WARNING OIL PRESSURE CHECK OWNERS MANUAL AND SHUT OFF ENGINE

Hi Everyone, this recently showed up while I was driving. It comes and goes, so I took it for an oil change and it was half a quart low. Picked up the car after the oil change and the OIL Pressure Warning showed up again. Any ideas what it could be?

Thanks

Bad oil pump, bad sensor, clogged pickup tube.

Best thing to do is NOT drive the car and have it checked out.

Thanks guys. I guess I have to bring it in for diagnostic testing. I drove it today and there was no warning. Also checked the oil and it’s still on max level, so no leak.

Doesn't mean the pump isn't done.
