Strange Oil Light Problem

30

Asked by Jun 15, 2015 at 11:43 PM about the 2006 Chrysler Sebring Limited Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2006 Chrysler Sebring 2.7L V6 is the car I am talking about.
The car runs perfectly when it is cold, it still runs fine after it heats up. But, after it
heats up, if I make a stop in D gear, say a red light, for more than 5 seconds, then the
oil light will start flash slightly. If I shift to N gear at that moment, then the light will go
off. Or, once the car back to move again, the light will go off, too. A fact is, more hot
the car, more strong the light flash.
I first thought maybe my oil is too old, I drove 1000 miles only but more than 10
months since last oil change, so I got the oil changed(5W20 by the way). But the
problem did not solve. And I found there some oil around the oil filler cap, seems
leaked out from the cap. But the problem still there.
The current oil level is about 1/5 from min to max, it is a bit low, but should be safe, at
least I can tell some oil was lost. I checked drive way, there ware no oil on the ground
at oil, so the cap seems the only place it can leaks out, but a new cap does not solve
the problem.
Any suggestion?

Could be bad oil pump,or the oil sending unit is bad reading wrong,and not changing oil on a regular bases will make it burn oil.

I don't think it burns oil, the smoke looks good.

Have the oil pressure checked by a mechanic with a guage,this will let you know what is wrong,eather pump or bad oil sending unit.

In case I can get a guage and read by myself, what's the sign for bad pump, and what's for oil sending unit?
