Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Chrysler Intrepid 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 113, 00 miles
I took my car in for it's regular oil change. Beginning exactly since that time, after the engine has been running for about 7 or 8 minutes, the oil pressure light comes on when the car idles at a traffic light.
The oil pressure light goes out when the engine revs are high enough.
Before the engine gets too hot, keeping the revs at about 1000 rpm is enough to keep the light off.
But as it gets hotter, the revs have to be kept at 1500 to keep the oil pressure light off.
Ideas? Bad oil? Bad oil filter?
have the same problem?
