2005 Mazda3i automatic, 70k miles.

i had to do a near emergency stop today.
The engine and oil lights came on, but the engine was still running.

i turned the car off, then restarted. there were no warning light, and everything seemed normal. after i reached work, i looked at the oil level. It was a little above max.

1) Why did the engine and oil light come on due to the hard stop?
2) did i do any damage to the car?

You might be getting low on oil...check the level when the car has been off for a while.

The oil might have shifted so suddenly, that it caused a false oil pressure reading. its no big deal. continue driving.
