Hello Tanejaami. What you are observing and have reported is what should be happening. When you turn on the ignition a number of lights appear all indicating that these systems are functioning correctly. That said, if the check enging light stays on after the engine is running that simply means that the car's computer has an error message in it's data bank. If you wish to know what that message is you have to have the car's computer scanned. To do that you can go to any AAMCO repair shop where they now scan for free, many auto parts stores where they now scan for free, or to a dealership where there is generally a charge. That said, start with the free scan and if it doesn't give you the information you need to solve the problem then get the pricey scan. The difference is that the dealerships have a more sophisticated scanner which is capable of more detailed information. Joe

The check engine light means that there is something wrong with the car. If you ignore it ,the problem will only get worse to the point that the vehicle wont run properly. Take the car to a garage and have the computer scanned for fault codes and this will tell you what the problem is.

Stop trying to start it. Have someone turn the the engine over, while you look inside the valve cover through the oil filler. W/ flashlight see if rocker arms are moving if not timing belt is broken.

open the trunk lid and check the wiring in the loom along the driver side hinge. it may be necessary to peel back some of the loom , but you will probably find a broken or chafed wire in this section, if not check all the ground wires between the brake and backup lights.

Oil light

No oil spiting out the open hole is not a good sign. Im sure you checked the oil level but check it again. Do not run the engine with no oil pressure or it will eat itself up in real fast. The problem could be in the pump itself. They seldom go bad but the some times they will have a clogged pick up screen or shear a pin on the gear.

Don't use any higher octane fuel than what the manufacturer recommends, that will cause problems with cold starts and other poss issues due to the diff of the fuel burn rate. As far as the check engine light goes there are 100 different things that turn the light on, all are related to faults that have occurred in the electronic control of the engine, emission control system and in some cases the transmission, have the powertrain control module tested for trouble codes, whenever the light comes on one is stored.
