Thank you, but not necessary. If you are concerned that there still may be a problem with oil pressure, this is what I recommend (before replacing the sending unit). When you pick up the parts, ask the parts store if they have a mechanical oil pressure gauge used to check oil pressure. Most places will lend them to you. Take it home, remove the old sending unit and the mechanical gauge will screw directly into the same place the sending unit comes out of. Start the vehicle and watch the gauge to see if it drops. If it does, then there is an internal problem. If it doesn't, most likely the sending unit is bad.
The reason I say the sending unit is because you hear no knocking or ticking from the engine. Very low or no oil pressure would result in a lot of noise from the engine. If you hear knocking or ticking, then shut it down and let me know.
Take care and good luck.
