Question 2004 Pt cruiser turbo confusion

What does it mean when the oil pressure light beeps and lights up then it stops then it starts again...this happens every time I press on the breaks and/or when I`m not pressing on the gas and just letting it run???

2004 champagne, 2.4 litr. Turbo...... that's all I know about my car

Welcome to the Forum.

Give us a hint on what you checked, what year of PT, NA or Turbo, where you are from.

What you have told isn't much. Check your oil level.

The oil pressure sending unit is a weak link. Have it checked to see if it is leaking.

Welcome to the forum (you forget that one Bob).

I'd go with two of the answers above. Check your oil level and could be a bad sending unit.

Sorry to bump an old topic with my first post, but this thread is exactly what's going on with my wife's PT (looks like same engine and symptoms).

1) What tools are required to swap this part? Is there a how-to anywhere? Either way, I'll probably use this as an excuse for the missus to get the book on her car :P
2) If I can't get to this for 4-5 days, will she kill her engine (~45-50 minutes and 20 miles total daily, mix of city and highway)?

If it is just a faulty sending unit then it is just sending out the wrong info---so nothing bad will happen just annoying if it is low on oil then that needs to be addressed quickly, I guess if it were really low oil pressure then that too would need addressed but a new oil pump is probably a pain and way big dollars
