The problem is when the truck warms up, the oil gage drops down (about 1/4 from top) and when i come to a stop the revs go way down and the oil light comes on
some times the revs go so far down it stalls
Ive bone a oil change and filter and replaced the Oil pressure switch sensor thing
Its driving me crazy!!

If I read this right you have 200,000 miles on it? I'd say worn bearings. Cam, rod or main, maybe all 3 depending how you took care of your motor.
