My car has 154509 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.
It is possible that debris from the clean up has found its way to the crankcase and thence onto the oil pump pickup screen partially clogging the sump. Also, you want to make sure that the wiring harness to the oil pressure sending unit terminal is tight and secure. Measure the actual oil pressure, using a gauge at the sending unit port, and compare against factory spec. If the pressure is low, you could drop the oil pan and check and see if the pick up screen is partially blocked. If you desire that a certified professional identify the cause of the apparent low oil pressure, by all means, feel free to follow-up with YourMechanic.
