Oil leak

There's a pretty good chance that there will be no engine damage. Last summer my Escort started to lose oil pressure, as indicated by the warning light coming on. I drove it for a couple days until I investigated whether it was a faulty gauge or true oil pressure loss.

I found there was virtually no oil pressure nor flow at higher rpm, and then found the oil pickup screen clogged. After correcting the problems, the car's been running great ever since.
