Very true plus whoever changed it might have put a heaver weight oil than your used to or not put the full amount in. Have you check the level?

If it's the pressure, you shouldn't drive it but 99 out of 100 it's the sensor. The bearings can be done at home if you have the right tools. If you live around some of the bigger auto stores, some of them have tools you can borrow.

Take a look at post #111 on this thread.
