Q: Oil Pressure fluke?

asked by on

When at a stop light today, when the light turned green and I put my foot on gas pedal at the same time the oil pressure light went on and the car died and was stuck there at the green light. I quickly turned off my car and started it back up with no problem, the oil pressure light went off as it normally does after starting the car and the car has been running fine the rest of the day. Was this a fluke?
