If you are getting unusually high or low ( or no ) pressure reading and the engine has not started to become very noisy on the top end then the switch may be going bad. If the low oil pressure reading is indicating an actual lack of oil pressure the engine will heat up quickly and become noisy, lifters and cams first then crank later. Dont push it to that have the unit checked right away to avoid costly repairs. Your vehicle is equipped with OBDII diagnostic computer so a oil light will trigger some kind of trouble code even if it does not prompt the check engine light so have the codes read as well.
