My oil light is on, however, my car runs just fine, no loss of power, and the level is fine. And when I take off the filler cap, nothing sprays out. Is this normal? And what could cause the oil light to be on?
Could be bad oil pressure sending unit, a short. Take to mechanic because its important to repair to minimize problems in future.

The oil light generally comes on when there is a lack of oil pressure, not necessarily because the oil level is low. A technician with an oil pressure guage should be able to determine if the concern is caused by a faulty switch or if there is an oil pressure issue and further diagnostics are needed.
