won't go off.


The "Oil Change Reminder Light" has to be reset.

To reset the oil change reminder light with the accelerator pedal, turn the ignition switch to the ON position. Do not start engine. After turning the ignition ON, depress the accelerator pedal fully to the floor and let it up again 3 times within 5 seconds. The oil change reminder light should flash a few times to let you know that it is resetting. If it does not flash, turn the switch OFF and repeat the procedure. After it flashes, turn the ignition switch OFF. Then start the engine. The light should come on for a bulb check then go out and stay out.

Where is oil light reset button? Light stays on regardless of condition of oil.


  1. Turn the ignition to "ON", with the engine off.
  2. Slowly fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. The reset is complete when the chimes sound and the "CHANGE OIL" lamp goes out. If the lamp stays on and no chime is heard, repeat the reset procedure.
  3. Turn the key to "OFF".
  4. If the "CHANGE OIL" lamp comes back on when the vehicle is started, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure.

When i turn off the car sometimes the oil light comes on


Then what? It stays on forever. Comes on for just a second? You watch it till it goes out----you know just like the refrigerator light. But how do you know it's off when the door is closed?
Man, you could spend you whole day at this.
If the oil light comes on after it's running......now there's a problem.

Clearly not enough info to comment on this. Who cares if the light comes on when the engine is off. It's not running, it doesn't need oil.Quick, when the motor is off, and you've reached your destination. Unass the seat.

Oil pump quits when transmission kicks down or heavy acceleration


I have only seen this happen once in my entire life...as it happens it was to one of my own cars (also a chrysler product) Normally if asked I'd say that oil pumps don't fail. BUT, it is possible that the drive gear on the pump has become just loose enough on the shaft that when pumping hard, it will spin slower and result in the conditions you mentioned. To test it you need to actually take the pump apart and put the shaft in a vise and try to turn the gear with a pair of waterpump pliers
Bottom line is: change the pump.

2001 intrepid first problem oil light flickers when gas is accelerated. drove on freeway accelerated gas to catch speed and had to come up once came up it cut off on me and would not start back up. just...


the flickering oil light is a common problem with the 2.7 engine. as long as the oil level is full and oil is changed regularly, and the light just flickers and doesnt stay on , shouldnt be a problem, or get the oil sending unit changed. the second problem car stallings sounds like either cam or crank position sensor. does the engine light come on. if so the code should tell you.
