Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2001 Sebring w/130,000 miles ,oil light coming
on during idling after I've driven car for hour or so.
No oil leaks at all. Just had oil change too. I'm
hoping the fix isn't too expensive but doable ??!!
I hear people saying use synthetic oil,not sure of
difference?? Any solutions for me?

Keep using the oil you have ben using, maybe go to a high mileage oil, but hopefully all this is, is just an oil pressure sending unit that needs changing out. To know for sure the oil pressure would need to be verified with a mechanical gauge.
