79 300sd no oil pressure
Hey all. I'm new to Mercedes and I have a 1979 300sd. I bought it with 195000 miles on it and it has run great until today. It is almost time for an oil change and I drive long distances regularly, so I checked my oil as usual. Saw it was low and added appropriate amount to bring to the proper level. Upon restarting my car I heard a loud engine knocking, posible lifter? I started to drive the car and pressure went from 45 to 0 and I lost most of my power. The car barely made it onto the car trailer. Any ideas? Any and all help is appreciated.
