If the condition that cause the check engine light, CEL, to come on no longer exist, the CEL will reset itself after a few days of regular driving. Chances are, the CEL cause your lag in performance and not the low oil. I think you have some other problem besides the low oil.

I would give it a few day or you can drop by the dealer or auto zone and have them scan the code.
