Their are two different warnings. the first says "Low Oil Pressure" which means that the oil pressure stayed low for too long. The other warning says "Oil Pressure Sensor" which means that the computer is getting a Bogus signal from the Oil Pressure Sensor. Mine gives me the second warning from time to time but I haven't had the time to change the $7.00 sensor.

I run 15W 40 and change it as soon as the second green light goes out.
