I was out for a cruise last night and I looked at my gauges and the oil pressure was at 0!! I pulled over and checked my oil, it was a little low so I topped it off (Mobil 1, always used). No Change. I then tried to check the gauge connection and it seemed fine. The engine seemed to make a strange noise so I had it towed home. Does anyone know why under normal driving the oil pressure would just go to 0!! The gauge doesn't move at all.

Any idea on how I can check my oil pressure? Maybe the gauge is bad?

Thanks for the help!

The noise is kind of a weird metally, squeeky noise. Kind of like a belt squeek. But it sounded like a the engine.

I will get a cheep oil pressure gauge forsure. Where do I hook it up?

Where is the location of the oil pressure sending unit? Is it above the oil filter?

How about this idea, take out the distributer and put in a dummy distributer that will only spin the oil pump (powered by an electric drill) and check the oil pressure with the inexpensive gauge I install.
