it is probably NOT the oil pump. they very seldom go bad. Get another opinion from a mechanic that is not trying to rip you off. I would suspec/t a plugged fuel line or fuel filter before a bad oil pump based on what yiu described.

Check the oil level. When you turned into your driveway, a low oil level may have left the oil pump pickup tube uncovered.........then, with no oil to pump, you get zero oil pressure.....with no oil pressure the computer would cut the fuel flow and kill the engine. If it's knocking, it's probably "terminal" already.

The motor is junk. Don't bother putting any money into it, an oil pump will not fix this engine.
