When I start my car, my at oil temp light comes on for a brief amount of time (probably two seconds) along with the AWD light, doesn't flash and then immediately turns off. It turns off simultaneously with the AWD light. It doesn't come on while I am driving and It doesn't flash. It doesn't mention what to do about this in the manual and I am wondering if I should be worried. My transmission doesn't shake. I haven't had any problems driving. Should I get this checked out?

If it only comes on when you first start the car, my guess would be it's only the self test. Same with the check engine light and all the other warning lights.

Yes, I agree with SyrForester. This is called "bulb check" and it's so you can see whether any important lights won't flash when you need them to alert you to a problem.
