What dose it mean if I'm driving and my oil pressure drops to zero and my truck shuts off and won't start back up?

Whatever you do don't try to start it again, you will only do more damage than has already been done, if any. Either your oil pump has failed, or low-- very low-- on oil, or some oil passage is clogged, filter clogged (no flow)

Did some reading and in the 1994-'97 Dodge Ram the distributor is driven by the oil pump. If the pump fails it won't run..and that's a good thing
