Why does my 2001 chrysler 300m rev on its own and then show the engine oil icon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

is it revving while stopped at an idle or during the drive? You might want to join a forum and mention your issue there. You'll get (I hope) great info there much quicker. Your oil light is usually (I would think always) for oil pressure so I hope your pump isn't shot. Anyways, that's why I would join a 300 forum.

While stopped it will revving n the oil icon stayed blinking until I take of again


Interesting. I know idle air control valves can stick open and cause revving issues. Eventually they go bad and stall and won't run. But it could be something different too but idk. I also don't know how that revving issue ties into the oil light being lit.
