can't remember the fsm but maybe the neutral safety switch is shorting out the oil light?
this is only an educated guess.

yes..i had this problem for a month or so after installing my JDM motor....then the motor locked up....check oil pressure and my advice would be to get ready to order up a new motor.....

I'd play it safe. Once you pull off your oil pan you'll see that even a slight upward dent under the pickup tube will cause sever oil starvation.... Pull out the pan and beat it w/ a piece of wood and a hammer where it rests under the pickup.

Oil Starvation == Death to your motor. I'd take it pretty seriously.

If the plug came off the sender, and it touches anything metal, it will go on and off. Happened to me before. But get an oil pressure gauge, and see what your oil pressure is at!
