After I have driven the car a few miles, the oil light comes on when braking or when then stopped and idling. The oil light is not on when driving, when revving the engine while idling and has never stayed on at idle when first started cold. Oil level looks good on the dip stick. I do try to change the oil every 3000 to 5000 miles and am only 2000 miles since last change.
Any ideas what could be causing this? Is there a DIY solution?
