This sounds like your losing sufficient  oil pressure this can be caused by a number of things #1 very high milage  generally above 150 thousand #2 clogged oil filter #damaged oil pan/smashed or push against bottom of the oil pump #oil that is past oil change interval of manufacture #sending unit maybe malfunctioning .. i would recommend having a service shop take a look at it rite away  it could save you a lot of money if their is  a problem with your oiling system

What causes oil check light to show when a car is idling and off when the car is eccelarated?

It is all to do with your oil pressure.
At idle 800rpm with a warm engine your pressure mite be say 15psi.
At 2000rpm that same engine would have a oil pressure of 40psi.
Your oil pressure warning sender is set at about 20psi.
It is only a warning light and not a lot to worry about for 15psi at idle is enough to keep up with a engine that is not under a lot of strain.

Have the tranny oil level checked first off.. Next have the tranny pressures checked as it appears that you are not getting sufficient pressure to hold the gears. May need a tranny adjustment in the bands and clutches in the box

Only way to know whats going on is to have the engine light checked with a OBD II diagnostic tool, there's a data link connector under the drivers side dash that it plugs into, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will check the engine light with a tester at no cost, for example auto zone, or you could take it back to the mechanic to see if he can diagnose the problem. The service engine light come's on when the pcm (powertrain control module) senses a problem. good luck !
