Default Check Oil Level

Light is on the dash but when i check the level with the dipstick, oil level is in operating range
wondering if it maybe a sensor? If so can i replace it my self or do i need to take it to a shop?
if i can change it my self can someone tell me where sensor is located?...i changed crankshaft sensor with the help of some of you guys.....i have a 2000 deville....Also as soon as i start the engine it idles funny for the first 30 seconds or so then it idles normal. Any suggestions on why this is happening. Motor has aprox 125000 miles on it
thanks guys

I just purchased a 94 sedan deville, and I love it. However, I have a problem with oil leaking . The leak is coming from a line that runs from the radiator. Sometimes there is a lot, but most of the time there is little. While driving today, the stop engine, low oil pressure lite came on. I stopped the car, added more oil. What could be causing the leak?

most likely, the fittings are either lose or have failed.

but sounds weird. you have a oil cooler?
i can see a trani cooler, but by your description i see engine oil? or am i assuming too much.

Unfortunately, 4.9s are know for leaks. Normally leaks don't come and go. You may need to clean engine and add dye. to find out whats leaking. Oil cooler hoses if leaking, you can lose a lot of oil quickly.

Sensor screws in side of pan, drain oil before removing. Oil pan is not removed to replace sensor.

If I have a94 Concours with the same problem would the sensor be in the same spot on the side of the oil pan to unscrew?
