I have a 2000 GAGT with 140k miles on it. recently ive notice when driving left around a curve at various speeds the oil light will illuminate but will soon go out aftere the turn is complete. These turns are not high speed. and sometimes in this situation the transmition will up shift during the turn and once i straiten the wheel it will kick down hard intow the grar it was in. whats the problem could does anyone have a clue what may cause either of these to happen and are they related. and one the car sits for a while and its cold their is a noise squeaking noise coming from the engine near the pullies on the right side of the car i know its not the altenator, powersteering pump , water pump and tensioner pulley for all these have been replaced a few months ago. i was wondering what are all the other pullies purpose and could that contribute to my over all problem. Thanks for the help

Check your oil level. Unless the light is malfunctioning it trying to tell you your low on oil.

Well, 1st thing:

Stop driving it, since oil pressure light comes on.

It could mean: You have like almost no oil pressure !!!
Or you will need a new engine soon.

Like Sprucegagt said, check your oil level 1st thing (most common reason for low oil pressure).

Maybe your oil pump is going or the pulley is not getting rotated fast enough (caused by a slipping belt) .

Woops, your right.

It doesn't run off of the rubber accessory drive belt.
