2000 Dodge Intrepid

Our 2000 Dodge Intrepid has 50,000 miles on it. Recently the oil light came on and the car stalled. We pushed it into a parking lot and had it towed. At the garage, they drained the oil, cleaned the oil lines, and changed it three times. When they drained it, they said they found metal chips in it and a few more the second time around. After the third flush, no metal was present. We were told that the engine might last or might not. Better to trade it in. We haven't driven it since then (about a month) Today I started it, warmed it up and backed out of the driveway. Before i got out, the oil light was on again. Is the engine really shot or could it be a bad oil pump? Or what else can it be? What are your thoughts?
Thanks,
Joe

That metal that came out is telling you something. If it stalled because of lack of lubrication it was a waste to change the oil in it. The engine needs to be torn down and rebuilt.
