My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
The oil pump does sound like it has failed or there is an issue with the cam or crank bearings needing replaced as these will cause this.The other issue is sludge build up in the engine oil pan or the oil pick up tube being sludged up.
These will all need checked to locate the cause and then repaired from there to correct it.
Thanks Pete
