Question about 2001 Nissan Altima
It can be 1 of 3 things. 1. Oil is low, refill to the proper level and it is fixed. 2, the Oil Sensor is faulting out, replace sensor (it screws in and out) and it is fixed or 3. The oil pump is going out and you need to have it replaced. You can have this done at a shop where it will cost you a great deal or if yo have the time and patience you can get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle and do the repair your self. If it where a Toyota I would tell you to at least look at the Haynes Manual and see if the Pump is external since it would only have 3 mounting bolts if it where and it a 15 minute fix. At least look at what is involved before you go to a shop with it.

The oil light is on because the pressure is too low. If the level of the oil is ok and the oil filter is new then the oil pump has failed (or is about to) and must be replaced. This is a shop job and it will be expensive.
