I just had my oil changed and a 12 point inspection done on my car 3 days ago. Tonight on the way home I noticed the oil light in my car would flash on and off red when braking and idleing. What's going on? Should it be towed? The oil level is perfect and the light does not stay on. Should I be concerned?

Yes you should be concerned. You need to have a oil pressure test performed. The test should be made at oil temp at 176 degress, at idle minimum 10PSI, at 3000 RPM minimum 50PSI. I can email you an exact figure on where and how this test can be performed. Email me at email@example.com
