Yeah, are they the same light? Or do both lights come on at the same time? The oil change would make me believe you are chasing a low oil pressure concern but have nothing to do with high temp issue. Is the truck stalling when these lights come on? Any engine noise?

Same issue, but mine occurred after an oil change. Temp gauge suddenly spikes and the low oil light comes on. Restart the car after a few minutes and the temp reads normal and the Low Oil light is off. Oil pressure gauge reads normal the whole time. No other symptoms.
