I doubt that the 5W30 Mobil 1 is causing your problem.
Most likely, its a faulty sensor or a more serious pumping problem.
I've used 5W30 in the past in Audi 5cyls, and it works fine.
The 10-30 is a better choice however, except in the coldest climates.
Particularly on highway driving, the 5-30 will be a bit thin, alsmost
regardless of the temperature.
Check the oil pressure sender first, and/or look in the valve cover and
see if oil's spurting about with the engine running.
May I also suggest, make sure that the oil can get into the pump from the
oil pan throughout the grid at the bottom of the pump.
