Low oil warning turned on, so I added oil and after driving fifteen miles the oil warning light turned on again?

Low oil warning came on, so I added oil. Drove 15 miles and warning light came back on. Stopped and checked the oil stick and it's reading halfway up oil stick, but I can smell oil burning as well. Also, replaced fuel pump because a month ago due to ignition turning over for several seconds and taking several times to crank. And now it's doing the same thing. Help

We can only handle one problem per question so you will need to start a new question for the fuel pump issue. It sounds like you have a valve cover that is leaking onto the exhaust manifold which causes the smell, and you have an oil level sensor that is no good. here is a generic guide on how to change out a valve cover gasket with instructions in the diagrams below to show you on your car. Also, I have included the location of the oil level sensor so you can check it out. I would drain the oil first.
