Question about 2001 Dodge Neon

2 Answers

The oil light in my 2001 Dodge Neon will come on, off, then on again and stay on. I've already changed my oil and upgraded the gas I use. I'm currently using Castrol GTX, i'm not sure if it's a sludge build up problem or something else. Any help at all would be fantastic. Thank you!

Pull the connector off the oil sending unit and look to see if there is any oil in the connector and see if any is in the sending unit were the connector plug into it. If there is replace the sending unit. It should be dry and free of oil. Also go to the parts store and get something called brake cleaner to clean the oil out of the connector.

If your oil light comes on after the engine is warm at an idle. Then goes out upon accelerating, the problem is probably the oil pressure censor. Very common for this car as they are set at 5psi and at idle your oil pump is only building 4psi. As long as you hear no knocking sounds at idle you are safe for now. Just a combination of wear in the bearings and oil pump. I would upgrade to a better oil, 10w40 or 20w50. A full synthetic oil wouldn't hurt.

i have a 2003 dodge neon and mine does the same thing and i had the oil changed by the dealer, its full of oil as well, they put just a tad over in it and the light comes on and blinks for second then goes off and the only thing i do is let the oil go out on its own and get to the level its supose to be and once it gets to that it will stop, well it should but if you want to be sure have it checked out. i hope this helps you out, let me know if it does.
