It could be that your sensor (under the alternator) is making a faulty connection.
The factory oil pressure light is set to come on at 2-3psi. Generally, by the time you see the light, the damage is already done. I call it the new motor needed light.
Thanks, So should I see about getting a new sensor first? the light hasn't come back on and like i said it was faintly on for a few minutes. seemed to be running fine and has been since.
