Hi there....
first get the spark plugs checked. if the plugs have problems, there would be no check engine indication.

Why would my 2001 Sebring lxi 2.7l v6 rebuilt engine new sensors has oil light come on when stopping. why?


This is an oil PRESSURE issue, not oil level.
It is likely that when you stop, and the engine returns to idle, the oil pump is not creating enough pressure to push oil up to the top of the engine and lubricate the valve assembly.
I hate being the bearer of bad news, but the plastic impellers in most modern oil pumps do fail over time, especially if they've been disturbed by the work associated with an engine rebuild. Or, it could be that it is not sitting right on the pickup and feed tubes, and they are being blocked and causing pickup problems at low RPMs. The solution will involved dropping the pan to figure out what's going on with the pump.

1999 chrysler sebring low oil pressure at idle


It may be the oil pump. If the gauge is going up when the rpms increase it's probably not the gauge or pressure switch. If the computer senses the oil pressure is low it will shut the vehicle off to try to save it's self from catastrophic failure. Also it may start cranking longer before starting. Thats it building oil pressure before the computer will let it start. Make sure oil is full, clean & thick.

2004 chrysler sebring idle speed is too slow. HOw


why do you want your rpms higher while idling? you don't want them high because your gas bill will reflect that. slow shouldn't matter but if it's dying while on idle it could either be your mass air flow sensor or your fuel filter being clogged

Oil light comes on only when at an idle


I just had the same problem on an 04 Sebring with a 2.7L V6. The oil pressure sensor (switch) was the culprit. Several web references that I checked mention that the original sensors have issues with oil leakage, which eventually causes it to fail. The sensor itself is fairly inexpensive..about $15. It is located on the back side of the engine and is only accessible from under the car. Look for a small heat shield held on by three 15mm bolts. It is just to the driver's side of where the exhaust system goes behind the engine. The oil sensor is located under this shield. You will need a 1 1/4" deep socket to remove it. When installing the new sensor, be sure to use a torque wrench. It needs to be tightened to 14 ft/lb. Using more force than that, and you run the risk of damaging the sensor.

If this doesn't resolve the problem, you may have a problem with the oil pump either being defective or blocked with sludge. As one of the other gurus on here mentioned, this engine does have a known problem with sludge buildup. I hope this helps! Good luck!

Oil light flickers at traffic light stop. Engine at about 500RPM


as long as you have checked the basics,its possible its idling to low,if its ok when engine is cold and only happens when hot,(oil gets thin when it gets hot) i would recommend having oil pressure checked with a gauge

Where is the oil pump on a 2004 Dodge Neon?


Oil light that comes on while in idle means the oil pump screen is clogged or damaged, cause low oil pressure to the engine. That part is only $30. It could be a bad oil pump though, if that is the case the pump can run you $100. Either way you need to get it fixed ASAP it can cause major damage to the engine in a very short period of time!
