Default My 2001 CR-V's oil pressure warning light keep coming on?

Got 156,000 mile and at first the brake light started periodically coming on and now its the oil pressure warning light. Tripled checked both the brake fluid and the oil, both good. Regular oil changes. The oil pressure warning light comes on at idle but turns off after getting engine going then back on at idle. Just worried I'm doing damage by driving it unattended.

your oil pressure is probably low at idle then. have you changed the oil and filter recently? if not i would do that, maybe you just have sludge in the filter. is the idle speed correct, or is it lower than normal? I'm not sure about your car, but i would expect that about 700rpm should be normal. if all that is ok, then your engine could just be worn out

bad main bearings will cause oil pressure light to turn on at idle. Very exspensive fix, gotta tear down the whole motor or replace it. so yes it is doing damage. Bring it into the dealer to have a diagnostic done to double check. Good luck.
