hello all. I have a 2006 nissan frontier and am having problems.

I was driving along...all was fine....oil light flickered on and truck lost power....I pulled over, truck stalled and wouldnt' start.
I had it towed to garage... left it for the weekend. and on the monday started it, it seemd to run fine but oil pressure seemed very low.
I had the oil was very dirty,
Truck will now start and run for a few mins and then will making a ticking/knocking sound.

A few things come to mind but I'm at a loss? oil pump? plugged oil pick up in oil pan?

any help or suggestions would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Ticking or knocking sound in my old 1995 hardbody meant the oil was getting a bit low. It happens when you have a slow leak on your drainpan that costs 50 times more to fix than buying an extra quart of oil each year to top off with. Haven't owned my Fronty long enough to notice any oil problems alas.
