It sounds like no oil is getting to the engine. DO NOT START IT UNTIL WE DETERMINE WHAT MIGHT BE MIGHT BE THE PROBLEM! First, was this a problem prior to changing the oil? Also, is the engine oil full to the level indicated on the dip stick (betwen 4.5 and 6 quarts of oil)? If so, is the oil filter tight and not leaking?
Many times, by accident, the old oil filter's O-ring gasket comes off the filter and sticks to the engine. When you replace the new filter, it has two o-rings which will cause a major leak and no oil pressure.
Let me know what you find.
