    Default Easiest would be the sensor

    and that is the usual culprit. Also check the wire connection to there.

    Or is it only during the first seconds when engine is started?
    If so, go to my page below and then go to E32fixes.com
    There is something written with pics.
    Look for low oil pressure fix. Oil canister must be repaired.

    Have him check the condition of the oil and if he drains it look at the filter.
