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?

The van runs fine and has plenty of power on acceleration. Idles at normal rpm, Idel air control motor is working good, egr valve works good by manual depression. Vacuum is steady at 15 inches of mercury. Inspected spark plugs, no problems found, cleaned rotor, distributor cap and inspected plug wires. No emission codes. It's not to bad in park but is very noticeable and sounds like it's going to die at a stop in drive.
Thanks

Cooling fans, reverse lockout, shift light, and speedo all quit working after sitting for 2 months.

needs to be replaced have used one that work to put back on

The first time the car shut off while I was coming to a stop but I was able to turn it back on and continued to drive it for a good week. After driving about 700 miles back home from out of state it totally shut off while on the freeway. I was traveling at least 70mph. It turned back on and continued to shut on and off while I was on the street.

headlights come on, but dash lights and tail lights don't. Brake lights and turn signals work fine.
