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.

SOURCE: 2005 ford taurus engine light on
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.

some cars with oil level warning light on, it doesn't mean that its only reading the engine oil level is low, sometime the transmission fuid too. Did you check your transmission fluid if it is ok or not? try to check and let us know, ok.

Increasing the weight of the oil by a shade will get rid of the problem, and adding a high-zinc motor oil will eliminate any possibility of sludge in the pan (with proper oil changes). However, as mentioned before, it is a band-aid fix. It will work indefinitely, if you are diligent with changing your oil every 3000 miles. Use 3.8 quarts of Rotella T 15w-40, add one quart of Lucas oil stabilizer, and use a WIX filter with an anti-drainback valve (which isn't really necessary since the filter hangs upside-down on a 2.7, but it's a good habit to use one on everything you drive). Do not use a Fram filter, Valvoline oil, or STP... or anything else. The three I mentioned above are the only ones to use, and DO NOT USE SYNTHETIC OIL/ADDITIVES. I bought a 2004 Intrepid for the whopping sum of $250 that had the oil light/idle/low RPM issue because the owner was told by Sternberg Chrysler Center in Jasper, Indiana that the engine was going to grenade in short order. He wasn't going to pay them in excess of $2000 to replace the engine. I've put tons of miles on it since, and absolutely NO sign of the light, even now with the 2/1 Oxygen Sensor bad (which lowers the idle down to 600 instead of 750-800 where it should be). I'd trust the car cross-country. It's an expensive oil change at around $40 instead of $20 with cheap components, but what's saving your engine worth to you? A heck of a lot, I'd hope!
