The oil pump on the N* is wrapped around the crankshaft snout, inside the front chaincase. It can be replaced from the wheelwell area, but it's pretty labor-intensive. The mechanic needs to follow the GM Service Manual procedure. Crank balancer bolt torque is critical to proper oil pump operation.
If the oil pump went out, did the engine seize ? If so, it's new/rebuild engine time.
