The oil light on my 96 dodge van will come on while driving, and the pressure drops to zero. What can I try short of dropping the oil pan to correct this? If I shut off the engine and restart it the problem stops for a short while.

Have the pressure checked manually first.

Could be a clogged pick up screen from sludge from lack of maintenance/ could be failed pump or bad bearings.
