Check the oil level first. You may have a genuine engine oiling problem or it could just be a sensor. Did it come on right after you started it or did you get to drive it for while before it came on?

Well I just purchased the car a 1998 Cadillac eldorado and last week I took it to Auto zone for a dianostic test and it says I have a sensor issue. Now last week the change oil light has came on. What can be the problem?


Sounds like you may have a couple of problems. Check the oil and see if it is dark if so change it and the filter then reset the mileage minder for the oil change. Then find out what sensors are setting the codes, run the diagnostic procedures on those systems to find out if it is the sensor, wiring or the main processor.
