This is an indication of a failing oil pump so yes, unfortunately. Use the Motor Craft filters and the proper oil when this is repaired. Unfortunately, I do not have any info on replacing this pump however, I do know that it is on the front of the engine. i would start by having a trusted tech do what they call a "wet test" meaning they use a old mechanical guage screwed into where the oil pressure sending unit is located to determine the "actuall" pressure. If it has already started knocking at idle, it may have already done irreversible damage to the main bearings and require more extensive repairs. Have him do the test and let me know and will advise from there.
