    low oil pressure is very bad but if the car drives fine than it might be your oil pressure sensor( the plug in near your oil filter).Mine would always read very wierd, but once I replaced mine I was getting the 60-90 PSI ratings

    it is probably the oil pressure sending unit. every now and then, typically under light load at lower rpms 1000-1300 mine will start to dance. it will go from 20-60-20-60-20-60-20-60. at any other rpm its just fine.
