Default Low Oil Pressure - Stop engine

After a long drive with AC ON when I stop the car I feel like RPM Start fluctuating between 500 to 1500 and shows the error "Low Oil Pressure - Stop engine" and stops the engine. Mostly it happens after I use car running with AC...without AC it rarely comes.

As per my research either the Oil Pressure sensor is culprit or Oil Pan seals need to be change.

Will appreciate any other experiences of you guys tried.

Hi Maorozcod, Yes it is fixed and I am very much glad to tell you because It wasn't easy to diagnose such problem and all online help failed. Any hows here the solution.

Following are the things to be check first which does not require to unscrew a single bolt.

1. PCV Box (Check smoke from the dipstick)
2. Intake Gaskets
3. Air Filter
4. Any leak in air hoses
5. Intake manifold from inside (Should not be filled with oil deposits. )

Now in my case, what I found that due to PCV clogged ETM Air hose, intake was having heavy oil deposits and I saw oil deposits on Engine air holes placed with Air intake.

Anyhow once I finished whole job and then used Complete Fuel system cleaner, all gone now. Moreover sadly if everything is all right above I stated above then finally look for Oil pan seals.
