Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This response applies only to the engine:
Use 30 WT SAE engine oil.
You can use either detergent or non-detergent oil. I recommned 3 oil changes normal oil change intervals using 30 WT SAE non-detergent oil and on the 4th oil change use a detergent 30 WT Oil.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My Oil Light came on and it is full of oil is it the Oil Pump and Oil Sending Unit for a 1997 Chevy L:umina

If your oil sending unit is seeping oil then I would change that first. You could get an after market pressure gauge and install it were the sending unit goes, that would tell you if its the pump.

Having oil pressure problems

The sending unit is a variable resistor. When the oil pressure is normal only a small amount of voltage goes to ground through the sending unit. As the oil pressure goes down, more voltage is shunted to ground reducing the sending unit voltage and causing the gauge to indicate a lower pressure. If the oil pressure falls very low or disappears the sending unit shunts all the voltage to ground which causes the dash indicator to show no oil pressure.
Now if the wire to the sending unit gets nicked, melted or cut and finds a short circuit to ground, or gets disconnected in a junction point between the gauge and the sending unit, you will get the same no oil pressure indication from the gauge.
Check you wiring for a short to ground or an open connection.

Oil pressure drops when idle and trouble light goes on. When rpm's rise the oil pressure goes back to normal levels and the light goes off.

Your oil sending unit might be malfunctioning. If you have oil in the car and there isn't sludge or other factors that might cause the light to go on, have your mechanic check that oil sending unit.

Low oil pressure light goes on until car warms up. Oil level is good

The oil pressure sending unit has gone bad. I sending unit is just above the oil filter and you can get to it from the top. When you face the Engine look down towards the oil filter, the oil pressure sending unit is just above that and it looks like a cylinder with two wires coming from it. If you don't see it, it's right between the exhaust manifold and oil filter.
If you go to Auto Zone or Parts Source, they'll have the oil pressure sending unit and the step by step instructions, When installing the new sensor. Do not use teflon tape or any sealant, the sensor is tapered and need's the good ground from the engine to give you right readings.
Good luck and hope this helps.
