Question about 2006 Ford Taurus
The check engine light has nothing to do with engine fluids, please read description of operation below. The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.
When the Check Engine is turned on by the computer control unit (called the PCM) the PCM has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Take your car to an autozone they can scan the codes for you. Your on-board diagnostic is telling you something is wrong. They cannot tell you exactly what is wrong but they can point you in the right direction. Can't beat it for the price of free. If you want to know exactly what is wrong you will need to take it to a licensed ford mechanic or dealer.
