The car will start but has little power when moving and doesnt sound right. It kind of sounds like a go cart when its running now. The oil pressure gauge is also reading zero while it is running.

Hi illini90,

Low power, oil pressure and abnormal noises indicates a possible fault with the engine and lubricating system. Possibly a faulty oil pump.

Did you check the oil level?

The oil pump is driven by the counter balance shaft drive belt and I believe the belt has failed. You would need to remove the timing belt cover to inspect..
