Question about 2003 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Oil light When my 2003 Chrysler Sebring is at idle after the car has run for approx. 15 min. or when I stop at a light the oil light comes on then when I accelerate the light goes off. It used to be once in a while now it is at every stop when my foot is off of the accelorater. I have checked the oil level and I have the oil changed every 4000 miles. What could be the problem?

I suspect that the oil pump is weak or it has a lot of miles. I would try a little thicker oil first to see if this helps with the light. Maybe even use a 20/50

2004 chrysler sebring idle speed is too slow. HOw


why do you want your rpms higher while idling? you don't want them high because your gas bill will reflect that. slow shouldn't matter but if it's dying while on idle it could either be your mass air flow sensor or your fuel filter being clogged

OIL LIGHT COMES ON AT COMPLETE STOP. CAR CUTS OFF PERIODICALLY.


From other sources:
The oil light that only comes on at idle or stop is due to a dirty or faulty Oil Sensor in the oil pan. They get gunked up due to a bad design and sludge build up. Easy to fix, just replace or have replaced at next oil change.
