The light is not a level indicator, it is a pressure indicator. Assuming you have the correct oil and the right amount of it, something caused your oil pressure to drop. My first suspicion is clogged oil pick up, but you should pull the oil pan and take a look.

My service light went on my tractor just after 25 hours of use.I put some oil in it. now I have a big cloud of grey smoke coming out of exhaust in front engine.


Your check engine/service light possibly came on to indicate a oil change due interval @ 25 hours.
Double check your engine oil level; it may be too full. If the oil level is over the full mark, drain off some of the oil in the engine so the crankcase oil level is between the add & full marks on the oil level dipstick. The grey smoke you're seeing is likely oil being burned off.
On a side note, I am assuming you replaced the engine oil with the same weight/viscosity oil that was previously in the engine or recommended by the manufacturer in your owner's manual.

HOW TO RESET THE BLINKING OIL LIGHT ON A CUB CADET RZT


The dashboard for Cub Cadet/MTD mowers includes hour meter, Low oil, or time for oil change, PTO, and other lights. If the oil light is flashing, it means 1 of 2 things. Low Oil Level, or it is time to perform maintenance by changing Oil and Filter. After this process, the light will reset itself after a few more hours of running.

Transmission over temp light comes on. transmission works fine but once went into limp mode


have a pressure test done on the box to check for internal faults. Any high pressure leaks will cause heat. check the filter and while the pan is off adjust the bands and clutch packs . Check the radiator cores are not blocked as engine temperature will affect the transmission oil temperature . check oil level as extra oil will cause frothing and over heating.

Pull the oil dipstick and see what your oil level is at. If there is no oil on the stick then your oil level is low. Add a quart of oil and check it again. (give the oil at least 30 seconds after you finish pouring it to get down to the oil pan to register on the dipstick first). Then only add more if it still does not register on the stick. If the oil level is fine, then you may have a bad oil pressure sensor.

Traffic not working at peak times


Most traffic reporting is done over FM radio frequencies so it really doesn't matter whether it's rush hour or not, unless your GPS traffic receiver is being shielded by other traffic, but this is unlikely.
You can learn all about how this is done at http://www.gpsreview.net/traffic/ If the traffic receiver is external to the GPS, like with the Garmin NUVI where it's in the power cord, make sure it's not near some dense metal that might be shielding it.

Overheating car


There may be an issue with your oil pressure sensor.
You also probably have a faulty water pump that is functioning under revs but not at idle, what happens if you rev it mildly at idle

Oil issue


it really sounds like you have water in the oil or some other contaminant (bike wasn't run on Castor oil?) You probably want to drain oil into a clean container and flush system before you do serious damage. Bike is geting hot enough to boil off water?
