when i am not moving in my car they oil pressure gauge goes down all the way to the red area and that is when the check gages light comes on. As soon as i accelerate the light goes off and the gauge goes up. I checked the oil and it seems fine

May be time for a rebuild or replacement motor.

i checked it out and the oil pressure is running fine. I think it may just be a bad sensor.
