I wouldn't until you pull the oil dipstick and confirm that the oil is full. The may not have put the drain plug or oil filter back on correctly and all your oil has leaked out!! HTH. -Jim

This could be a bad oil pressure sensor,or wrong weight oil causing this.

If it is sensor it would be ok,but you may need to have the pressure checked to make sure that is the true issue or could risk damage to engine,if oil pump is bad it will hurt the engine to run it that way.

I wouldn't drive it. Have it towed and have them check oil pressure to confirm.

No- if I said Yes and your engine blew up, what would you think of me?! (and I am so sensitive)
