Re: BLINKING OIL LIGHT
Yes....Check oil level. Listen for tapping noises from engine....Change oil, have someone put a pressure gauge on engine (a real mechanical one) If pressure is OK, change oil pressure sending unit. If pressure is low, you have a real problem (internal wear) If so, consider a rebuild or replace vehicle.

why did you replace head gasket? did the car overheat due to bad gasket? and how hot did it get ? did you have the head checked for possible cracks? also check for hair leaks again on external components.
check out the neutral saftey switch on trans, if its reporting unknown gear on scanner while moving t bar it wont know what gear to be in and give you similar problems, also has oil been leaking into switch before?
there is always the possibility that you really have low oil pressure when you get this light, at idle the engines oil pump produces the least pressure and if there are problems then that is when it shows up, so have the oil pressure tested by a shop with a mechanical test gage, if the oil pressure is within spec then replace the oil pressure light sending unit on the engine, I don't recommend you drive this until u are sure of the pressure, u can SEVERELY damage the engine is the pressure is really low.
The oil gets lighter as the engine heats up.
Was this problem there before you changed the oil? If no, thn the grade of the engine oil you have used (replace) could be of wrong specs., try using a higher grade.
Hope this helps!
