CHANGING ENGINE OIL Be careful not to burn yourself, as the engine oil is hot. 1. Run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature. 2. Stop the engine. 3. Remove the oil filler cap (on rocker cover) and the drain plug (on the oil pan). Drain the engine oil. 4. Re-install and tighten the drain plug to the specified torque. 5. Fill new engine oil through the oil filler. a. Cover the generator with a shop towel before pouring the engine oil to ensure that if oil spills, it will not drop on the generator. b. Use a funnel to pour in the engine oil. 6. Install the oil filler cap. 7. Start and run the engine. 8. Stop the engine and then check the oil level. Add oil if necessary.

the light is probably sending an OIL Pressure drop warning ---there is a rarity however
an oil filter may be improperly installed or the OIL Pressure connection on the oil pressure
sending unit --usually next to the filter --is loose or corroded or the oil pressure sending unit may
be going bad ---on a 2001 it is conceivable
otherwise you have an internal oil pressure leak --crank or cam bearings --bad o ringy thingy somewhere or the oil pump --may be experiencing problem too or the pick up screen in the oil pan
is somwhat clogged ---for a clog --try what's called SEAFOAM in the oil ---the stuff actually works
like it says on the can --about 8 bucks --drive for a week --say 500 miles worth and change the oil filter again --just the filter ---either way OIL Pressure is nothing to ignore ---you need to fix that
asap depending on the problem source!!!
I hope this helps

SOURCE: Loss of Engine oil
The car either has to be leaking oil, or burning it out the exhaust. You should check to see if there is oil on the bottom of the engine. If clean, it can be burning oil cause rings or shot, emisssion system sucking it back through the engine, etc. Your engine should be in good condition since only 55K miles, unless it got overheated or something. Hope this is a place for you to start, Rick
