Yep, it's supposed to do that. If I recall correctly (it's been a while) a red LED lights next to the temperature gauge to show that it's in ' oil level' rather than 'temp' mode, and then after a few seconds, the light goes out and the gauge goes back to showing you the temperature.

It's a bit disconcerting if you're not expecting it, which is probably why they later dropped it in favour of showing the oil level as a series of O's and dashes on the trip computer display.
