2.7l low oil pressure light TSB 083699
I am wondering if any one can confirm for me the following: I got a copy of TSB 083699 regarding the problem with the low oil pressure warning light coming on in the 99 and newer 2.7l equipped intrepids. I have been having this problem with my car. I had a motor in the car that just recently poped a head gasket at 198,000km. The car since I had it (bought at 194,000kms) has had a problem where the oil pressure light flickers at 600 to 500 rpm when the motor has built up some heat. When the old motor let go, I got my hands on a newer motor out of a 2001 that had only 55,000km on it, but it has the same problem where the light flickers at 500 to 600 rpm again with heat in the motor. I replaced the oil pressure switch with a blue streak aftermarket switch and am still having same problem.
Anyway all that said I have now purchased the terminal/wire vent #05017800A that the TSB refers to. From what I have read does this wire get installed to simply act as a heat sync? It does not appear to connect to anything since the pressure switch only has a single wire connection and this goes onto a blank terminal spot.
Has anyone put this on their vehicle and does it really work?
Any insight would be appreciated.
