Question about 2002 Chrysler Concorde

2 Answers

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 problem when they had the car. It started 10min after I drove it off the lot. Said to replace the sendor. But i read up on most of the concord reviews after te sendor is replaced the engine blows up. Did I just throw away my $4,000

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!

2003 concord, 2.7 engine v6 crank engine 1st time wont start. Turn key off and crank again and will start.. If warm engine and not sat long will fire first crank.


Test the fuel pressure regulator. It has a check valve in it to maintain fuel pressure when the engine is not running.

3.5L V6. Why does oil pressure light turn on intermittently?


1. As a basic measure I would make sure the correct grade and spec oil is going in the engine. You can no longer trust that a local mechanic or even a dealer service center will necessarily use the required product as stipulated by the manufacturer. It is always better to buy and supply your own so you know the correct product is being used.

2. I would not assume there is a problem with the oil pressure warning light even though there could be.
The first thing the mechanic should have done when you reported the oil pressure issue is to hook up an independent mechanical oil pressure gauge and check oil pressure when the engine is hot at different RPMs. Any oil pressure issue will usually show up at idle when the engine has been warmed up properly and the engine oil is hot (unless you have some kind of intermittent oil pressure relief valve that is sticking). Just replacing parts without actually knowing what the oil pressures are at different RPMs is being sloppy and negligent.
This is what you need to do now. Contact a business that can hook up their own pressure gauge to your engine and have them check the oil pressure readings at various RPMs when the engine is fully warm. If there is a low oil pressure issue it will show up on the oil pressure gauge. As you have a new oil pump there should be no issue now with oil volume or a sticking oil pressure relief valve which on your engine should be part of the oil pump assembly.

3. Worn engines will not be able to sustain required oil pressures. Oil pressure is not produced by the oil pump. The oil pump produces oil flow but the resistance to flow is what produces the oil pressure and that resistance is created by fine clearances between operating engine parts especially on the crankshaft and components connected to it. Once the engine wears the clearances increase and the oil flows past the parts much more easily and produces/builds much less pressure.
How well your engine with over 90000 miles has been maintained depends on how often all the owners changed the engine oil and filter , whether they kept the engine oil level up to full (most owners rarely ever check oil levels between services) and whether they always used the correct product. Manufacturer oil change intervals shown in service schedules can be 10000, 12000 miles or more which is much too infrequent for the type of use 95% of private vehicles experience which typically are on the severe to very severe use end of the spectrum. Engine oil typically needs to be changed at least at half the mileage shown in service books (at least twice as frequently) and thus at least every 5000 miles if you want your engine to last.

I keep losing oil pressure when im at an idle but when i acc. the pressure comes back up and i have checked the oil it is fine


What is the make/model of the Jeep? What engine? Are you losing pressure completely or is it just low at idle? Many older Jeeps show little oil pressure at idle when the engine is warm. If you aren't hearing rattling like you are actually losing oil pressure, and the pressure comes up when you accelerate, you are probably OK.

When stopped at lights oil light flashes.. My oil level is fine. What could it be?


this is a common sign of a bad oil pressure sender, but could also be caused by low oil pressure, a sender is cheap,but it"s always smart to do a pressure test first with a mechanical gauge,you can obtain a mechanical gauge from most automotive parts stores. then you"ll have to locate and remove the oil pressure sender and install the gauge you bought. make your test at warm idle you should have at least 25 psi below that you may very possible have worn engine bearings making it impossible for the engine to have any better oil pressure at idle. if you have 25 or greater psi of pressure at idle replace your oil sender and you"ll be back on the road

Oil light flickers when in idle. Oil on dip stick measures fine.


install a mechanical guage to test the actual pressure, if its fine the sending unit is faulty, if nor remove the oil pan and check the oil pickup for blockage,

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.
