I believe it comes on when some part of your engine is not getting enough oil (probably the head). It can happen for both reasons you mentioned, and uaually because of low oil. When you take a corner, it sloshes to one side and the sump doesn't pick it up. Don't drive it when the oil light is coming on because you can seriously mess up then engine. You're supposed to park the car immediately and turn off the engine ASAP when the light comes on.
Whoa, just noticed you're from Gainsville. Ever go to Less Than Jake or Against Me shows?
i dont live there anymore (i graduated from uf a year or so ago), but i did go to one show at the palace there. they came into the bowling alley where my friend worked all the time. they are really friendly guys (less than jake that is).
