Just a thought.. is it possible that the oil filter collapsed? Would that cause similar symptoms?

I'm glad you walked away from that one. Who would be stupid enough to sell a car with a low oil pressure issue if the fix was easy to do. You would fix it, then sell it.

I am quite sure the curber will be selling it to some single mother or the like. A lot of very bad people hustling cars all over Craigslist.

There are lots of possibilities as discussed above it looks a sensor issue or oil pressure issue but not sure about that. We need to take this vehicle to a garage because without observing cannot identify the issue.
