I have a 2004 Dodge Intrepid, and had problems with the oil light coming on. I would drive about 20 minutes, and when I came to a full stop, the oil light came on. When I started driving, the light went off. That happened for a few weeks, and my mechanic installed a new sensor, but it continued. Then when I went to go to a dealer, the light did not come on. I drove up north and back, and the light has not come back on. It is very weird.

This is all very typical of the Chrysler owner experience.
The 2.7 is a Chrysler-designed motor, made up of almost all Mitsubishi components.
The Intrepid never came with a 2.4L, so I don't know what that person was talking about.

The same thing happened to me. Have been trying to figure out what's wrong, as the oil light started coming on again when I was stopped, and went out when I started driving. There is a TSB #08-36-99, and it says to install an oil pressure switch wire connector (part #05017800aa). I'm going to talk with my mechanic about this, and find out if it works.

I have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring with a 2.7 liter engine. Even though it's 11 years old, it only has 39,500 miles. So when I started getting a low oil pressure light at idle (only after fully warmed up) I figured it had to be an indication problem.
First I changed the switch, but no fix. Then I became concerned and decided to check the pressure, which ended up being fine (minimum is 5 PSI at idle, I got about 10 PSI). I then removed the dummy plug (dart) from the electrical connector without removing the connector itself. I just grabbed it with my finger nails and popped it right out. The hardest part was getting the 3 bolts out to remove the heat shield at the back of the engine block.
If it weren't for the heat shield, this wouldn't have required anything other than jacking up the car to resolve. Amazing that something so simple corrected the problem.
Putting the actual vent/wire in the connector wouldn't hurt, but with the heat shield covering the connector, it should stay fairly clean.

I have a 2004 Dodge Intrepid with a 2.7.
The oil light would come at idle. Saw this post, removed the small brown plug and now it works fine. Thanks, you saved me 45.00.

I have a 2004 Intrepid and it stalls. I am scared to drive it. It stalls at the most dangerous times, and no one seems to know what is wrong with it.
