My oil pressure warning light occasionally light ups and engine warning light is on but the car still runs. It's having a little bit of difficulty when starting. I have to step on the gas pedal for the car to turn on completely. It's like the engine has a hard time breathing.

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

By the way, I forgot to mention that my oil level has been checked and there is no problem with my level.

Check the oil pressure-could be the oil sending unit acting up

I apologize to the readers who might have the same or somewhat related problem. It is a 2006 Chevrolet Optra, not 1996. Thanks.
