Oil Light (Wire/Vent Installation Help)
Hello fellow Intrepid-ites!
I have a 1999 Intrepid with a 2.7 and 111,000 miles. A few months ago my oil light started to flickr on at stop lights, etc. A couple days later after driving about 150 miles I parked the car and turned it off. When I turned it back on again, the whole engine started shaking and the RPM gauge kept going up and down- I shut it off and tried again, same thing. The car did manage to drive at about 10 mph, and then it went back to normal (and stopped shaking) after a mile or so. It hasn't happened this badly since but my oil light still flickered on at stoplights and once in a while I get a rough idle at startup.
So after reading all the topics on this subject I got my pressure switch/sender replaced yesterday. However I got an oil change today and now the oil light stays on constant whenever the engine goes underneath 1000 RPM. I think I'll get the 5017800AA Wire/Vent thing and see if that helps after installing it- I was curious if there's any way I can make this part myself? Based on what I've heard it's 18 AWG wire attached to...what?
Also, how about installing the wire itself? I'm in no way a mechanic but is it relatively easy to do? I didn't see any diagrams for the TSB but if anyone has one I'd really appreciate it!
