Open Question

Oil pressure? I have a 2002 sebring 2.7. I would like to do an oil pressure test on this vehicle but cannot find what the pressure should run (i.e. at idle, at a specific RPM).

SOURCE: Where is the oil pressure sending unit on 2004 Dodge stratus

Most likely the oil pressure switch may be damaged. This is a simple procedure. Change and observe the results

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.

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.

SOURCE: 02 cherokee losing oil pressure when accelerating, fine at idle.

Was the sending unit an aftermarket part?We like to install the original part back into most vehicle, but because of people price shopping, this can cause some issues. If the switch is working properly, the gauge should rise as the engine RPM's increase as you stated. With the key on and the engine off, disconnect the sending unit wire and ground it. The gauge should go to the highest reading, and that checks the wire, and the gauge. I suspect that the sending unit is failed or not the proper one for your vehicle.

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?

Getting ready to purchase 2002 chrysler sebring. Took it for a 15 mile test drive and the oil light kept flashing and the car made a ticking noise the whole time. Any ideas? It has 102,000 miles.


Recommendation... Do Not purchase an 02 chrysler sebring! While it is a cute car and looks nice, they have consistently been rated as one of the worst vehicles based on expense of shop repairs, and also rated one of the worst vehicles for amount of time spent in shops. The oil light flashing is a sign that the car should not be driven due to not enough oil in the vehicle, any owner who overlooks that light, especially when trying to sell it, has obviously not taken very good care of it, therefor another reason.. NOT to by a chrysler sebring.

2001 chrysler sebring oil pressure light comes on when the car is stopped at red lights while moving the light never comes on .Another question i have is why does the air conditioner sound so loud outside...


The oil pressure light is a serious problem...this needs to be looked at right away, or you face a seized engine (one that no longer moves). It sounds like the oil pump will need to be replaced. The reason the light goes out while moving, is that the engine is running faster, so the worn-out pump is able to create enough pressure to shut the light off. Don't hesitate to get this fixed ASAP! As for the A/C, it could be due to a lack of oil in the system (due to a leak) or a worn out drive clutch or belt.

2000 Chrysler Sebring V6 oil pressure light comes on when oil is warm. Replaced the seals and value cover and still the light comes on while Idel now drops below 5 rmp


Here is how I fixed the low oil pressure light problem without using any parts, only the labor to remove the oil pressure sensor is needed. I have an 02 seabring convertible 2.7L engine and I was having the same problem with my oil light coming on at an idle. I bought a new sensor replaced the old one and had the same problem. I than got a test kit and tested my oil pressure. It was very good, never lower than 11 PSI hot at an idle. I was reading about the wire connector modification, but I had an 02 and this mod came out in 98, surely Chrysler incorporated this mod on its newer vehicles. Well after checking more they did not and this is what turned me off on Chrysler products forever. For a manufacturer to produce a vehicle with a known defect and a modification fix and not incorporated this modification on its newer vehicles is inexcusable. After reading that the modification was to stop pressure build up in the sensor housing I decided to make a pressure release hole in the sensor housing. I took my old oil pressure sensor and using a 1/8 inch bit I drilled a small hole at the base of the plastic sensor tower. I put the old sensor in and drove for a week, no problem with my light coming on. To test further I took the new oil pressure sensor I bought and drilled a hole in it. Put it in and I've been driving for months and no problem with my oil pressure light coming on now.
