Chrysler PT Cruiser Turbo: I have a 2003 Turbo with 40000 miles.

Customer Question
I have a 2003 Turbo...
I have a 2003 Turbo with 40000 miles. Sometime I start and oil light comes on. If I shut off and start again it does not come on. Recent oil changed and oil level is fine. I am considering a drive of 500 miles and wonder if all is OK.
Thanks -- Dave

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If you don't hear any abnormal noise and especially if the light goes off after restarting the engine the most likely cause is a failed oil sender. The problem may be electrical or the sender membrane may have ruptured and is leaking oil into the electrical connector. If oil pressure was truly low then the light wouldn't stay off after a restart, that is a normal symptom of a failed sender.

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
