Default RE: car breaks down while driving


Welcome, and sorry to hear about your problem. Before we get too excited, let me ask you a question:

Often times when an engine stalls out while driving, theowner will report that the oil pressure dropped to zero and they saw all manner of warning lights come on. Those are all the normal warnings you get when your engine stalls out, and are the effect of the failure: they have nothing to do with the cause. Are you sure that the engine is still running when you are seeing the loss of oil pressure?

Lots of possibilities. I would check ign modules first.
