Check the oil pressure sending unit wire. You may have knocked the wire off when stuck or getting out. Do not run it if it is making any tapping or other noises as it may be an actual pressure problem.

Use a mechanical gauge to check the pressure. It it reads zero you have a real problem.

Did you bend the oil pan you may have restricted the oil from getting to the oil pump
