I have a 1997 Plymouth Neon. It has about 106,000 miles on it. I just had the cylinder head replaced about 200 miles ago. The oil light has come on recently. I checked the oil to see if oil had to be added. I added a quart of oil and the light went off, but then immediately came on again. The engine was not making any noise as far as knocking or pinging as if there was no oil. What could be wrong?

The red oil light is an oil pressure issue.

Have a manual test done to verify the motor is good. It may be just a bad sender

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge if its within specs- if okay replace the oil pressure sending unit-let me know

Thank you. Can I get this done at an Oil Can Henry's, Jiffy Lube or similar shop?

Depends on the kind of work they do. Call and ask.
