You could have a bad oil pump, if the engine was ticking it wasn't getting any oil pressure. You need to get a manual gauge and flex line, take out the sensor and put the gauge in the hole and see if the pump has pressure. I wouldn't drive or run the vehicle until I checked this, I can damage the engine with no oil pressure.

That depends on what year auto you have if its a newer model the check engine light will come on then you need it checked for a code witch will tell you if its an older model (before computers) your oil indicator light will be on (oil pressure makes light go off)
