Seems the shop should take some responsibility here. if your pump went out and caused damage they should have informed you of this. engine for this is not cheap. check with jasper engines about a reman they have a good warranty on them. also call around for a used

Red spanner warning light

Brake Light. Make sure you are not driving with hand brake on. Check brake-fluid level. Top off brake fluid if low and make appointment to check brakes. Driving with brake light can be dangerous; deal with this soon. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
ABS (antilock brake system) Light. Indicates either low brake-fluid level, stuck brake caliper or faulty ABS. Check brake fluid and make appointment to get brakes checked. Call tow truck or drive carefully and slowly to shop.
Oil Light. Either engine is very low on oil or there is no oil pressure. Pull over and turn off engine immediately. Check oil level and add oil if low. Turn engine back on to see if light has gone off. If oil light is still on, bad oil pump (no oil pressure) is likely. Call tow truck.
Check Engine Light. Car's computer senses engine problem. Difference in performance may not be noticeable, but make appointment to have car diagnosed. This usually cost around $65-$75 to do. OK to drive. If problem is serious, computer may switch to limp-home (low-power) mode and you won't have option of waiting to bring car into shop.
Air Bag Light. Get air bags checked. Problem could prevent them from activating in accident. OK to drive, but not safe in accident.
Battery Charge Light. Alternator is not charging. OK to drive, but turn off any unneeded electrical devices (radio, heater, defroster) and avoid starting engine more than necessary. Bring car into shop soon to avoid getting stranded. When alternator is not charging, battery loses charge and car stops working.
Emissions Lights (O2 sensor, EGR, check emissions). Depending on car model, these lights may indicate problem with emissions sensor or may light up at certain mileage, usually 60,000 miles (100,000 km). Get sensors checked. OK to drive. If problem exists, car might get poor gas mileage.

The only way to know for certain that you are actually developing oil pressure, but not indicating it is to test the oil pressure with an EXTERNAL gauge. If you do not have one, 80 bucks is MUCH less expensive than any engine repair. I suggest tow it.

'95 cavalier backfired blew out muffler? help

when it backfires there is three things that can cause this water or moisture in the distributor cap or a cracked cap, or if it has a coil pack then mositure on the coils or bad spark plug wires. Fuel pump won't cause a backfire except on two stroke engines. and the other things that can cause a back fire is timing chain, or burnt or bent valves or bad compression rings.

I had someone fix my car and they left metal in the oilpan

Wrong answer!!!!!!!If they broke they fix it.Thats just a number one shop rule even though no one wants to admit there mistakes they must always make customers happy and want to come back for service.If you are one-Hundred % it was there fault they must fix for free.Its just time to mention court even though that might not be what you want to do they usually get right on top of it and fix it.Sounds like its time to find another repair shop...GOOD LUCK and keep us up to date....
