I just got my 1996 A4 V6, and my oil light will come on every other start and will blonk a couple times and shut off. Does this mean I need an oil change, or am I low on oil? Any help is greatly appreciated. I check my levels on my dipstick and it looks good.

Poss pressure sender malfunction or failing oil pump... seen both - take care of it now to avoid engine damage/destruction

Check the oil pressure with a gauge. Your mechanic can do this.
