your oil pressure is lower when the vehicle is idling, could be low do to lack of oil, when was the last time the oil was changed? could also be fuel in the oil. any other problems? I've also had this problem in a 1998 Stratus, and the oil is not low. I'm suspecting the oil pump is going bad, but I haven't looked in the manual yet to find where it is/what it runs off of. -jb9081
