my oil pressur light stays on for like a second after start up. Anything to worry about with the m50?

make sure you have the proper amount of oil in the engine.. beyond that its nothing to worry about. the pump does need to start making pressure when its first started

I got the same problem I heard it's the check valve in the oil canister. Basically it doesn't close and the oil drains to the oil pan when the car is shut off. When you start the car there is no oil in the canister and it take a second or two to build the pressure and fill the canister. Most people tell me not to worry about it since it;s only a second or two.
