    I took my car for a spin over the weekend and as soon as I stepped on it the oil light came on. I turned the car off right away hopeing that doesnt hurt the turbo, but more worried about the motor. i got the car home and call a friend of mine that had an oil gauge not installed yet. after convincing him to let me hook it up, the pos plastic tube didnt even get a drop of oil in it when i started the car. I did notice the car squelled, kinda of like the alternater belt was slipping. thats what i thought it was. Could this be anything other then the oil pump went out, and would an aftermarket crank pully cause it to go out?

    is the oil light on?
    check the oil pu than you have a cloged pickup, spun bearing, or 1 of 20 problems

    Yes the oil light was on. the squeel was only for like 1 second then it went away, before the oil light came on. then the light came on later. the motor sounded fine when i satarted it. you guyz really think its gone? How should I go about testing it. before i pull it apart.
