Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring
I had just left home, maybe 5 minutes of driving, when I got to stop sign oil pressure light came on. When I went to give it gas to leave stop sign I had no power, almost like I was in neutral. Any ideas??!! Ive read a lot about the oil pressure switch/sensor but a lot of folks are saying that changing it didn't help.... any other ideas?

Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.

2.7 ? This motor has oil problems if not changed every 3000 miles. Put a chrysler filter on it and the correct weight of oil, never use a fram oil filter.

Probably a vacuum line loose or broken. With the engine running, wiggle all hoses around under the hood, and listen for a hiss.

A fast flash at the dash indicates there is a bulb out somewhere.
Have someone check all the bulbs outside while you try the brakes, lights and turn signals.

Check the oil level, if the oi level is good. Then it's a good chance that the oil pressure sensor may have gone bad and needs to be replaced as long as there is no damaging noise coming from the engine.
It is very hard to try to reach the sensor from under the car. Removed the battery, air box, also moved the fuse box aside just a bit to get more room to work (not necessary though if you have long arms). After removing/moving those parts you'll have plenty of room to work with. Simply disconnect the electric connection and remove the sensor with a socket. The part is $11.99 at Auto Zone with a lifetime warranty! (not just a dealer only item :]) The socket isn't a special socket its just a 27mm deep well. I hope this helps someone, overall the job isn't hard so no need to pay anyone to do it for you! Good luck, the oil pressure sending unit located high on the back of the engine block.
