Lori, Lori.... lecture coming: learn how to use a dipstick, for your and your truck's sake. No offense, please? If it was that low, it might have a device that shut if off tp prevent it from destroying the engine. However I do NOT know that for a fact because its a 1998, some vehicles have that, some not. 14 years ago, and it that is less than half of what should be in there. It's not seized if it turns over, that's a good sign. Hopefully somebody else in the forum here will see this that knows if it has an oil-pressure kill switch (when that low you lose oil pressure because there is not enough in the pan for the pump to pick up) and maybe it can be re-set.
