    If the oil level is not low most likely it is a problem with oil pressure switch which operates this light .. it could be its wiring or may be the switch requires replacement .. even the oil pump will give you the same symptoms but oil pump becoming weak is quite less likely

    That light flickering is a sign of impending doom, check the oil pressure with a gauge immediately, if its low when the engine is cold or hot, remove sump and inspect oil pickup tube and O ring, It may also be necessary to remove the oil pump to check the relief valve too.

    Does your engine make any odd noises.

    Start from loose wires/ connectors... Check pressure switch condition... Check oil pressure... If its due to oil pressure then you should not be driving for long... Is the flickering at idle or at any rpm...?

    Pray that the wire or light is faulty.

    Else by the time the engine oil light starts coming on due to a bad oil pump, all is lost.

    Swap time bro!
