The oil light comes on and flickers with raised RPMs then eventually stays on. What could cause this?

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.
