Oil light

Asked by Apr 10, 2016 at 12:05 PM about the 2006 Dodge Charger Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a question. I just got a new oil pressure
sensor put in and my light still pops on. It blinks
really fast this time instead of staying on. It only
does this at slow speeds or stop. My oil level is
also fine. Other than it being annoying should I
worry? I'm planning a road trip and don't want to
break down across the u.s.

If that is the case you may have an oil pump that is getting ready to fail, install a manual gauge on there so you can see what the actual oil pressure is.

Ok so should I not use it for a road trip?

Btw I should mention there is oil around the area I can smell it burning, but the oil level is fine

Sloppy work sounds like it wasn't cleaned properly before the work, I would not take it on any trip until I knew why was causing the flickering light, you don't want to be underway and the engine blow due to a failed oiling system.
