The red oil temperature light is for the automatic transmission, but you need to address the engine codes first. Missing could be caused by a bad spark plug, plug wire, failed coil pack, no one checks valve clearances (they are adjustable on your Subaru. If an ignition failure occurs fuel may be injected into the cylinder but not burned making for a rich mixture.
