It could be. It's an easy and cheap try. The sender in threaded into the block above the oil filter.

Replace it and let is know if it fixes it!

If you need help finding the sender, I attached a picture. Yous won't have the braided stainless steel line running to it, that is for a mechanical oil pressure gauge I have. Nevertheless, it attaches to the same port as the electric sender did.
