Your oil sensor may be faulty, or your may have a leak since you said the fluid level is okay.

The oil light comes on when the car gets warmed up and is in idle, about 600rpm. Any slight increase in rpms and the light goes out. Oil level is OK. The car has 166,500 miles. Should I worry about this?

YES. You dont say what engine you have? but the 2.7L HAS LOTS OF PROBLEMS. there were some problems with oil sending units for these cars, oil sludging, and timing chain. Have the oil pressure verified with a mechanicl oil pressure gauge, if its low, think about trading it in on another car.

I own a Chrysler Sebring , 2007 ,2.4L , 55000 miles , ... let say I stopped at a signal on a uphill road . ( about 50 deg. hill ).. when I want to go , release the brakes, the car goes backwards ... i...

It depends on the car. If the car has alot of load on the transmission going uphill, it can make the car gobackwards. Many reasons. Weight, what type of car etc. It isnt something I'd worry too much about. Just have your foot on the brake when you stop

2004 chrysler sebring idle speed is too slow. HOw

why do you want your rpms higher while idling? you don't want them high because your gas bill will reflect that. slow shouldn't matter but if it's dying while on idle it could either be your mass air flow sensor or your fuel filter being clogged

Oil light is on

May be bad oil pressure sending unit. Best way to check is to connect a mechanical oil pressure guage to engine and check pressures when engine is warm. Should be no lower than 40 psi at idle when warm, no higher than 70 psi at 2000 rpm.

01 chevy cavalier: oil light coming on when car is stopping

Could be that your Oil pump is getting clogged or may not be fuctioning properly. Isnt getting enough power while at a low idle because its clogged.... When your stopped or in your driveway with the light on put your car in neutral and set the parking break and rev the motor up to 2200 RPM's and see if the light turns off.. If i does then that is most likely your problem.

Warm up

The high idle is caused by the choke and the high idle on the carb. It is working normal and you do won't to warm up this motor before going. When it is warm and you hit the gas it activates the choke pull off to bring the idle to normal. Your mechanic is used to fuel injection that will control the fuel/air mix according to temp. I still let my injected cars warm up so the oil can thin a little. If you jump on the highway with cold thick oil it can all wind up in the to of the motor.
