Oil light coming on on 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan

I have replaced the timing chain, sprockets, and oil pump. My oil light was coming on before this, changed pump since I was in there. I thought it was the oil pressure switch so I changed it and still getting the light. I removed the oil pressure switch and checked pressure it was around 50psi so assuming it pumping. I have a rod bearing raising hell which is next fun project. Would like to get this fixed to at least run around town until it finally dies. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

wow, better get the crank kit now before you ruin the motor. if the bearing is hammering, then the oil light will come on and bet that the crank is damaged. Roy

On higher-mileage vehicles, engine oil leaks from the valve covers and front crankshaft seal are common.
