low oil pressure and engine light

Asked by Jun 26, 2017 at 01:43 PM about the 2006 Ford Taurus

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My car was running just fine. I was travelling home from work when low oil pressure light/message came on. Shortly after my car lost power and died, and engine light came on. The car starts, idles, and runs, but sounds terrible/rough, almost similar to a diesel engine sound.
