Oil pressure light

Well it started flickering last week. Then a few days ago it went from flickering to staying on at an idle or traffic light. Today it started its flickering, stayed on and when I put it on the Xway at 70mph it went out and did not flicker again. Now it is off. there is a slight oil leak off the plug or the oil pan. not sure where or it could be the oil pressure sending unit. The oil is at level and quite dirty. I will have it changed tomorrow with 20w 50. I hope the oil change will solve the problem. I cant afford to replace the oil pump right now, which I understand could be the problem, What does it sound like to you guys?
Life is like a roll of toilet paper...the closer you get to the end the faster it goes. So drive an E30 everyday

Look at the oil pressure sender. If it's leaking oil around the crimp between the metal case and the phenolic body with the wiring connector, the switch is shot.
