Have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge. If it's okay, suspect a defective sending unit, especially if it is leaking.

You really need to list the engine size when discussing engine problems. Six pounds of oil pressure is WAY too low at idle for most engines but is perfectly normal for the 3.0L engine.
