You will need to have another code scan done. A faulty glow plug will certainly show up on a scan, but should NOT bring on the engine MIL light. Erase all faults showing at present. This should extinguish the engine light. Thin start and stop engine a number of times until the light comes back on. This will re boot on-board computer. Do another scan and the fault should show up. If possible do a live reading, paying close attention to the (oxygen sensors) lambda units
Best of luck

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.
