The sending unit for the oil guage will cause the oil guage to fluctuate this is caused from some sludge build up that is more than likely stuck in the sending unit tube. Use Gunk motor flush on your next oil change this should help the oil guage problem.( make sure you read the direction on the back of the bottle)
As for the check engine light you can take it to Auto Zone and have them scan the computer. Sometimes the EGR valve will build up with carbon causing the valve to stick slightly open which will make the idle on the car fluctuate up and down. Its also possible you need O2 sensors.

SOURCE: 96 grand marquis won't start
The switch at the throttle is called a TPS, throttle position sensor. It is fairly easy to change, has 2 screws and 1 electric connector. When you put your foot on the gas pedal a cable running to the Airhorn will move a part which the TPS is connected to.
The TPS is a variable resistor and it is possible to be bad on one end and good further up. Now if replacing the TPS does not solve your problem, something else is slightly off that can be compensated with the footpedal. You may have low fuelpump pressure or a low Vacuum pressure level contributing to the starting problem.
Both Autozone and Oreillys can scan your car and they do it free. You may find another component is bad. The scans will help, but do not cover every system. The TPS is not an expensive part and it is where I would start.
I hope this is helpful to you. Thanks for using Fixya.
