This link will take you to where you can download a manual for free. If you have a light that looks like an oil can on, this indicates a low engine oil pressure condition. I recommend not to drive the vehicle until repaired.

Increasing the weight of the oil by a shade will get rid of the problem, and adding a high-zinc motor oil will eliminate any possibility of sludge in the pan (with proper oil changes). However, as mentioned before, it is a band-aid fix. It will work indefinitely, if you are diligent with changing your oil every 3000 miles. Use 3.8 quarts of Rotella T 15w-40, add one quart of Lucas oil stabilizer, and use a WIX filter with an anti-drainback valve (which isn't really necessary since the filter hangs upside-down on a 2.7, but it's a good habit to use one on everything you drive). Do not use a Fram filter, Valvoline oil, or STP... or anything else. The three I mentioned above are the only ones to use, and DO NOT USE SYNTHETIC OIL/ADDITIVES. I bought a 2004 Intrepid for the whopping sum of $250 that had the oil light/idle/low RPM issue because the owner was told by Sternberg Chrysler Center in Jasper, Indiana that the engine was going to grenade in short order. He wasn't going to pay them in excess of $2000 to replace the engine. I've put tons of miles on it since, and absolutely NO sign of the light, even now with the 2/1 Oxygen Sensor bad (which lowers the idle down to 600 instead of 750-800 where it should be). I'd trust the car cross-country. It's an expensive oil change at around $40 instead of $20 with cheap components, but what's saving your engine worth to you? A heck of a lot, I'd hope!

start by checking the ground strap to the engine, and engine to body. The oil pressure sender unit may be bad. You may have to hook up an oil pressure gauge to the oil pressure sender port to verify proper oil pressure. Senders are cheap- I would just replace it and go from there.

COULD HAVE FAULTY OIL PRESSURE SENDING UNIT.CHECK OIL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 25 - 80 PSI AT 3000 RPM. 30 - 80 PSI AT 3000 RPM.
