Sorry, I went to bed last night, wasn't ignoring you.
What liter size engine?
IF 2.4, verify you have the right oil filter. There were two 2.4 motors one was a single overhead cam the other a DOHC. The filter will screw on, but may be incorrect.
IF it was a 2.7, there was a defect that causing a sludge build up.
This may not be applicable for that year, I'm not positive.
Your going to want to get a gauge reading on the oil pressure, separate from the car. The real oil pressure may be okay, but you need to know this to decide if this is a mechanical problem or a problem with the light/gauge side of it.
