The engine repair symbol came on and I added oil as needed. But the light has not gone off even after much driving. Does this indicate a further problem?

    The oil is with the oil level, the engine alert is for many other different reasons, mostly for emission codes. Have it scanned for more information.

    You must reset the maintenance light at regular scheduled oil change intervals. Make sure you change engine oil as required and not just add. Check for oil leaks if your having to add oil.
