Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring Sedan
My oil pressure light will come on after the car has warmed up but only when the rpm is less than 1000, when it isidle, or sitting still. Sometimes it just flickers but sometimes it stays solid. Also, recently there has been a ticking/grinding noise when I start the car, but only lasts a few seconds. Today I started it and it did the grinding thing but it also began to tick as I drove it. I drove around a while and then came home and let it rest a little. When I got back in it it did the grind thing a little but didn't tick as I drove. Does this sound like a problem with the lifters or maybe the oil sender?
I have no idea how many miles are on the van but 1st lets talk about the oil lite, it is telling u that the engine has less than 10 PSI of oil pressure, this may be the pressure sending unit on the engine is defective, if it does have low oil pressure then severe damage to the engine bearings can result, the click is most likely the contacts in the starter solenoid are burnt, they act up more cold and give the click you hear. I have no idea about the steering issue, without hearing it is almost imposs to diagnose such concerns. In closing I highly recommned that you address the low oil pressure concern ASAP

Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.

try checking the secondary ground wire that comes off the battery see if its loose or corroded might help
