No oil pressure when idling/stoplight


What is the mileage on the vehicle? What type of oil are you using, synthetic or conventional oil? Older engines that have a fair amount of wear (loose essentially). I had this problem on two different vehicles. If the oil is not near time to be changed (fairly clean oil) I would get a new oil filter and prepare it by filling it with STP oil treatment. This is thick stuff and will thicken your oil. Remove the old oil filter and put the new one on. Start the engine and let it idle for a minute then shut it off. Check the oil level and add more STP to bring it back up to the full mark. Start it and check the oil pressure. If this helps bring the pressure up then I'd say its time to go to a thicker oil. I switched to 0w40 synthetic after trying 5w30 (5w30 is recommended by mfr.) and have had no more trouble. The thing is that synthetic oil tends to thin more at temperature than conventional oil does.

2001 chrysler town & country oil light is on


If you are taking the car to the garage or a mechanic, mark the oil filter before leaving home to make sure the filter is changed. After the oil has been changed when you return home you can check the filter to see if it was changed because the oil will only be changed. Since some mechanics know an owner of a vehicle will not check. Also, AutoZone have a very good quality oil for the chrysler town and country. Good Luck

What causes the oil light to come on?


The oil light will come on orange if your oil level is low. The oil light will come on red if your oil pressure is low. The oil light will come on, then turn off if your oil level sensor needs replacing. Alex

suspect the oil sending unit, it is mounted at the rear of the engine at the back lip of the intake manifold. I recommend that you install a manual oil gage in the the oil sending unit hole and start the eneine and get an accurate oil pressure reading before you replace the sending unit.....GOOD LUCK

Oil light comes on intermitently. Oil & filter last changed 2,500 miles ago. Oil level is full and clean. Where is the oil pressure sensor/switch?


if you change oil every 2,500 miles , maybe is a oil pump failure, if not , then remove engine oil pan and clean oil pump strainer, use good quality oil

Oil light blinks and chimes when I come to stop. It stops blinking and chiming when I accelerate. I have changed the oil and know it is full.


the oil pressure switch may need replacing or youre oil pressure is low check the oil pressure switch first if it is leaking oil at the switch this will cause the problems

Oil light comes on at certain times


First, check the oil level on the dipstick. If it is low, add the required amount of approved motor oil. If the level is correct and the light still comes on, there may be other issues.
