That is NOT GOOD. Your bottom end is not getting oil, and your engine is on borrowed time, and it's running out FAST. You're either going to have to solve this right now or you're looking at a new engine.

Somewhere, something is not right. Forget the sending unit, if it was faulty, pressure would be good and you'd not hear that knocking. There is indeed no pressure. With new bottom end bearings and a new oil pump, you might want to be in the face of your mechanic and ask why there is no oil pressure. Pick up installed wrong? Pump faulty?
