Have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical gauge, if all is well, replace the sender unit, start here.

Thank you I will do that, where is the sending unit located? I am almost sure that is bad as the car runs fine does not get hot no oil in the water, no smoke.

It's next to the oil filter, look for a round switch with a single push on wire terminal.
