Oil Light

Hi,
I am a newby on here
Question;
I have a 2002 325ti auto and when i pull away in the morning the oil light comes on for 3-5 seconds and then goes off. Should I be worried?

first check your oilll level.. if it is full and still comes on then your oil sensor (in your engine) is faulty!!
