Oil light comes when I run it for a while at a stop and goes out when I drive it. Change 2 senders and still does the same thing. Can you help me?

Good morning,

You need to have a manual oil pressure test done to verify that you have low oil pressure. The sensors sound like they are working.

OIL PRESSURE

At Curb Idle Speed* .................... 25 kPa (4 psi)
At 3000 rpm .................... 170 - 550 kPa (25 - 80 psi)

CAUTION:
*If pressure is "zero": at curb idle, do not run the engine at 3,000 RPMs.

This could be the oil pump itself failing. I attached the procedure for replacing the oil pump below. It is very involved as the front of the motor has to be stripped down of all components.
