Need quick help!!!

Ok car ran just fine never had any problems with it running yet. But I just went to leave on lunch and my car won't start? It will continuously crank over but never start??? I looked at my gauges and everything looked fine but oil pressure I notice its not reading any oil pressure.

When I went to start it the first time the gauge said normal pressure the the needle dropped and so now I have no oil pressure when I try to turn it over??? Note last night I noticed my fuel gauge was getting stuck? It read lil less 3/4 tank, then slowly built up to full tank. Note I also noticed that she has been consuming a lot of fuel lately...

I thought you said it won't start? So how can u see the oil pressure? Well any who .......... Fuel, spark and air! The three elements required to run a engine. Start looking at the three to figure what you're not getting. Good luck!

Yah I think your right but yes got fuel. It's gotta be something simple because it ran just fine and always has. That's why it just has my mind blown...

Check the fuses under the dash. Other than that im sorry to say its either of 2 things ....... oil pressure sending unit or oil pump

You know I didn't think about fuses because I notice I had a tail light out and no cruise I forgot all about that...

Reset your fuel pump relay. In the trunk in the drivers side inside the interior panel. I bet that's it.

Yeah check the pump switch. As for the oil pressure, you might have a bad oil pressure sensor. They're about 12 bucks at autozone. Looks like this. At least for a 98 gt
