Consistently low oil pressure. Of course, that could be a plugged pickup tube too.... What makes you think your pump is going out?

The usual culprit is the oil pressure sender. What year/engine do you have?

Put a mechanical gauge on it, and see what pressure is really doing. Go from there.

The sender is located just above the oil filter.
