Pontiac Firebird Formula: I have a 99 v6 firebird, and am having

Customer Question

I have a 99 v6 firebird, and am having problems with it dying on me at about 40-45mph. With check gauges light coming on due to my oil pressure gauge dropping. My oil gauge will fluctuate while driving as well and drop to the lowest point at idle. I do have an oil leak from the oil pan gasket. But have had it for a while. What could be causing my oil pressure gauge to fluctuate and car do die while driving

It does nothing else. Drives fine. I do have a p0420 code but that is the catalytic converter and o2 sensors. It doesn't die on me everyday, only did it twice within about 2 months. Both times between 40 and 45 mph. And it didn't start fluctuating until the second time it died on me. Normal is 60-70. Abnormal is at idle or average speed at 30-50 pressure. That's when I know it's about to die.

My Battery gauge fluctuates a little bit as well. But not a lot, between 13 and 16 v. I seem to have a good connection And no corrosion.
