I assume that as you have the digital dash, that there is only an oil pressure warning light and no gauge.

When you start the car when it is cold and at idle, does the light come on or only after the engine has reached operating temp?

If you have oil pressure when cold and then loose it when the engine is warmed up, I would say that your bottom end is stuffed (mains).

Main bearings, oil pump should be OK if its not full of metal.

Engine out to do it. Main Bearings etc, possible crank regrind, gaskets etc.

May as well do a full rebuild or replace it with a know good engine.

Well shes back from the trusty ol' mechanic again and he believed it was the oil he put in, being too thin.

Replaced filters and new thicker oil.. lets see how we go.
