Sounds like the oil pump failed and your engine is done. Noise and stalling combined with no oil pressure = failed bearings.

not sure if there is no oil pressure the light is just on could be a bad sensor there i do know the car has lots of power when drive at speed just tries to stall or stall when stoped in gear i'm wonding if mabe it could be a leaking head gasket causing a loss of compression
