Post Need Firebird help!

My girlfriend has a '97 Firebird has the V6. At idle it makes a "ticking" noise and the oil pressure drops and the pressure gauge starts moving with the "ticking". rev the engine or drive it the ticking goes away and the oil pressure comes back up. Any Ideas?? Someone told me the oil pump is going out. Whatchall think??

Either the oil pump, or the bottom end is toast,
but it could be the pressure relief valve, which
is in the oil pump, or it could be that the motor
is out of oil, or could be that the oil is too thin...

There are a lot of "could be"s...
