Doc here,

Leakey valve cover gasket, OR leaky Oil pressure sender unit most likely is the culprit..

If it has been a LONG time since your engine was LAST tuned, that is the first BEST place to start..New plugs, module, coil, wires, Cap, Rotor, fuel filter (s), air filter, pump pressure and volume test, compression test, (125 to 150 /- 10% per hole) , code scan (if applicable)
