i just had a rebuilt engine installed in my 1989 toyota pickup, the engine oil gauge is registering low. When we checked the oil it was barely showing up on the dip stick. Is my engine ruined now.

Only if you ran it without oil, a new or reman engine will use oil during the breakin period, so it should be checked daily right along with other fluids like the coolant.

the oil pump is driven off the timing chain, on the timing case....actually Part of the timing case....no oil pressure means there is no oil left in there (leak)...would change the timing chain, sprockets, wear shoe and examine the oil pump (part of the timing case)~
