Seriously, you should recheck your work, make sure the oil filter hosuing is sealing well and that no oil is leaking from there or the drain plug and if the light is still coming on then try cycling the key several times or leaving the key out for a while. Did you turn the key on at any time while the oil was drained? Another thing to consider is these cars did have oil pressure sensor problems and also probs with the oil pump bolts coming loose and causing the pressure to go low. If that is happening then you will want to get it taken care of ASAP.
its full of oil, no leaks and the key was not turn at any time wile i was changing the oil the weard thing its that the light goes on and off and goes blury at times oh another thing if u don't mind helping me when the car its cold it idle like crap ones the car its hot its ok i appriciate all the help thanks.
you cna tighten them by taking the oil pan off however there are a couple that are difficult to get a socket or wrench on but it can be done and is how it IS done at dealerships. just be preparid for a mess, especially if you are doing this on the ground in a garage or something.
usualy i just tighten them and put a little of blue loctite on the bolts. but you gotta make sure that the bolts are clean of oil and the pump is clean so the loctite will actually work.
