Failed cam syncronizer. Was there a squeaking? I'm almost positive that is the cause. if the fails it stops the oil pump from working and from there its failure. It can seize then unseize and make it seem like failure didn't occur. That's why I'm adamant about others changing their syncro when the first sign of trouble appears. When I pulled my syncro it would seize under certain conditions when I bench tested it.
