SOURCE: oil pressure switch
Pressure switch is usually located near the oil filter and generally has two wires on it. Best way to check it is by putting a manual oil pressure gauge in it's place and reading actual oil pressure. If your symptoms are no oil pressure reading or abnormal readings, with no tapping noises (or worse) from engine then it likely is the switch. Most require a special socket to remove but the sending units are not terribly expensive.

The oil pressure sending unit is located behind the oil filter, Threaded into an aluminunm housing. It has wiring that plugs into the sending unit. The oil filter has to be removed and you will need a deep well socket and a 6 inch extension. Change the oil and the sending unit together.

You can remove it WITHOUT REMOVING THE MOTOR. It's not that hard, I was able to put in a new clutch system within 8 hours. Here is pretty much what you have to do:
When looking at the engine after lifting the hood, you need to put a jack under the motor and if you have it, either another jack under the trans or what works MUCH easier is an Engine hoist.
Disassemble the motor mount on the right side of the engine compartment (When looking at it from the front of the car. Remove the tire, remove the brake pad and disc rotor from the assembly and pull the nut that is holding the drive shaft in place. You can then just tap it with a hammer until you release the shaft from the hub assembly. (You know that hunk of steel or metal that your wheel studs stick out from.) You can then undo the bolts around the transmission, then use the jack to lower the motor until the trans just clears the wheel well.
You slide it out with either the jack or use the engine hoist ( I WOULD PREFER TO USE THE SECOND JACK TO SLIDE THE TRANNY RIGHT OUT OF THE WHEEL WELL)
Then use the Hoist when trying to line it back up. Put everything back the way you removed it and there we go.
firstname.lastname@example.org (You can message me if you have anymore questions.)
I HAVE A NINETY ONE THAT I REPLACED THE CLUTCH IN SO THAT WOULD BE THE EASIEST WAY TO MY KNOWLEDGE.
