    I have a chrylser sebring 2001 and my oil light comes on when i am in idle mode with my car. I heard there was a recall on these engines and its either one of two things (1) the oil sensor needs replaced (2) my engine is going. Does anyone have any common complaints with this car?

Slight metal shavings are in oil & minor oil sludge in 2001 chrysler sebring v6 2.7 engine & has random starting failure. Is it worth it to pay high price to replace water pump and timing kit?


i would say the metal is from the bearings. a timing chain would be a waste of effort at this point. if you get a used engine with 70000 miles or more, i would replace the water pump and probly the timing chain.if you get later model engine the flywheel and camshaft gear will have to be changed or it wont run.

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.

Oil sending unit on 2004 chrysler sebring V6


Should be located close to the oil filter. It will screw in like a spark plug. It has a harness plug. Easy to change, save yourself $70 in labor. You will need a fairly large wrench to remove
