You need to keep tabs on your oil every time you gas up, if it was in fact, 'low on the stick'. If it was not low, I would disconnect the ground cable on the battery to reboot your computer and clear codes. If it comes on again, it will be one of two things: the oil sender is bad(most likely and most common) or your oil pressure is low.If the engine runs quietly, it is probably the sender.Have it replaced.
