If the oil level is between the low mark and the end of the dipstick, then the oil level is low by about 1.5 - 2 quarts. On my 4.9L, the same message "Low Oil Pressure - Stop Engine" appears when the oil level drops a bit below the low line.....and is fixed by simply bringing the oil level back up to the proper level. Add oil before changing the switch.
The same is also true for my 4.9. I have a slow oil leak from the pan gasket so if I dont keep the level up or go a little too long between changes it gives the pressure error for whatever reason, resolved simply by adding a quart. The 4.9 oil capacity is less than the Northstar, so a quart matters more in the 4.9.
