The instrument cluster will tell you if the oil is too high or too low by saying reduce engine oil or add engine oil at next refuel. If you just have a an orange engine looking light on, it is the check engine light. You will have to have the engine scanned for fault codes for diagnosis. If the car is out of warranty, you can bring it to a place such as autozone for a free scan and then I will be able to assist you further.
