Exclamation Oil light on when re-starting truck

So, if I shut the truck down and let it sit for a short period of time, the oil light comes on for a second (or less) and then shuts off. The light does not stay on, but it has recently started doing this EVERY time I re-start the engine after it has been warmed up. Has anyone else had this issue, and figured out what the cause is? I REALLY don't want to have to pull the engine and do an oil pump or a worse, a rebuild...

Oil pump is done engine in, it's at the front of the crankshaft behind the balancer. You do need special toolsl for the crank seal. I'd try a oil pressure regulator first (or just stretch the spring / add washers). From underneath, it's behind / below the balancer. Uses a 12mm Allen key I think. Make sure you get 3 things or of the hole. The cap, the spring and the plunger.

Mine has been doing the same thing since I owned it with only 17,000 miles on it. I've got 35,000 miles on it now with no problems. So what is going to happen if I do nothing?

I spoke with a reputable mechanic here who specializes in Powerstrokes. He said it is not something to worry about. If the light comes on and stays on, then you have a problem. For now I am not going to worry about it...

what if it comes on after you turn the engine off but goes away right after you start the engine?
