Hi, Tom; Regarding your previous post: Have you actually CHECKED the oil level? If it IS full, the OPS (oil pressure sensor) is quite inexpensive and usually easy to replace. When was the oil and filter last replaced? With that said, it sure sounds to me that it is low on oil. Refer back to my previous reply: DO NOT drive the car unless the oil level is full.

Hi again, Tom; I want to apologize if I sounded condescending. I'm just a volunteer, here, and will be happy to help in any way I can, but you gotta help me, too. Please, tell us the year and engine size of your Chrys. 300. Ya gotta meet us 1/2 way. LOL. The sloshing of the oil in the pan, the OPS light and chime going off is telling you that you need oil. Think of oil as the blood in your body. It's VERY important. I'll be more than happy to tell you where and how to check your oil level and what weight oil to use if you'll at least meet me 1/2 way. Happy
I'll check back in a couple of hours.
