Default Still got issues with the turbo car

Ok so after I got the smoking thing fixed by replacing the PCV i now have a rough idle and oil light comming on, when I checked the oil the level is between min and max on the stick when its cold and been sitting for hours,is it possible that enough oil is being pulled from the pan when it warms up to put the oil level to the point of the oil light comming on and causing it to run rough? Thanks in advance for any help you guys have been great

Does the oil light only come on when hot or randomly? Rough idle all the time or just when oil light on? Oil viscosity rating? Oil sensors are known to go bad. Any engin coded?

My oil light would come on when the car was started, BUT, if I shut it off and restarted it would be off. Man times I turned the key to on, returned it to off then started and it was ok...
Probably oil pressure sensor.

Yes on all, the orig code was turbo over booste, once cleared put 50 miles or so on it and then the light came on again, now the code is air intake sensor, but the oil light comes on randomly and car surges when in drive
