If its the red oil can flashing light thats seriously low oil pressure or a faulty sensor/wiring. Is the motor running rough/noisy, is oil level okay ?

Its either low on oil or the sender unit is toast or your oil pump is bust which is rare.
The end is nigh, but the end of what is the question?

What engine? Could be sludge build up, it is very rare for a oil pump to fail

Ive had a oil pump relief valve stick and oil pissed out the side of the oil filter at like 300psi
Oil filings in the oil from a flogged out crank shaft thrust bearing.

The engines running smooth as! Oil was a bit low though, I put some in and the light didn't pop up again. However I think it is running rich on oil generally. It has a 2.4 V6 non 4wd.
