This is very common with the 2.7 engine. There is a history of sludge buildup in the engine. Something to do with the water I know it sounds crazy, but this is what I have found out on a "Google" search. If you go on Craigslist and searh for intrepids for sale you will find some needing engines. Then go on "" and try to find an engine for your vehicle. Very high priced. And we're talking used. You can try running and engine flush thru it (Do NOT drive the vehicle with the FLUSH in the engine) after idling for 10-15 minutes, drain the oil and filter and add a premium oil like synthetic blend or better.

Oil light comes on at stops after engine is warm

if your saying that your low oil pressure light is coming on (or flickering) at engine idle , but goes out when engine is above idle (going along) this is sure sign you have a problem in your engines oil pressure system :
serious !~

some common reasons for this to occur are:

worn out engine parts allowing oil to leak out and not lube parts properly (hi engine miles)

low oil level -not enough oil inside engine to get pumped around proper

restriction in oil system - blockage in oil passageways even oil filter will count (hi miles)

Oil light comes on when the car is idleing or when I let off of the gas it blinks what could be the problem?

Low oil pressure maybe? Oil pressure will vary depending on engine speed-higher speed=more psi, lower speed=less psi. If there is a mechanical reason for low oil psi then idle is when it will be low enough to turn on or flicker the light. Also, you could very possabily have a slugged up oil pick-up screen.

I would perform a coolant pressure test because these engines are known for leaking intake manifold gaskets.Check and see if your oil is starting to turn a creamy tan color.

I have 2004 bmw325i.recently the engine light came on and i check the oil and it was bare empty. i took it to where i bought the car and did an oil change, but the engine light is still on. what do you...

hi did they reset the light when they done the oil change? if not then that is the reason why it is still on, but to be honest, having low oil does not normally make the check engine light come on, you normally have an icon that looks like an oil filler can come on the dash when it is low on oil, this might be an underlying fault like an 02 sensor or MAF sensor that sort of thing, you would need to get it to a garage that has diagnostic equipment to do this for you...hope this helps

Oil light is on after car warms up, only while idling had the oil pressure checked and its fine. It's an 02 concorde with 2.7l v6 I just bought it 3 days ago and the dealer won't fix it. Said it wasn't a...

The oil pressure sensor is bad most likely. I can't see aany reason the sensor would cause the engine to blow up, other than it wasn't threaded carefully and it leaks oil until it is bone dry, and locks up the pistons.
They also get damaged because the heat shield isn't installed, because it can be a hassle, and they over heat, which ca also cause the seal to fail and the oil to leak out the sensor.
As long as the car has oil pressure, it will not be dangerous for the engine because this sensor doesn't work right.
Good Luck!

Toyota Corrolla 1989

The mechanic should check on the Idle and adjust the Idle .the car is vibrating because of the Idle is low and the engine can't do to move very easy .there is low fuel coming from the fuel pump going to the engine.The transmission of the car don't have a problem because of you just change the oil . But the Idle has to be adjusted until the car will not vibrate.
