If there is adequate oil but oil pressure is low, that means either the oil pump is not working, there is a blockage, the oil pressure warning light is malfunctioning, or there is lots of wear in the engine bearings. To gain some insight into what has happened, the diagnostic trouble codes that have been stored (inasmuch as the check engine light is on) should be downloaded using a scan tool. Once the mechanic reads those codes and performs some basic tests, the mechanic can definitely tell you what has happened. If you desire that diagnostic, the recommended service is a no start diagnostic. Please let us know if you have further concerns or questions as we are always here to help you.
