I keep getting a check oil message lately when I start my car, and the car has good oil pressure and is not low on oil...any ideas?

How are you reading your oil pressure?

What Tony said ^
Check oil level message means your oil pump is failing or the pressure sensor is. Most likely the pump because its only at startup. If you don't have a oil pressure gauge or some way to read through the OBD2 port from startup to driving, get it something!
How long does the warning message stay on? You may be damaging the engine right now. $$$$ How many miles are on the car?

I data log it with HP to watch the oil pressure, I'm taking the sensor out and putting a gauge on it this afternoon to check accuracy, I think its going to be a bad oil level switch. If the car had bad oil pressure it'd be noisy as hell.
