Low oil pressure, help

I am on my way to work and the low oil pressure buzzer keeps going off. The needle stays normal until I slow down at a light then drops to L. If I barely give it throttle it jumps back up. I use the Torque app and it is saying at a idle that hpop is reading 578-597. Any info please. Thanks

Try checking the sensor. Also what filter and cap are you using for your oil?

I am using the factory cap that has always been on there (black) and I use Ford filters, changed oil approx 2500k ago. Will try and look up where sensor is.

I usually start by replacing the sensor and the pigtail, you may find it's leaking internally and has contaminated the connector. Very common for these to go bad

I've gotten burned by not replacing the connector too
