The oil light comes on at times and goes off as the rpms go up. What can be done about the light?


Maybe your engine is idling too slowly, If the revs are below say 700rpm the low pressure warning light could come on especially when the engine is hot.. If the idle speed is ok try a heavier grade of oil in the engine. Next try a new oil pressure sensor. It's got to be one of these things. Check the engine running temperature . An over-hot engine will cause the oil light to come on too.

The oil light intermittently comes on


Common sighs of a faulty oil pressure sending unit. You can pic one up at Auto Zone for less then the dealer and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools. Or you can take it to a local garage, and have them install the new oil pressure sending unit the same time you service the oil and filter. It takes an extra 15 min to install, so check with the garage on how much they will charge you. Most of the time you can tip the tech an extra $10.00 to install it for you and you keep your hands clean. Good luck and keep me posted.

This same thing happened to me it was the oil sending unit that needed to be replaced. It's an easy fix but you have to take off the heat shield to get to it.

2004 dodge stratus oil light started coming on when I slowed down or cam to a stop and then would turn off when I started driving again. Now it stays on al the time


You need to have that chk'd out. Even low oil pressure can damage the engine let alone no oil pressure. Ck your oil level. It is a serious issue to have that light on. Good Luck, _Ned_

Where is the oil pressure sending unit on 2004 dodge stratus?


per the Haynes manual for the 95-05 Dodge Stratus on the 2.0L & 2.4L DOHC 4 cyl engines, the oil pressure sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.4L SOHC 4 cyl engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. On 2.5L & 3.0L V6 engines, the sending unit is located on the oil filter housing, on the front side of the block. On 2.7L V6 engines, the sending unit is located at the left end of the rear side of the block. To access it, remove the heat shield.

Check the engine oil level in your engine. If you also get the oil light coming on when making a hard corner along with when you brake sometime, it might be that the oil is just a bit lower than it should be and the movement (sloshing) of the oil in the oil pan might cause the oil pickup in the engine to be starved for oil for a few seconds.
