The check engine light just means you are not meeting emissions. not a biggie. go to an auto parts store that does a free scan and get the fault code before spending any money.

My son's 1996 Ford Taurus SHO has the "check engine soon" light on and the guys at the garage said that the diagnostic code is secondary air system, wrong flow. Is this something major or...

When I get this code on my Ford Escape it is because who ever filled the gas tank last didn't lock the cap down properly. Have the gas cap tested and replace if it fails. This is a minor vacuum leak but because it is minor it is difficult to find as well. Check all your vacuum lines for damage or leaks.

Ford taurus engine oil light

In Australia, the oil pressure sender switches, depending on the car, cost as little as $15AU. Also depending on the car, they can be relatively easy to change, if you can get access. So even if a mechanic were to change it, I wouldn't think they would charge more than 30 mins of labour.
