Its very important, you lose oil pressure in the engine, some how the oil spills out while u are driving there is no way to know you have oil pressure, I would fix it ASAP...

You mean you didn't put the gas cap on tight and now the check engine light is on? Not having the gas cap on tight will cause the check engine light to come on. Put it on tight ,if the light is still on pull the neg. battery cable off for about 3 min. to clear any codes. Otherwise possible oil sending unit, and yes it is important.
