Have you done an oil change ? if not that could be the problem. replace the oil filter this every 5000 miles at the very least.

Why is the oil light coming on intermittently?

You either have a bad oil pump, too much clearance in engine components or a bad oil sensor.

If you have the 6.0 you likely need a new oil pump, common problem around 150,000 miles.

After 20-30 min. driving oil light comes on when stopped. oil light goes back off when moving again.

There is less oil distributed to the engine in idle position than when you drive. So when the oil light comes on, you may have to put a little oil in your car. While driving, the oil reading may be enough for your sensors in your car to not send a signal, but when you stop and the oil pressure goes down, it may not be enough and that's when the light comes on. When you drive 20 to 30 minutes, your oil gets thinner because it is warm. That also will send a different reading to the sensors. You may want to try a thicker oil (instead of 10/40 try 5/20 ... ask before you do this!).

Rough idle / varying oil pressure when accelerating

Ok not to keen on newer vehicles actually prefer the carburated ones, but oil pressure is supposed increase on your gauge when accelerating. If it wasn't going up before and just staying at 40 the needle might have been stuck. But idle should be 40 lbs and when you work the moter (reving or driving down the road) the guage should show an increase for every 1000 rpm above idle. Second if you can get a hand held scanner (bought mine off ebay for $30) check for any codes in your computer you will probably find that you either have a bank running wrong or some other sensor that needs to be changed. I'd go with getting my own scanner it saves alot of money and time, garages make their money here.

Oil pressure light on at idle

Don't delay on this. Take the vehicle in and have the oil pressure sensor checked. It could be just the sensor or it could be something more serious. A drop in oil pressure could lead to catastrophic engine failure.

Oil light


what sort of clicking? is there any knocking noise when you rev the engin?? if you have engine idle set then it could be the shell bearings if the oil light is staying on (worst case) or maybe a faulty oil switch!! keep it checked for oil and it shuld be ok!!
