  1. Assuming you are not hearing any strange knocking sounds coming from the engine, which would be a failed oil pump.

    Most common cause would be a failing/failed oil pressure sending unit. If you have an oil pressure gauge you can remove the sending unit and attach the pressure gauge at that port. An engine requires 10 psi of pressure at each 1,000 rpm. So 3,000 rpm you would need a minimum of 30 psi and so forth.

    Most likely replacing the the oil pressure sending unit will fix your problem right away.
