Hello, my name is***** can be caused by a few things. You need to first find where the leak is coming from. Most of the time the oil pressure sensor fails and leaks which will cause these things to occur. It is also possible that the leak started from someplace else and the low oil level is causing the oil pressure light to come on. The main thing is finding the leak. If it was the oil pump it would not typically leak externally.
