Default Oil light came on, went to pull over, car stalled

2000 cavalier z24

got about 160k on it.

so went ot sell my spare car. dude was going to buy it and we started driving it back to the cities form where it was (100 mile trip or so) and we got maybe 40 miles and the oil light came on, then sputtered, power loss, and then eventual stall (engine killed). opened hood and there was steam coming out, was a white smoke per say. we couldnt find any major leaks of anything, checked oil it was full according to the dipstick. so we tried ot start it again, it tried to starts, sputtered kinda made what sounded like a clunk or tick and didnt start. so we pushed it to a safe part of the p[arking lot we parked at. and tried to start it again, this time it fired, sputtered then killed.

so to recap.

40 mile trip
Oil light came on
loss of power
stalled
wont start back up


so my dads going to get it now in the morning and hes goign to look at it. few things we thought it could be was the catalytic converter or the Crank position sensor. but idk if either of those would make the oil light come on? and make it smoke? im just confused anyhelp will be appreciated....

A plugged converter would cause a severe loss in power, and would only cause the car not to start if it were entirely plugged, which I doubt happened that quickly, a crank sensor to my knowledge is only used along with a cam position sensor in most cars for start up, and referencing the no.1 cylinder, so even if it failed it shouldn't cause the car to stall, but not 100% on that for a cavalier. what were your engine temps like when this happened? any hotter than normal?

99% chance the oil pump failed..
if i was a plugged up converter the car would run like shit,.,.have no power at all
the converter itsself would be red hot and it would smell like rotten eggs..
the GM quad 4 (2.4) were widly known for bad heads and cheap oilpumps
ive owned 3 quad 4s and neither of them lived past 150k lol ive seen a couple 2.4s with 200k plus but they always had routine work done

My assumption also would be head gasket or oil pump.
