Buzz Behind Radiator

There is a buzzing coming from behind the radiator / right in front of the engine that correlates with the engine RPM.

Not sure if this is part of the problem by my low oil pressure light came on. I checked the oil level and everything looked good. The light was gone when I cranked it back up.

Can anyone point me in the right direction in figuring out what it is?

Here is a link to the audio file of it idling.

Thanks!

The buzz is probably an idler or the fan clutch making noise. That wouldn't be your oil pressure issue. Either it's a false light because the sensor is failing or you really have no oil pressure. You can read my thread below when I've had oil pressure issues. A manual gauge is the only was to know for sure.
