My cars oil pressure use to idle around 60. For some strange reason it has dropped all of a sudden. It is now around 25, causing the car to run bad and stall out. Please help

First of all, oil pressure won't make the car run bad, You probably have a carburator problem, dumping fuel. The excess fuel has thinned out the oil causing low pressure, get the carb checked out, get your oil changed. If you pull out the dipstick and smell gas, then you definitely have either a carb problem of fuel pump is leaking into crankcase. Good Luck, Lou
