Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Your computer usually shouldnt be checking the engine oil level with the engine running.I know some models had a software issue in the engine computer that would check the level with the engine running and a dealer had to update the software to correct this from occuring.The engine oil level is only checked with the key on and engine off.
If this engine for some odd reason is designed to check the engine oil level with the engine running and you have replaced the engine oil level sensor I would have the wiring checked to the sensor for any issues and if found o.k. it is possible there is sludge build up in the cylinder heads keeping the engine oil from draining back fast enough which will cause the low oil level indicator.
I would check for new software first to make sure this isnt the cause here.
