Chevrolet Impala Problem

Oil pressure low stop engine light and the annoying chime that goes with it, started slow, but now is on constantly
The engine light was on and the car seemed to be running fine. That is when i went in to hook it up to the diagnostic machine. We found out it was the oil pressure sensor. You do have to order the part through GM, but it is only $10.00. my husband fixed it in about 10 min.

Car running normal. Check Engine light on, not gas cap or fuel type. Also not going into 3 cyl mode. After a lot of internet research and codes ran by mechanics advised to change oil pressure sensor, I bought one and will install very soon. I had car only three weeks so this was a scary scenario but I am confident that is the problem and will be able to fix for $30 if I install myself.
I have the same issue with my 2010 Chevy impala. Low pressure light comes on bells rings usually when oil is hot or on incline hill. my husband will change the oil pressure sensor. I was also told an oil additive will help as well.

Check light came on. I checked the diagnostic code and it showed engine oil pressure system. I have not fixed the problem yet, but I will attempt the repair myself.

I have taken my 07 chevy in for oil filter housing unit to be replaced and less than 24 hrs of getting car back the engine light is on. Technician tells me that oil pressure sensor looks like it went out due to sensor are very sensitive on gm model cars.
