I see this all the time! That's what happens when the oil is not changed regularly. If your oil light is still coming on, it is because there is severe damage to the engine bearings, connecting rods, valve lifters, cylinder walls and probably the crankshaft and camshaft. That is pretty much the WHOLE engine. Your only choices are:
> Replace it with a new/remanufactured engine (this choice will come with the best warranty, but you'll pay for it).
> Replace it with a used engine (cross your fingers and pray you get a good one - hopefully, one that has been properly maintained and isn't nearly as bad as the one you are replacing).
> Remove your engine, overhaul it, and put it back in (very time-consuming and usually has very little warranty).
> Sell the car "AS-IS" or trade it in on a new car. (you probably won't get much unless you sell the car NOW while the engine still runs).

I have customers that continually go WAY overdue for their oil changes. They use excuses like "I didn't have the time" or "I just couldn't afford to get the oil changed". I try to warn them of the possibilities. I tell them that they cannot afford to NOT change the oil, but they just ignore my efforts and come back way overdue the next time. I should refer them to you!

The check engine light will not come on because of two different oils. The engine has no idea if your using synthetic or conventional. The best thing to to is see why the light has come on by scanning the computer for codes. Code readers have become relatively affordable. $50 will get you a decent one. Otherwise give your local parts store a call and see if they can scan it for you.

Once you know what code(s) are present it will be a lot easier to determine what the problem is.

Make sure your gas cap is tight and the oil cap is tight.

Change oil light came on

In your owners manual there is a procedure listed for resetting thr oil change reminder/maintenance light. Some vehicles you turn key not start it.. step on gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times... then key off. others haver u hold the trip odometer reset button when u turn key on.
It varies from manufacture to manufacturer.

Oil light comes on and dings all day

If engine is not ticking or knocking while running, likely the pressure sender is faulty. If changing it makes no difference, have actual pressure checked with a mechanical gauge.
