I have a 1997 Chevy Lumina 3.1 with sudden oil pressure (as in none) It was running fine & when I came to a stop to back in to my drive way it died. I restarted it & it barely had any RPMs & not even enough power to back up the curb. The oil light was on & there was valve train clattering noise (upper cylinder noise) Yes the oil level is fine, 250,000 miles on original motor. Could it be the oil pump? Any ideas?
2nd question: & probably not related to the zero oil pressure, for the past year I have noticed oil in the cooling system, not much but slight. The pan oil is fine (not milky at all) Am perplexed on this matter also?
