I have a 2002 impala that seems to have one thing happen after the other. For quite a while the low oil pressure light was blinking even after we changed the oil. Now a red light is flashing about the engine. My husband is not a mechanic and said he is pretty sure it needs a new oil pump. I called around to get prices on that and a car shop told me that he thinks it sounds more like we just need to replace the oil pressure switch which will be a lot cheaper. I googled symptoms of it and it sounds about right but how can we know for sure without having to keep towing it back and forth. We haven't noticed any oil leaks
