Same problem with my '95 Altima 2.4 that has 183.5K on it. The engine is worn out and other than rebuilding it, there's no "repair" says my pro mechanic who did a manual oil pressure test on my car; 3-5 lbs at idle, 15 lbs at high rev :( He advised drain my current oil (10w30) put a qt of Rislone in (cleaner) go with heavier oil 10w40 (increases pressure) and run for 500 miles. At 500 miles change oil/filter, add 1 qt of Lucas high mileage additive and stay with the 10w40. Hopefully the Rislone will open up plugged oil venues giving some pressure back? Don't know yet. May have to add "honey" oil to make it all thicker. Start shopping he said but for awhile I can drive locally, occasional freeway - NO long distance or heavy acceleration! When she starts knocking, she's dead. Get your oil pressure manually checked by a qualified mechanic right away and see where you stand first! I'm retired so don't have to commute - lucky me for the time being! Too bad my Altima GXE is crapping out, best car I've ever owned!! Good luck to you!!

The oil light means you have low oil pressure but not necessarily low oil.
Low oil pressure can lead to serious engine problems and should be fixed right away.
