I changed the oil pressure sensor cause it was leaking. Cleaned the connector of remaining oil. Problem went away for about an hour then it came back. It seems as though the idle is to low, could this be? What is the proper idle in and out of gear? Could it be asociated with the iac valve? I would appreciate any info you have to give. I use synthetic oil and chang it every 3000 miles. I take very good care of the care and have no other issues until now

Are you saying the oil pressure switch is still leaking or that you change the switch because it was leaking AND the oil light flickered?

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.
