Hi,

 

This is Eric.

 

If the oil level is correct, you need to have an oil pressure test done ASAP. Low oil pressure may simply be a faulty oil pressure sensor, but it may be a failing oil pump or oil sludge which is restricting oil flow thru the oil passages, either of which can result in catastrophic engine failure.
