I have a 1997 chevy Cavalier with a 2.2 My oil light has been coming on for a while after it warms up and only when it is idleing. It has enough oil in it the dip stick says it is full. But 2 days ago it has started dieing on me after it warms up. When it cools back down I can drive it agin till it gets warm again. Could this be the oil pressure switch? If not, what could this be?

I changed the oil pressure switch but did not solve the problem. What else could this be?

Use an analog gage in place of the oil sending unit. Double check the oil pressure. Do think the engine is siezing, when it warms up? What is the temp gage showing? When it stalls, can you turn the cranshaft by hand? How long since a tune-up? Any applicable codes?
