yes due to unsteady lubrication your parts are heating up and causing to much friction your best bet is to replace the oil pump and you can also make sure your coolant is strong enough to help with keeping your engine cool
If the place where the dipstick for the oil is comes out of the engine it will cause an oil leak. The engine might not be able to build up enough pressure to keep running either on the 1984 Cutlass Supreme. It should be replaced.
Sorry, disregard this question, I didn't word it properly.
It will, if it causes the fuel mixture to be out of range.
Cause low pressure oil pump
When the fuel in an engine cylinder ignites prematurely or unevenly to cause power fluctuations and a "knocking" sound. usually occurs when an engine is very how or improperly timed.
There are several things that can cause your 1988 Cutlass supreme to stall out while driving down the road. The most common cause is a malfunctioning fuel pump.
Engine knocking can be caused by numerous things. Having the incorrect spark plugs, carbon deposits on the cylinder walls, and being low on engine oil may all cause a knocking sound.
can you elaborate? engine noise? stationary/moving? ticking, tapping or a definite knocking?
Bad bearing or rod
Yes, fouled spark plugs can cause engine shaking, and loss or power. I'm not sure about knocking but I'd guess that too.
Having a bad rod bearing could cause a truck to make a loud knocking noise and shake when driving at high speeds. The engine having a coolant leak or an engine timing problem could also cause the knocking noise.
A bad harmonic balancer can cause a knocking noise. The harmonic balancer doesn't actually produce the noise, but it can cause the noise in the engine.
no installig a starter wrong will not cause engine knocking. all that will do is maybe short fuses, heat up wires, ruin your starter, or melt wires. knocking isn't electrical it is mechanical like lifters, pistons, valves, things like that
Replace ignition module (under the distributor cap)
A bad rod bearing
Running too lean.
Flooding in a 1994 3.1 liter Cutlass engine could be from a faulty fuel pump. The spark plugs may also be fouled.
nope, bad head gasket..
It may be map sensor but engine knocking cause of another reason. You should check your spark plug , I.S.C valve , Injector and engine Compressor. thanks It may be map sensor but engine knocking cause of another reason.

maybe the carberator i dont know im not a machanic or anything
I would recommend taking it to a mechanic and have them listen to it. Everyone's definition of "knocking" is slightly different. Try not to drive it for too long; engine knocks can usually cause pretty severe damage to an engine.
It could be the cause of the knock only if the gasket was bad and leaked out almost all the oil.
