Hello, im assuming this is an issue with a no start or it had an engine failure and low oil pressure/the engine is making noise?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Engine not making noise. It was a no start. Also the engine would shut down while his wife was driving. Gauge indicated low oil pressure.
Expert:  HDGENE replied 1 year ago.

Ok need to verify if it has a base engine oil system by checking it with a gauge, the engine uses base engine oil pressure and a high pressure oil pump to convert the base oil to over 500 psi plus to open the injectors. If there is an indication of base engine oil pressure it could be an oil pump or pickup issue. Need to verify base engine oil pressure first make sure it is good.
