Worn out bearings. Engine noisy? After light comes on turn eng. off and quickly check oil level, is it still full?
Could be ponding in valve covers. Have seen it before on another eng. How many miles on van? How often serviced
or do you know? Just happen all at once? Lots of info.still needed.

Most likely losing pressure due to worn engine componets. (most likely!!) Did you clean the oil pan when work was done, or did you do the work?
