One of the reasons that your check gauge light comes on is if your OIL PRESSURE is TOO LOW ( you can have plenty of oil but if your oil pump has failed you won't have enough oil pressure , your gauge actually shows oil pressure , it's not an indication of oil level ) If your engine is clattering , DO NOT RUN THE ENGINE , have your vehicle taken by tow truck or flatbed truck to a shop / garage where a professional can evaluate the situation

What could cause low oil pressure in a Z24 Cavalier?

First, you need to install a mechanical gauge to insure that your oil pressure is low. You could have a bad oil pressure switch. If it shows that the pressure is low you will have internal problems. One of the biggest mistakes made is to assume that the oil pump is the problem. The oil pump is exactly what it says. It only pumps oil and the rod, main and cam bearing provide the pressure as the oil is forced By the bearings.
