1996 Rav4 346K on her, she has been great till now. Yesterday while coming home the oil light came on, checked the oil and it was a little low, no discolor to the oil at all. Started up fine and ran fine, oil light went off. Heading home from work oil light came on checked the oil all good, no knocking or pinging drove fine all the way home. Next day drove to work light came on, no issues, started home at end of shift and light stayed on, started loosing power on a hill and quit, pulled over and sat a min, it started up fine, started to pull and it quit. Motor turns over and does not seemed to be locked up at all, so it has to be a sensor of some sort. 1. will that oil sensor going bad shut the engine down and prevent it from running, 2. what could be another sensor that might have gone bad that could cause the same issue, or 3. could it be something else. Need help please.

Sounds like it's a good possibility that you have a failing fuel pump particularly if there are no codes. See https://youtu.be/oBo-vmEEwv4

The oil light is probably a different issue, check your oil level.

Get a OBDII Bluetooth reader, they are very cheep now.
