Oil light on can be low to no oil pressure or the sender is faulty. But you said you overheated after all the work on the car. SO maybe a low coolant level, or water pump. etc. Did you pull over and turn off the car as soon as the temp went up? If not and you continued to drive with an overheating car until the engine oil boiled and the car stopped, then it's game over for the engine.
