As long as the oil is being maintained to the proper level, to really know what is going on is to check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. There should be at leas 20 lbs. oil pressure at idle. If so then change out the oil sending unit.

I agree with real fast, definitely check the oil sending unit / oil pressure switch.
