I am sorry for the long wait

does this have or show oil pressure PSI readings in the dash ?

when its reading oil pressure low is there any abnormal noises heard from the engine at all ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No there is no PSI readings on the dash. I haven't noticed any abnormal noises coming from the engine either.
Expert:  ggrote1 replied 1 year ago.

the odds are this issue will be a basic bad oil pressure sensor

if the oil is full and you hear NO abnormal engine noises at all the odds are the oil pressure is fine and the sensor is just not sending the correct oil pressure reading to the computer which replacing the oil pressure switch usually corrects this type of issue
