I started my car after about 4 hours of inactivity, and the oil level wonk came on. I immediately shut down the engine, then checked the dipstick. It was fine. Out of curiousity, I checked the oil filler (forgive the layterms:I've been drinking, and higher thought processes are not my thingy when drunk) and there was what looked like chicken fat stuck to the inside of the tube. It was a white jelly-like substance that smelled like gas. I do not know if the two are combined but for some reason, now the oil lever idiot light and alarm continue and unceasingly alert me. My usual mechanic (who is most likely high all the time) says the jelly is from a vacuum line that sucks stuff up that wasnt burned the first time around, so it sits there for a second time around, and is harmless. But I keep on wonking. Is the jelly jellied gasoline, and if so, how could it get there? Also, is it possible if the oil level sensor gets disconnected that it will set off the alarm? Thank you.

in either case i would change that oil. gas in the oil will thin it and wash the oil that is on your housing walls off and that not good.

where might I find the sensor for the oil level? I need to trace that back to see why I'm still getting the alarm. I'll replace the contaminated oil tomorrow, but I dont think that would cause the damn thing to go off on me...

I think I found the problem. My mechanic recently redid my engine mounts and I found the wire to the sensor IS GOING UNDERNEATH THE CAP!!! I think he crimped off the wire with the weight of the engine. At least I dont have to pay for anything!!!
