Question about Toyota Pickup
First check your oil level. If you do not have enough oil, there will not be oil pressure. Depending on how long you drove it with insufficient oil (most likely) you may have caused damage. Hopefully, you stopped driving as soon as the oil light came on.
Owner's manual has service schedule, the type of recommended oil, the filter required and how to check the oil level. If there is not enough oil, and haven't had the recommended service. Do it now. Ask them to find any oil leaks you may have. If they find none, keep an eye on the oil level until you know why. Older cars most people check all fluids every time they fill the gas tank. It's just cheap insurance for preventing the unexpected at the least convenient moment. Good luck.

these cars have problems with bad oil pressure warning switches you may have someone put an oil pressure gauge on the car and make sure your pressure is within spec and go ahead and change the sender if it checks out please rate -jeff

The oil pressure sending unit is a sensor with an internal diaphragm, if the internal diaphragm is damaged , or the line to the diaphragm is blocked you can get this kind of fluctuation on the oil pressure gauge.
The oil pressure value must be read by installing a mechanical gauge near to the oil pressure switch and checking the pressure.
If pressure is ok, replace the sending unit. If there is a real pressure drop, check the oil pump.
If you still get fluctualtion after replacing the oil pressure sending unit, replace the oil pressure gauge.
