1994 pontiac firebird with low oil pressure, the seller states car had a "stuttering" performance and low oil pressure and that the car was parked as to not further damage. I feel confident in my ability to change the oil pump, if thats the problem, but the car has 202k on a 3.4 engine, so what kind of crap can I expect to find...... I guess I mean to say if its not the oil pump, after I have the oil pan off what can I look for and will it be obvious, I mean what do I need to be looking for.
At 202K miles, it's do for a rebuild. low oil pressure means excessive bearing clearances. You'll more then likely need more than just an oil pump.

If I do most of the work myself, can you see me getting out of this for less than 500?
I just had some work done to my 428. almost $3,000.00. $500 won't get you much as far as a rebuild. Personally I'd just get another engine, preferrably low mileage, one you can hear run. be so much quicker too.
