LOW ENGINE OIL PRESSURE

1999 Chevrolet Express • V8 2WD Automatic • 111,000 miles

Hi guys, I have a 1999 chevy express van 3500 v8 5.7 and my problem is that I have low oil pressure while on neutral but even worse if im stopped at a traffic light. But if I speed up and the oil pressure goes up and once in a blue it might shut off while driving. I was thinking I could have a bad engine oil pump but then again im not a pro, can you help?

Oil pressure: Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge, if normal replace the oil pressure switch. If abnormal could mean oil pump and engine bearing.
