the oil level sensor could be causing the problem, is the check engine light on? if it is i would get a diagnostic to see what the trouble codes are.

Hello , when does the oil light come on?? If it comes on while you are sitting at an idle , chances are good that you need a new oil pressure switch , witch is most likely next to or very close to the oil filter itself in the front of the engine block..

Usually when oil light comes on at idle and goes off at higher rpm's, the problem is worn main crankshaft bearings, but could also be a weak oil pump.
