i took to the mechanic and he says that there is an oil cap housing which is missing. But i confirmed that there was no such part while i was replacing my Oil. How come the low oil pressure light appeared now while it didnt appear during the previous oil changes. And now my engine check light appears. Please provide me a solution.

O.k.,it looks like your oil cap and housing are all o.k. as shown here this is how yours is set up.You want to replace the O rings on the cap as well as the filter when changing oil as this causes low oil pressure.If you did not replace the O rings I would start with this.If these were replaced then an actual engine oil pressure test needs done to see if you have a faulty oil pressure sensor which may have failed suddenly for no reason when the oil was changed.The oil change wouldnt have caused the oil pressure sensor to fail but the sensor can fail on its own and cause this and may just be a coincedence with the oil change.
