1997 Buick Lesabre 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

while driving my car my gauge for the oil went to nothing. I turned my car off and got to the shoulder of the road. My oil is full. I have replaced the oil pressure switch - no help. Gauge still not moving now car when started sounds very rough. Any suggestions?

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical gauge-could be an oil pump issue with pressure relief valve/engine bearings

Soudns like tis not a faulty with the sensor or sending unit.

Sounds like something is bad with the pressure and since it is runnign rough I WOULD STOP RUNNING IT ASAP UNTILL YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE OIL PUMP.

Normally if the guage is bad it wont mkae loud noise such as you are observing.
