Hi Welcome to the Forums,

You first have get a mechanical oil pressure gage to test the actual pressure.

Some of the part stores will rent them. This will determine if you have a bad sender or do have poor oil pressure.

It's best not drive it till you know whats up.... you could waste the engine.

What is the mileage and has the lack of oil changes happen before?
