Check the oil level.....if good. find or buy a cheap mechanical oil press gauge and check using that. porches are netorious for electrical issues. if it reads ok.....somethings still bad and get it fixed.

Oil light came on and dings. Just had oil changed? What could be the cause?


First, pull the dipstick on the engine and make sure you've got sufficient oil in the pan.
If not, DON"T drive it until you have sufficient oil as indicated on the dipstick
Alot of these chryslers don't have oil pressure guages, only lites to tell you when you are dangerously low on oil. if this is the case, be sure not to drive it until you have this issue resolved.
It also could be that the oil pressure sensor wire got knocked off the motor.
Be sure to have a mechanic put an oil pressure guage on your engine to physically check if you're getting oil pressure.
Don't take any chances on this... it means the difference between a running engine and one that is siezed..

Difference between oil sending unit and the oil pressure switch


Same part...make sure you get one for gauge, not idiot light though. If the engine has any knocking or ticking when pressure drops do not drive it and have a mechanical gauge installed to check actual pressure. Parts often have different names for same item...your driveshaft is actually called a propeller shaft!!!

Low oil pressure at idle


how low does the oil pressure drop?? is it below 40?

Oil pressure gauge reads past 80


now unless there is a very loud knocking of the motor which would mean that the engine's top end was not getting any oil I would say that your oil guage is sprung and needs replacing. a high pressure rating would indicate a restriction in the oil flow pasdt the sending unit or a plugged oil filter. if the filter were plugged you would know it because your enging would run tight in no time at all. replace the guage itself... please rate this........thanks
