The tach is the tachomter. What is the normal idle for the car? Even a small leak can go unnoticed but if the oil that does drip lands on a very hot pipe (exhaust) it will give off the odor. This could be a leak of the oil pan or it could be a slight leak of the oil filter.
I want to know what the rpm is when the light flashes on the oil light. Then if it is above say 600 rpm and the light comes on, get an oil pressure check done. If the pressure is normal or within the range of acceptable pressure, I would replace the oil pressure sensor.
If there a knock of the engine when it is warm? Is there a knock of the engine when it is cold? This is your car and if you want to fix it, elaborate and help me. Get your hands dirty.
