01 Dodge Durango 4.7l.
Very low oil pressure and check gauges light comes on, been happening from first start up. The warmer the engine gets the lower the oil pressure reads.
Really don't want to destroy my engine due to lack of oil. Could this be the oil pump or the oil pressure sensor switch?

Do you have a way to check it mechanically to verify the actual oil pressure?

A mechanical gauge suggestion HemiLonestar is a PLUS good place to start. But a few questions---did this just happen----how many miles on oil---when did you last change it & filter--what type oil are you using----have you checked to see if oil is at proper level---have you been leaking/using oil---what color is the oil---motor temperature hotter then normal---anything blocking air flow thru radiator----is the coolant level filled--is the coolant discolored--is engine covered with oil/coolant---these are some symptoms that could pertain to your issue
