Fromwhat you describe, it kind of sounds like you may have done some damage to the internals of the engine. The best thing to do is put a mechanical guage on the engine and see if you get better pressure as it could be a sending unit, but don't get your hopes up. The knocking noise may have been your lifters getting low on oil andthen when they got the oil they quit knocking or ticking. So try a mechanical guage first and see what you get if it's jsut as bad as the dash then have a pro look at it.
