oil level or..oil pump KAPOUT !!

no on oil pump,if it was bad,you would know it.

its low oil, when you make a turn or stop inertia pushes it to one side of the engine and it doesnt register on the sending unit. keep an eye on the oil level because oil starvation can very well damage your engine, especially when going around a long curve like a highway exit ramp.
