I have driven over 500 miles with this issue. The vehicle seems to run fine. Is

Could be the sensor, also may be the passage way that the sensor is screwed into is somewhat plugged up restricting oil flow to the sensor. Should just get it verified.

"engine oil pressure too low" could be very serious or nothing at all. Get it checked.
