Chrysler Pacifica: What is the problem when my oil light comes

This answer was rated:

What is the problem when my oil light comes on regularly on my 2004 chrysler pacifica?
Hello and thank you for trusting me with your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your problem. This is usually caused by a bad oil pressure sending unit, so for the price I would go ahead and change that out and see if it helps. If this does not help I would get a oil pressure reading too be sure the pressure is not dropping off for some reason, if you have a repair shop do the sending unit they could actually do this at the same time.

'Please let me know if you have more questions or if there is anything else I can do to help. Thanks.

How long can I continue to drive with this issue?

also what would be the other possible problems?


so the oil pressure sending unit would be the first course of action?


Is there a diagnostic code that would detect this problem?

The oil pressure sending unit on this vehicle fail all the time so yes it would be my first line of action, if the problem continues the problem would have to be either the engine is loosing oil pressure or there is a wiring issue to the oil pressure sending unit, either of these 2 are very common.

what should be a range of cost for this replacement?

To replace the sending unit I am estimalting the cost for parts and labor to be in the 120.00 area.
