Well, first off if the intake was that bad you would have noticed it before the oil change.

Second, intakes don't make load noises unless there is a serious vaccum leak and then the car would be running horrible.

I would advice you to take it to a dealership and have them look it over and see what is wrong especially while it's under warrenty.

Oil light came on although engine has sufficient light

To see if this is anything that you can repair, drain the oil, change the filter, put new oil back in. If the problem is still present, the oil pump may have failed or the pick up tube has come loose inside the oil pan.

Suddenly, No tail lights, brake lights, turns signal or back up lights At 83000 miles, 6 months ago, replaced head gaskets. 1 week later, service engine soon light came on. Tech said it was an oxygen...

just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

I took my 2005 Dodge Caravan in for an oil change and it is making a knocking noise. I took it back and the mechanic said the oil pump went bad and now the van needs a new engine. Is this correct?

That very well could be-- if you lose oil pressure, this can ruin your engine. You should have seen a red "oil light" indicating that there was a serious problem, to accompany the knocking noise, which could be "rod knock" if you had very low (or no) oil pressure.
Make sure you have someone else verify before giving this guy thousands of dollars.

Oil light, noisy engine

If engine is noisy then you have an actual oil pressure concern.Sending unit only reads the pressure. I would recommend you have an actual oil pressure test done to see what your oil pressure is.You didn't mention what engine you have but rule of thumb is 30 psi at 1500 rpm warm engine.
