problem #1

Feb 042003

Intrepid 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 53,000 miles
While driving oil pressure light illuminated on the dashboard followed by unwanted deceleration. Vehicle was taken to the dealership, who indicated that oil pressure sensor failed, and needed to be replaced. The sensor was replaced, the engine was flushed, and an oil change performed. The failure recurred. Dealership then replaced the oil pump. The unwanted deceleration recurred without the oil light coming on, and vehicle lost oil pressure. Dealership replaced the timing belt, and gear shift. Also, had to drop the oil pan to check for sludge in the engine.
