OIL PRESSURE LIGHT PROBLEM

1998 Plymouth Voyager

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 116, 98 miles

Recently I noticed that the oil pressure warning light will come on and chime when I am making a turn or driving downhill. It only stays on for a second to two and goes out immediately upon level ground or acceleration. Oil Change just done, but problem persists, though with seeming less frequency right now. Oil was dirty upon change, with car being bought used. What are the range of problems/solutions? No problem running straight, flat or at high speeds.

You can have the oil pressure checked with a separate gauge, or for the little cost put in a new oil sending unit. Most often it is a faulty sender.
