So here we go for my 2nd forum post ever lol

I just purchased my 07 Nitro SXT 4wd from a previous owner... and today my oil light came on.. but only when my rpms dropped below 1000 h once its over 1000rpms it turns off...I just replaced the battery today also bcuz I took it to get tested n it was weak. Does this sound like more of a oil pump or oil filter/pressure problem?

I swear i have bad luck with cars >_<

The pressure switch is right above the filter.

Ok so I forgot to give an update... I replaced the oil pressure sensorþswitch and the oil light problem went away... thank gawd... best $13 fix ever. Next is to fix either my mass air flow sensor or fuel pump.. and find out which one is causing my car to chug when giving it gas.
