E ng lite came on pulled to stop light engine ran rough and was shaking ck oil was low filled oil ran better this am wife went to take truck to work got to the end of block engine ran rough brought back...

I don't think the rough running had much to do with oil level, since it started running rough a 2nd time. Check the fuel filter and ignition timing.

Try using high pressure air to blow out oil returns. The engine may have sludge build up due to foreign material sticking in oil drains from a 52 year old chevy. Love that engine. It was good in it's day! Good luck!

Oil lite came on right after oil pan gasket

Hi. This issue has several causes, but the oil light indicator is a strong sign of low pressure in the engine. This will cause the engine lubrication rate to drop, thus, producing a illuminated oil light, and erratic Oil pressure readings. The necessary actions are to have a manual oil pressure test ran on this engine, asap. When running a manual oil pressure test, you will discover if the true oil pressure is low, or normal. If the test proves that the oil pressure is, indeed, low, this will confirm that the Oil pump is suspect.

Now, if the true readings given during the manual oil pressure test are indicating that the pressure is normal, this will be the result of a failed sending unit(oil pressure switch).

usually comes on when you have to much/to little oil, or it needs to be changed, with the oil filter.. that should be the only reasons for it coming on.
