oil pressure light coms on at idel after worm up

Eric :

Hi. What make and model and engine size is this?

Customer:

2000 Dodge intrepid 2.7

Customer:

Hi I am back

Eric :

Do you have an oil pressure gauge, or can you get one?

Customer:

Yes

Customer:

We did change the sending unit

Eric :

You need to install the oil pressure gauge into where the sending unit goes and see what the pressure is manually.

Customer:

That was my thought but i an unable to do thing like that I have to get the gradson to do it

Eric :

Ok. When you have him check, after the gauge is installed get the engine to operating temperature and the oil pressure should be above 25 psi at 3000 rpms.

Customer:

Ok when I can get him to do it I will get back to you. Thank You

Eric :
