It's pretty easy to get the oil pans off of these cars. I agree with everyone who answered and would not drive it anymore. Would check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge and then drop the oil pan to check the screen on the pickup tube. I own both a 1.8 and a 2.0 and have had the oil pans off both with ease. Unlike a lot of engines the front and rear seals are above the oil pan so there is no risk of making either of the two leak by pulling the pan. If the oil light is just winking there is a good chance that nothing is damaged. But if you continue to drive it with the oil light on it will kill the engine.
