The check engine light comes on when the computer detects a problem,not necessarily meaning just the oil or water levels it could be one of any number of sensors that have malfunctioned,take it to your local repair shop and have them check it with a code reader to see exactly what is wrong.FYI most parts stores will check for free and help you get the part you need to repair it yourself.

The engine light is to tell u something is wrong with either the emmission system or driveabilty of your vehicle,i would suggest getting it scanned at a local shop or dealer to identify the problem,over time a small problem can become a large one and depending where u live it will not pass inspection with that light on,hope this helps

Waterpump went out and now there's water in the oil - what's wrong?


Water pumps are notorious for sudden failure without any warning. Often the first sign of trouble is a light on the dash board telling you your engines in running very hot. If you have covered a considerable distance you might have done further damage to the engine. we had an old vehicle were this happened. The engine had a system where the oil and water ran either side of a thin metal membrane about the engine. I am no expert, but I fear you have cracked that division between the water and oil

Engine oil light is showing on the dash board after switching on


Most important thing you need to do is to establish the actual oil pressure. put a mechanical gauge on the engine and read real oil pressure. If pressure is low (min is 15psi, I prefer to see at least 20 at idle) there is an internal problem...bearings etc. If pressure is good, sending unit has failed...replace it. I would not drive it 'till the oil pressure is verified as being safe. You might get lucky and someone just forgot to plug in the sending unit, but it must be checked!!!
good luck

Service Engine light on dash, will not turn off.


If your getting a service engine light on your dash there is something wrong with the engine, this light alerts you when a problem arises, you will need to find out what the problem is by reading the code output for the engine light with an obd tester, if you don't have one you can buy one, or you can try taking it to an auto parts store some places will read the code for you at no cost.
