does any body know of oil pump problems with the gen 5 camaros? heard valvetrain clatter and then saw low oil pressure turn engine off message. Car is currently in for service and I am frantically awaiting the diagnosis. In some blogs online I have read that there is a TSB out from chevy and just looking for any info on this problem

Hadn't heard anything myself but since it's in service now they will fix it.

Per GM service information minimum oil pressure is 6 psi hot @ idle.
