My check oil light was going on and off and I concluded it was low on oil. I took it in for an oil change and it 3/4 of a quart low. I had the oil changed and the oil warning light comes on and off while driving yesterday it was fine today it came on when I was on the freeway. Sometimes it blinks today it stayed on and then turned off when I made a turn.

Did the low oil light or oil pressure light come on?
First check the oil level. If it is good, then it is likely a bad sensor or a connection issue.
The connector could be loose or corroded. That is why the light is keep coming on an off.

Inspect the sensor. Make sure that the connector is secured and free of any corrosion.

If the light is for oil pressure, it could also be due to a bad sensor.
However, you want to make sure that the engine has adequate pressure. This engine should have 30-70 PSI of oil pressure at 1000 RPM.

Please let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
