Default High coolant temp, cel, oil pressure light goes on and off? wtf

Well I'm home from college for 4 days so I did a little work on the car.

-Saggy butt spacers
-Grounding Kit

After I finish, I start the car. It doesn't start and I get a cel. I try to start it again, it starts and the cel goes away. I let the car warm up and then I take it for a 15 minute drive and at some points, I drove the car very aggressively

I get home and the car sits for 2 hours. I get in it to drive my sister to her friends house, car starts up and gets a cel. The coolant temp gauge is also maxed out. I pull the dipstick out, oil is cold. I get back in the car and the oil pressure light is on. I tell my sister whats up, look at the cluster and the oil light is off. I decide to drop my sister off and go find a code reader.

One mile from the house oil light comes back on. I figure I shouldn't push my luck so I drive back to the house.

WTF! Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

could very well be a ground loop. Where did you install this illustrious grounding kit too?? and did you ever try to pull codes? You really need to pull those codes if there is any.
