Default P0522-0523

Ok car started to stall on the thruway today, I recently had the camshaft sensro fixed 6 months ago. Also had oil pressure switch and oil pan gasket fixed in the last 1 1/2yrs. The mechanic said that the code indicated low oil but the oil levels were fine. So he said he reset the computer and the OBD light is not on and it is running fine. I'm wondering if I should have him take a look at the oil pressure switch just to make sure.

Don't know if you can take a look at the switch and see if anything is wrong. There has been quite a few owners with problems and it turned out to be the switch. Always use MOPAR/Chrysler parts and the oil pressure switch isn't expensive. Should be a snap for the mechanic to change it out.

Oil pressure switch is a problem area. I have the same problem. It comes on occasionally when I start the car. If I shut it off and restart it's fine.

I figure that running 0w30 synthetic for the oil might have something to do with it so I don't worry about it. When it's warm I might try another sensor.

Right now I'm fighting with a bad radiator fan code. That will be a pain. Wish me luck!

Apparently the oil code was an old stored code , so I got the oil changed and when they started the car the code for the camshaft sensor came on. Since it was replaced in sept they put it a new one free of charge. So we shall see if anything new happens.

If your not going to the dealer, chances are the mechanic is using after-market sensors and that's why it isn't lasting very long. Our PT's don't like store bought sensors and only Chrysler/MOPAR electrical parts are the only things you should use.
