good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist the warning for low oil pressure comes on when the pressure is below 10 lbs. it could be a bad sender unit on the motor or it might be correct. if it is correct, you need to find out what the failure is. it may be clogged pick up in the pan, oil pump failure or bearings worn out. the first thing I would do is to remove the sender and check the pressure manually. you can rent a tester from a parts store to verify the pressure. I would also get a new sender as well. make sure the oil level is correct Roy

Thank you for your answer, unfortunately I will have to take my car to the dealer, as I know nothing about cars. However, with what you are telling me, at least I will have an idea to match it with what the people at the dealer tell me.
