    I continuously check my oil levels and they are good. That is why I changed the oil pressure switch. I recently had my oil changed and verified oil levels and yet with a new pressure switch the oil light still comes on.

    You have low oil pressure, don't drive this until the problem is fixed unless you have around $5000.00 for a new engine..

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.

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?

2002 Chrysler Sebring Oil pressure light


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.

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.

My oil light keeps


You need to have oil pressure checked manually with oil pressure guage. There is a good possibility that the engine has excessive wear or a bad oil pump and oil pressure is really low. (It's like have a bad heart) That would definitely trigger oil light.If you have low pressure and its not taken care of immediately it will ruin the engine from lack of lubrication to vital parts. Good Luck contact me if you need more help.Thanks for using FIX YA
