Hello and welcome to Just Answer! I would be more than happy to assist you today. Did this just happen after the oil change? Any check engine lights on the dash? When the engine is running?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
YES IT WAS BEFORE CHANGING OIL AND CHECK ENGINE FAULT IS COMING ON DASHBORD
Expert:  DR.Cummins replied 6 years ago.
Ok recheck the oil level and make sure it is correct as this will make air in the system and the sensor will not read correct. If the level is not over full check the oil press with a manual gauge if you have pressure replace the sensor. Take the reading for the oil press at the sensor hole ( remove sensor and take reading)

u want me to replace sensor or after taking reading
Expert:  DR.Cummins replied 6 years ago.
Well as a rule of thumb with oil pressure you always verify that you have it, before replacing, You can always just replace it, too You have the check engine lights, But verify the oil level is correct also as this will throw off the sensor, The sensor part number for your engine is(NNN) NNN-NNNN

i just put in around 40 litres
Expert:  DR.Cummins replied 6 years ago.
check the stick again, did you fill the filter before you installed it,

Total Lubricating Oil System Capacity Including Filter:

Automotive and Industrial45.4 liters [12 gal]
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes i put it around 2 liter
Expert:  DR.Cummins replied 6 years ago.
ok, i just gave you the spec for the engine, 45 liters total capacity, recheck the stick and add some if needed you should still have oil pressure with the 42 in it. i just wanted to make sure you did not overfill the engine. I have seen it many times and the sensor will not read.
