There may be instructions on that in the manual - flip through the index, see if there's anything there. Otherwise, someone will be along that can help you, shouldn't be long now!

Prior to starting the engine there is no oil pressure so the oil pressure light will be on. Once started the light should go off right away.

After changing the oil the light may stay on a for few more seconds until the oil has had a chance to work is't way throughout the engine and build the oil pressure up.

Oil light on before starting.

The light being on prior to starting also lets you know the light is working and will come on indicating an issue.

Thanks to all, I just wanted to make sure I did not have a problem and that this was normal.
