Have you tested the actual oil pressure? You may have an internal engine problem or it could electrical.

I'm having the exact same problem with mine. I just had new spark plugs put in, a new distributor cap, and changed the fuel filter with little success. The best thing that's helped so far is putting some Fuel Injector fluid in the gas tank (~4.99 @ grocery store). Good luck!
