What does it mean when the oil pressure charge system light comes on the dash board, the car runs hot and stops in a 1989 lincoln town car?

The light came on first then the car ran hot and stopped.

It's about to throw a rod, likely because the oil hasn't been changed and it's running dry. Don't drive it!

Check the oil level, fill oil in to the correct level if needed. If there is no oil missing, it could be a defective oil pump. Don't run the engine until the oil situation is cleared - and hope it's not to late already.

When the oil pressure charge system light comes on the dashboard, it means that the the engine oil is not at the correct level. Therefore, you should stop driving immediately and turn the engine off. Then, check the engine's oil level. If it is low, fill it up. Visit a mechanic for more help. Visit http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/breakdown_advice/warning_lights.html for more information.

the engine lost its oil pressure and it then got hot because of friction,caused by lachk of lubrication ,it sounds to me like the engine siezed up and if that is the case then you will need another engine,which you could get at a auto junkyard for a few hundred dollars.then you could pay somebody around 400.00 to put it in.good luck to you...Christopher 56...............
