Question about Cars & Trucks
You really need to use a scanner to identify the problem. The low RPM may have triggered the oil light.
Since you said the engine is not overheating, it must be running again. So you can get free scans at Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys autoparts. Then you can follow the advice of the clerk or get the Code number and ask us for help.
Please include vehicle details so we know what you are driving.

would be best to have oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to be sure you have oil pressure.
hopefully you just have a bad oil pressure switch this is located on oil filter adapter rt above filter

run it and let it get hot (not to the point of overheating just let it warm up to normal or slightly above normal). put your hand near the upper radiator hose, if you feel not heat, touch it, be careful as it may be hot. if it is not hot at all but the engine is warmed up it is the thermostat, the thermostat is located where the upper radiator hose connects to the motor, usually a 2bolt metal fitting, if this is the case just replace the thermostat.

If this is the intercooler there is a recall on it. I took mine in, but there is an eight week waiting perid for the part.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: check engine light has come on
You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why the light is on.
If there is an advanced auto or an autozone near you, go there and tell them the engine light is on, and you need a code retrieved. They don't charge for this, where other places do. Tales about a minute.
