B4 we blame the oil pressure u should check the oil prerssure with a oil pressure gauge installed to the engine to compare the both readings if the readin is the same as ur car oil press gauge then u should check other things by changing the grades of oil to see if the problem is the internal wear! Just a reminder high milage car does require thicker oil otherwise it brakes down in the hot summer
