When I drive for thirty minutes on the highway and I get off my exit, my oil light comes on and the car shuts off.
If I drive on local roads for twenty minutes or so, the oil pressure starts to go down and the car shuts off. Any idea why?

    have the oil pressure tested with a mechanical gauge. IF it still reads low your oil pump is probably failing

    Thanks, but how can I even drive my car if the oil pumps not working properly?
