Default 07 PT Cruiser

Hello,

Just had front crankshaft seal and cam shaft seal replaced at shop. Caused the oil pressure light to go off. Shop replaced the oil pressure switch. Now oil light comes on at idle and off with acceleration. Shop is at loss for problem.

Any ideas of what could be wrong.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Carol

Welcome to the forum

How many miles on your PT? While they had the area torn apart, did they replace the timing belt or any other components in that area?

The shop can remove the pressure switch and hook up a manual pressure gauge to test the oil pump pressure, there are specs that it should meet at idle and at speed. Your shop should know this procedure.

When you get a chance, please go to Welcome New PT Cruiser Members - PT Cruiser Forum and create an intro thread telling us a little about yourself and your PT

Tell the shop to replace the oil pressure switch again, new ones can be bad.
Also check to see if your oil is full.

90k. they did replace the timing belt. They say the oil pressure drops to zero at idle and are unsure why. They plan on taking to Chrysler dealer on their dime to have checked but was hoping someone would have an idea.

Thanks for your reply

This is from the Service Manual:



Prior to this work, did your PT have any problems with the oil light?

Hopefully the dealership will figure it out, especially since the other shop is paying for it.

I suspect a faulty OPS too. The 2.4 is a very hearty engine when properly maintained.
