SOURCE: Oil light comes on and "bings" when the tack shows 1000 rpm.

I have no idea how many miles are on the van but 1st lets talk about the oil lite, it is telling u that the engine has less than 10 PSI of oil pressure, this may be the pressure sending unit on the engine is defective, if it does have low oil pressure then severe damage to the engine bearings can result, the click is most likely the contacts in the starter solenoid are burnt, they act up more cold and give the click you hear. I have no idea about the steering issue, without hearing it is almost imposs to diagnose such concerns. In closing I highly recommned that you address the low oil pressure concern ASAP

SOURCE: Oil Pressure light comes on....

The oil light should come on when the car stalls, this is normal. The stalling isn't, do u have a warranty thru the dealer u purchased it from? Most have at least a 30 day warranty. A 2004 should have included some type of warranty. U should bring it back, and they should correct the problem at no charge if u recently purchased it, and there is some sort of guarantee. Let me know if there is.

SOURCE: engine stutters. wont go above 300o rpm

most likely the exhaust is plugged (cat converter) you can take it most any exhaust shop & they should test it for free.

SOURCE: engine dies in stop and

1999 300M 150,000 Miles

Car dies when coming off acceleration or at idle in traffic or at a stop. I can watch the Tach go to 0 RPM, some times it will restart immediately other times it is hard to start, so far I have always been able to re-start it and Drive on. Does anybody have verified fix for this issue, I have seen posts saying can and crank sensor, throttle body, EGR, and many more ideas... Do not really want to just start replacing parts with the hope that I eventually get a fix. Help...

Where do I find the downstream 02 sensor on a 2004 2.4l seabring


I have no specific model experience but the downstream or diagnostic O2 sensor is generally found screwed into the exhaust system just after the catalytic converter.

Have you had fuel pressure tested, as well as exhaust for possible plugged catalytic converter?

While merging onto the highway when my car hit 3 and 4th gear the engine seemed to "stutter/misfire" during harder acceleration. Check engine light also flashed briefly during hard acceleration. Dur


Could be a transmission problem or something as simple as bad spark plugs.
The engine is under the most load when RPM is low and you are trying to accelerate, such as when it upshifts.
You should have the computer checked for trouble codes and hopefully that will point you in the right direction to test.
If the spark plugs have more than 50,000 miles of wear you might start with replacing them.

Car stutters at 2000 rpm range and has a hard time starting when warm


Well, If you have changed all of the above the only thing left is the cat. converter. If they are stopped up the engine will shut down to protect itself, it can't breathe. Look under car and see the cat. converter? Is it purple? kick it and see if it rattles.

Engine stuttering


have you replaced your O2 censor yet? or changed your air filter lately. I know our avenger is pretty picky we had a dirty air filter once and it seemed like the O2 censor went out because it kept trying to shut off when the idle was lower. a new air filter did a bit for it then we got a censor reader that you plug into the brain box of the car or the cigarette lighter and it told us the O2 was out and our car was doing the low idle thing. after we fixed it no problems.
