the oil pump is at the bottom of the oil pan~ ....guess the shaft could break...inspect, if you need to drop the pan and install a new gasket to do so...but I think that you need to inspect your oil pump...I can remember I installed a "heavy duty" oil pump on my Impala 400 rebuild and was faced with all kinds of oil fact there is a spring inside the pump so as NOT to put too much pressure out there....YES...check that pump...need to put a new gasket on the pan ....when you do~ report back with your success~
