Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I got my oil changed at an auto shop.  As I was driving home, the oil can light came on.  It flickered and beeped constantly as I drove.  When I press the clutch and coast, the light takes a rest and is quiet, but as soon as I press the gas, it starts again.  I don't know if something got messed up when the oil got changed?  Is there anything I can check to try to figure this out?

NOT GOOD... Chances are it is beeping because the oil pressure is not correct (that is why it goes off when coasting). Could be a number of things, but unless you want a VERY costly repair... Have it towed to your mechanic ASAP.
