Alright. Yesterday, I got an oil change. Turns out I needed an oil sensor (sending sensor or something). Only $10. Changed, oil change done...drive it, runs great.

Today, I start it up. It starts tapping...my car has never tapped before. It goes away after I drive it for a bit, but it still tapped! Also, now whenever I sit at a light in Drive, the oil light comes on. This also never happened before. As soon as I hit the gas, it goes off, but it does come on.

Anyone know what it coulc be? Mind you, I just yesterday got an oil change.

Thanks!

think it'll help if i put more than 5 qts in? (I know that's probably a dumb question)
If your talking about over filling it, do not ever do it. Crank will churn it into foam. What viscosity did they put in ???? 3.3 engines are very happy with 10w30.

That's what I thought. And it's 10w30.

Maybe they have a oil pressure sensor all screwed up. They put a MOPAR sensor in?

My engine "taps" too, but I think it's more like ticking sound coming from injectors or EGR vacuum solenoid.
