2002 pt cruiser strange problem

I have a 2002 PT cruiser with approx. 25,000 miles on it. It has been running great however, this morning a starnge problem occurred one time. I started the car for a minute or two then drove off, got about 3/4 of a mile or so and made a left turn, started accelerating and all of a sudden the car sputtered ( like it was going to stall) for a quick second and the dashboard oil light came on. Then the oil light went off and the car was fine. I proceeded to go back home and check the oil level which is fine. I started up the vehicle again and drove it to work which was about 8 miles or so. No problems arised the whole way and the car appeared to drive fine. Any idea what would cause this as it may happen again. Again, this event only lasted a quick second and one time. Thanks for the help

Make sure you don't have a loose connection at your oil pressure sensor. Sounds like something happened there and car thought it was losing oil pressure and was going into limp mode.
