SOURCE: oil pressure guage dropping
Sounds like the sensor is failing.Have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gage to confirm. A new sensor or wiring repair is allot cheaper then a new engine!!

Sounds like the engine bearings (crankshaft) are worn. Try using a heavyer grade of oil, unless you want to rebuild the engine.

SOURCE: Fluctuating oil pressure gauge.
Two quarts is about half the capacity. The pump was probably starved of lubrication and is failing.
If that's not expensive enough, you may now have a problem with a damaged engine. You may want to just put that money into a new vehicle.
I don't think the car would have enough power in its present condition to get high enough to reach a cliff, and driving it into a lake would not be environmentally sound. Besides, the fine would not be worth it.
The cheapest and easiest maintainance that anyone can do on a car to avoid expensive repairs is still checking the oil ever 1000 miles (filling if necessary!) and changing it every 3000.

poor oil circulation may need either more oil or a new oil pump, any other symptoms?
It could just be the pressure sensor, as this is cheaper get it looked at first.
Hope this helps

It sure sounds like the oil sending unit is at fault,now sometimes,not always,the oil sending unit will seep oil or leak oil if they go bad,but like I said,not always,change the unit,and the oil and filter just for precaution.
