Oil pressure problem

210K Miles?
Knock for 40K Miles?
Suggest its time to replace the motor.

I would not have flushed the oil with that many miles; but you might have them change the oil and filter with a heavy weight oil if you had 5-30 try 20-30, if you had 10-30 try 20-50.
Stall after the oil change can be a co-incidence but check something was not knocked loose.

Motor sounds like a bunch of Indians trying to get out.

sounds to me like you could have damaged the oil pump, running low on oil can cause numerous things to fail.. possibly spun the rod bearings and they are beating on the crank. I wouldn't start it, but if the noise is in the bottom I would drop the oil pan.

1997 dodge neon(manual trans)- at a stop light my car began to make weird noises it then stalled and all the oil spilled from the bottom of the car it would not turn back on and i had to push it to the...

I'm afraid the prognosis is terminal - the cost of replacing the motor exceeds the vehicles value. I'm certain serious damage occurred deep in the motor and you need to replace it. Oil cannot come out unless there is an exit - mainly a hole in the side of the block or cylinder head, most commonly the block, or a part of the motor made a hole through the oil pan - either way I think your motor is toast.The stall was that part coming off the motor and causing the hole for the oil to exit, which also seized the motor.
Sorry to bring you bad news, but You'd be best served to shop for a new car and sell that one for scrap.

Unfortunately, you've got serious problems. The GM 3.1 and 3.4 engines have a nasty habit of breaking camshafts. For some reason, which I have yet to determine, the cam bearings seize on the cam and the camshaft ends up breaking in half. The engine will continue to run, albeit very poorly since all the cylinders are not working because the rear half of the camshaft, which runs the oil pump, is not spinning.

Camshaft and bearings

There is a very good chance that it is a noisy lifter. They can look and work fine but make noise. Alot of GM cars and trucks end up doing this and there is not anything mechanicaly wrong with them. I would NOT replace the motor because of this. I have never heard of a ticking sound being caused by something in the bottom end of the motor. If it was something in that area you would probably have wrecked the motor by now, or your oil pan would be full of metal shavings.
