First, check the oil level, if ts low that could be your problem. If its full, you could have either a faulty oil pressure sending unit, or (hopefully not), a bad oil pump. If the car is still under warranty, I'd take it to Chrysler and have them look at it. You could try a higher viscosity of oil too, but I'd make sure everything else is ok first. That cars still a little too new to be having problems like that.

To solve this problem you must take several things into account. How many miles on your engine? Has it been well maintained? Are there any other symtoms, such as rattling or knocking when starting? These are "soft" engines. They are expensive used and hard to find. They are prone to premature failure. The water pump is inside the engine and can leak coolant in small amounts into the oil. It causes sludge which both reduces the oils lubricity and eats away at the metal components. Furthermore it clogs the lubrication passages of the engine. Once you have this problem there is seldom an inexpensive solution. Changing the Crankshaft, bearings, oil pump and timing chain may work if the top end of the engine is okay. An operation of this type is like major surgery on an 80 year old man. Engine replacement is the sure fix. I recommend full synthetic oil and a short oil change interval to extend your engines life expectancy.

06 chrysler 300 oil pressure light goes off and on im concerned its my engine


Test the sender first. It could just be a poor electrical connection on the sender or the sender itself. Check oil level too. If you have a lot of miles on the engine it's possible the oil pump is worn.

06 chrysler 300. When I'm at a red light, the oil check on the dash appears then a ding sound. I notice the car idles roughly amd when the light turns green and I start driving the car is fine


Ok what is wrong is your idling is to low which is controlled but a ( Throttle Position Sensor Switch) buy one of these and your problems will be gone, The ding you hear is low oil pressure warning going off once the idling goes back up the oil pressure goes back to being good.

Car shaking at idle, no engine check light


Sounds to me that you have a cylinder miss fire. Chrysler products generally set a code when a miss fire is detected. Does the shaking go away under a load (while driving) ? If the miss is always there I would focus on the ignition system and look for any vacuum leaks around the intake manifold area .

Oil Pressure drops but returns when i restart


your engine needs flushed .what is going on is idle has less pressure than driving and the sump is picking up dirt and debris but when you turn off or idle the debris falls off the sump.

Have an oil pressure test done.
One of 4 things could possibly cause that.
Bad oil pressure sending unit.
just the oil sending unit.
weak oil pump.
low oil---check oil, see if it needs any.
