Question type: General

My 2001 PT Cruiser has 208,000 miles and recently the oil sensor has been coming on after driving for about 20 minutes. The oil light only comes on while stopped at a light and idling around 900 rpms. Where is the oil sending unit located and how much does this part cost and can I purchase at one of the more popular auto part stores?

What it seems like to me is that when the oil warms up you lose oil pressure. Which could mean that the oil pump is worn out. You may try a higher weight oil to see if it improves, but at over 200,000 miles the oil pump might be the culprit.
