Oil pressure and oil level are two different lights. Check your oil pressure gauge to see if it meets requirements per the owners manual.

If it was the oil pressure light - check your oil pressure sensor. It is on the top right intake manifold. Sometimes the wires get knocked off or come loose - or the sensor is bad.

thanks guys for the responses,loren since you said that the oil pressure and the oil level are different light,i've been waiting for the car to do it again to see which one is ,fortunated nothing yet,,,fbp111 thanks for the picture,,i did check the wires and moved them a bit,noticed a little oil around in the area,i dont know if that is because the engine is dirty or losing oil,,by the way,the oil level is full and no signs of leak on the floor,i did check that at cold start he oil needle does not raise to 5 bar ,close to 4 but at 5000 rpm is 4 bars, a 3000 rpm is 3.5 bars ,in highway is constant acording to the rpms ,at idle is 1 or 1.2...so like you guys said maybe is that sensor,i hope so,ill keep update,,,,thanks again
