Question about 2006 Ford Fusion
The oil light is telling you the engine oil pressure is below 10 psi which could damage the engine.
It can be low because of low oil in the crankcase, or various other reasons.
You would need to have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to verify the light should be coming on.

Take a good close look at the rubber strip between the windshield and the plastic shroud the wipers are mounted in. If it is not a tight seal on the passinger side water can run down and get the Pcm wet. When the Pcm gets just a little water on the connector it can cause the problems you describe. If it gets alot of water on it it can and fills the Pcm up, then you will have major problems. It will set error codes for everything and anything.
This is a defect in the design of the vans and the only way to fix it is to make sure that this rubber seal is tight against the glass (especially on the passinger side).
I had to have my Pcm replaced because of water (not a cheap fix) and the dealer did what Ford recommends. It filled with water again. After the third try I gave the dealer a piece of an inner tube from a wheel barrow tire and had them place it over the connector and seal it against the fire wall. Then I used aquarium sealant and glued the little rubber strip to the windshield.
I haven't had any more problems since.
The Pcm connector is probable the most critical part of the electrical system and they placed it in the worst possible place.
Ford knows of the problem but will do nothing to fix it.
Mine cost over $800 to fix, but believe it or not my insurance paid for part of it because it was water damage.

Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins.This may reset the lights timer. If it comes back on within the next few days the take it to a large auto parts store and most will bring their computer out and hook it to your car and read the code the light will leave in your car computer,then they tell what the code says and try to sell you the part.You might car the auto parts store first and tell them what you have and ask if then can read your code for you.Its usually a free service.

I have the exact same vehicle and had the same problem last year. There is a service update that can be applied at your dealer. It reprograms the order in which your fuel injectors fire. My truck would bairly start and when it did it would blow smoke and sounded like the rods were going to go throught the floor boards.
I would say you are having the same issue. Hope this helps,

SOURCE: oil light, noisy engine
What type of noise does it make. check if it has "blowby" . Blowby is when there is air coming through to the fuel system. It means that the rings , bearings , and other critical components are bad.The engine needs a complete overhaul or a new engine block. Maybe even the heads. if's it's a ticking, clicking kind of noise it is the valve lifters or rocker arm problem.such as the valves.

Actually, it would be impossible to change the fluid in a 2002 Ford Explorer transmission because it is a sealed "maintenance-free" unit. Ford claimed that this transmission should operate problem free for 150,000 miles, but as we know, this is not the case. Since the transmission cannot be flushed, premature wear occurs due to degradation of the fluid. This is just one of the MANY design mistakes made by Ford engineers during the end of the "disposable car" era. My best advice to you would be to sell the vehicle before you end up spending a fortune on repairs, and if you really love the Explorer, buy one that was built after 2005.
