My check engine light came on and the oil pressure gauge fell to zero. There is no oil loss observable and now the engine makes a slight ticking noise. This happened a couple days ago and the oil gauge flickered and went back to normal, but now it registers zero pressure even though there's oil. What could cause this?

Either a blocked screen at the pick up tube, or a weak pump, or worn engine bearings, causing pressure loss.
