Have you checked the oil to make sure it is correct on the stick? If it is up where it should be you probably have a sending unit going bad. A code reader should be able to tell you this.

If you run the engine out of oil you will destroy the engine. Same thing goes if you loose all oil pressure. Be sure and have this problem checked out as it could cost you a bundle.
