Hi there the same thing happened to me, the problem is caused by on of the following: 1. the crank bearings are worn out that causes the engine oil to leak from them and cause the pressure drop (now we are assuming that the oil pressure sensor is working fine) 2. the crank is defected, i.e worn out in the areas where the main bearings are seated and thus must be replaced with a new also the crank bearing must be changed with the same time also check the engine oil type that you are using because it is probably cased the damage to your engine hope i helped
