The car has entered into fail safe mode. It wil not allow the engine to rev high but allows you only to get to a mechanic or to get some oil into the engine. What's the level like? Is there any trace of leakeage?

Is a pressure converting element on the block. Can be leak or shot. Or wire harnes problem worst case. If leak you see dripping oil mostly. Had that 2 times on a car.

It could simply be maybe the person changing your oil never reset the light? or you have a oil pressure sensor leaking or not working.
most of the time its someone never reset the oil change light. even before it goes on it goes by mileage, so maybe it didnt go off yet cause you cnahged it a tad early.so noone even tried to reset it.
I guess you could have an oil pressure problem, but thats going the extreme route.. but if nothing else shows that could be a problem.

I hope that you had the proper weight oil installed, at your oil change. If your oil is up to the proper level, and it's rattling ,this is VERY bad. White smoke usually means steam in the exhaust, and that means a blown head gasket. Check your coolant level. I wouldn't drive it anymore......until someone knowledgeable can diagnose it!!!!!

Check the oil pressure wire attached to the gauge usually in the engine compartment. Dirt can interfere with the signal causing a short which will give you the symptoms you describe. Hope this helps
