Q: The oil presssure light on on 1998 Nissan Maxima

The oil pressure red light is on when i turn the key from off to on. After i start the engine, it goes off. Is it normal?

Another problem is i could not start the engine without a bit depress on the accelerator. Is it related to the oil pressure red light on that i have mentioned?

Yes it is normal to have the oil light on until start up.But the depressing of the accelerator is not related to the light.Check your throttle body butter fly for carbon build up and your fuel filter.Hope this helps.
