THE OIL LIGHT COMES ON AND FLICKERS WITH RAISED RPMS THEN EVENTUALLY STAYS ON. WHAT COULD CAUSE THIS?

Im wondering if I can check the oil pressure relief valve or if I have to replace the oil pump

Low oil pressure may be the issue. You need to have a manual test done first to confirm. If it is, then it may be more than just the pump as the bearings may be worn out causing the low pressure. A shop can make that determination for you and give you a bid.
