    Just to correct your question, it is not an oil leveller pressure switch. It is a oil level sensor that alerts the driver of a low oil level condition in the oil pan. A very useful device to have especially when you are burning oil between changes or your 10 minute quick oil change man does not put enough or any oil in your motor...

    I'm sure you checked your oil first, right? If so, and the oil level is okay, it could be either one (pressure switch or pump). Also, it could be an oil sensor. You can go to an Auto Zone if you have those where you live, and get a diagnostics for free. In addition, your vehicle probably has those secret light codes on the dash, which if you know the code you can find the exact problem. Check out Auto Zone or Checker Auto. They are real helpful.
