If you're in a cold climate, they may have put some heavy weight of oil in the tranny.

Oil light at idle is a sign of wear. If it only happens at low revs and this is an old car, I wouldn't fix it unless it got worse. If it's a newer car, get a new oil pump.

My vtec on my 2000 honda civic si keeps going out it just happened recently. I was in fourth gear and the rpms were at about 6000 and then the check engine light came on. It came out with the code p1259,...

It's probably an oil issue. The Vtec requires a specific amount of oil pressure to work properly. You could be low on oil, you could have the wrong viscosity oil, or you could have an oil pressure problem such as a bad oil pump or worn engine bearings. Any of these will cause that code. An oil change with the proper oil would be a good place to start.

I have a rav4 that won?t go into gear once the engine is started. If the engine is off it will go into gear. So every time I have to stop I must turn off my car put it in first and then start it again....

Change the gear oil. If the gear oil is leaking get it fixed as soon as possible. If all the oil has leaked then it may have severely damaged the gear box.
