I Would first suspect that your Oil pressure sending unit is bad. This would be by far more common than actual lack of oil pressure. When you first noticed the problem did the engine make any unusual noise, If not I would start by changing the oil, oil filter and checking the oil pressure sending unit. Also note as to whether all of your other gages are working if not you may just have a bad fuse. If you did actually lose oil pressure at minimum you are looking at removing the oil pan and replacing the oil pump. It could be that the pickup tube on the oil pump has come off. The oil pressure sending Unit is cylindrical and should be threaded into the engine should have two wires going to it if you can not locate it buy the part first so as to have reference as to what it looks like. Make shor you buy it from a store with a good return police so that if you find it not to be the problem you can take it back.

It sounds like if there has not ben a oil change for a while then you might have a plugged up oil screen on the oil pick up tube, You might luck out and just have a bad oil sender,
