So what is your question? Are you saying you don't trust the word of your mechanic?

If so, you should go get a second opinion. There's no way I could test your engine myself, but a "Low oil light" needs to be verified with a oil pressure gauge.

If the oil pressure is low, then there's either something clogging the system, the pump is blocked, or the pump is bad.
