Could be a faulty sending unit, wiring problem, or you may actually have low oil pressure. You can replace the pressure switch, or have someone check the pressure with a mechanical gauge.

I have a dodge caravan 1998 3Lv6 every time the van warms up the oil light comes on. Now when I go a speed of 60 the light comes on and stays on until i give it gas. Would this be the oil sensor? And if so...

The oil pressure switch is located on the engine block, just above and towards the drivers side of the oil filter. You should take this to a shop and have them check the oil pressure just to be safe.

I have a 1998 Dodge Caravan and the oil gauge light dings when I slow down or stop. How can I fix this?

Your oil gage is telling you your engine is showing signs of wear / aging. (Possible wear on the main bearings, connecting rod, and camshaft bearings) Your idle may now be lower than it should be. Or your oil sending unit is failing. Or... the oil pump iself is not performing as it once did. Or the Oil pump pick up tube in the oil pan is clogging up. Have you tired a direct pressure reading of the oil pressure? If the direct pressure gage indicates same as your oil light then everything listed above will have to be checked to determine exactly what it is that needs fixing.

Oil light came on when idling; oil changed; still happening occasionally. If I put it in park or neutral and rev it - the oil light goes out. Could it be the oil sending/pressure unit? Is there an easy way...

make sure are using a genuine dodge oil filter and correct grade of oil to check further you need to have the oil pressure checked using a master gauge a garage would do this for you if ok replace pressure switch if very low could be pump and bearing wear is the idle speed set too low i would check this

Remove, check and replace the Oil Pressure Sensor. It should be located adjacent (just left of) the oil filter.

My 2.4 caravan is not shiffing to 3and 4 geer and the oil light keeps coming on i alread ghanged the oil two times.the van runs grate if I dont go over 40.

your transmission is in "limp mode"
it will not up shift because there is a problem with one of three sensors,
1=input sensor
2=output sensor
3=speed sensor
the computer won't let the transmission up shift because it doesn't know how fast you are going ,

The idle is not within spec for a grand caravan

You have either a bad idle speed motor or a bad coolant temp. sensor . You also more than likely have a check/service light on as-well . The vehicle will have to be took to the dealer or a good garage to have it scanned & cleared
