The truck has 62,000 on it. When I'm sitting at a stop light, the oil light comes on. The minute I pull away it goes off.
There is only one oil related light. It comes on when the oil pressure drops below 7psi. Usually, the only way this happens is low oil volume, which is why you were asked if you checked the oil.
The only other way this happens is if the oil pressure switch on the side of the engine is shot, in which case it is giving you a false low pressure indicator.
