Bought used car from Huyndai dealer 5 days ago. No warranty given. Is not consistent but came on 2-3 days, not while idling for 5-10 mins but after starting to drive. Stayed on for 20 mins or more. Is this serious engine problem? Got fitness assessment from them before buying. They did oil change and changed the oil filters. There is no oil leak and the engine oil is full. Power steering fluid is less though. Please advise what to do!

It could be a bad oil pressure sending unit they do go bad. Or a issue with the actual oil pressure itself. The best thing to do is get a oil pressure gauge when the light is coming on an see wat the actual pressure is at idle and at like 2,000 rpms. Or you could get a oil pressure sending unit and replace it an see if it fixes it.
