2004 Dodge Status 2.7 oil light keeps comming on. I just bought the car wasn't on. I decided to change the oil I usewd the right motor oil and filter. But after I took it out for a short drive I niticed the oil light came on light and keept getting brighter. I checked the oil light sending unit and it was leeking, so I cleaned the mess and installed one fron Discount auto parts. It was gone. The next day in the afternoon, it came on again. I looked in the valve cover when I bought the car it looked clean and no smoke. No smoke at rear as well. It drives fine. I did notice that after it set the first time the next morning when cold it was off, as soon as it warmed up it was on again. This was befor I replaced the oil sending light unit switch. Anyone out their that can help. :crying: :confused:

good luck, your best bet is to not change the oil again. those motors are notoroius for that. did you fill the oil filter before you changed it?
