Oil pressure symbol

Noticed today that when I started my truck that shortly after I'm getting an oil can symbol next to the miles in the little display. Only there for a few seconds. Check oil level and that's fine. Did system check passed that and after I changed tune from 250 to 275 (spartan) I have only seen it once. Given I have started truck 4-5 time since. What do I need to check for etc? Oil pressure sensor going out?
Thought I could use my scan gauge 2 to check it out but seems I can't.

Same thing happened to me. Ended up being the sensor.
Took it to the dealership so they could do a pressure test.

Could have installed the sensor myself put wanted to make sure.

Yep. change the sensor. It's a cheap/easy test/solution.
Mine was doing the same thing and that fixed it. My oil levels were fine too.

Took more time to mod a tool to change the sensor than to actually remove it. Still is doing it on the first fire up after setting awhile, not after that. Oil was changed in December and has at most 2k but looks black way to early to me. I used shaeffers 5w40 full synthetic. Not impressed ,I have some blue flame 15w40 syn blend on the way. Like I said no codes and doesn't run or sound bad at all. And it only flashes real quick. Oil being crappy( in my opinion) possibly have a hand in this?

If you still have your egr then most of the time your oil will be black right when you change it and fire it up. Mine always was until I deleted now it stays clean for many many miles
