I don't know, it's hard to say with so little info, but the first place I would check would be the fuel filter, then the fuel pump.

If the oil pressure gauge is correct, my guess would be worn engine bearings and / or oil pump.

1996 Ford 300 six cylinder loses oil pressure when engine warms up

first you will have to say what the oil pressure is cold, idle and 2000 rpms and then hot idle and 2000 rpms before a decision to advise about a rebuild can be made
there are many reasons oil pressure can drop and not all require a rebuild

Yes, most likely your thermostat is bad and your car is overheating. Its a simple job and even for your vette it shouldnt be more than 20 bucks for a new thermostat. Hope this helps! (rate if useful)

RPMS drop wants to stall somtimes and hesatates in

I'd be curious to the miles on the engine, possible worn rings, poor compression. Start with basics first, be certain there are no vacuum leaks, next look to your fuel system; possible failing fuel pump (low fuel pressure) dirty fuel filter? (I'd start with the filter first, cheapest fix if it is the issue) other concerns could be injectors, plugged or failing (poor fuel spray) run a fuel systems cleaner for several tanks see if it will improve; but change that fuel filter first. Also the volts dropping off would make sence if the engine RPMs drop way off, too slow of a speed the alternator will make little if anything.
I hope this may have helped,

Iwas driving home and stopped at a red light, when it turned green i drove off and it got up to 40mph then it dropped to nothing. My rpms still work though.

Sounds like a transmission.

How many miles, when was transmission filter & fluid last changed?

If you can do it yourself, for less than $20 bucks probably, change transmission filter & fluid and see if that corrects problem, otherwise find a transmission shop you trust. Most all will tell you it needs to be rebuilt at big bucks, tough economy, they need to make some money.

The sweet smell is your engine coolant,check for a leak under the hood,look for green fluid,Have your catalyst checked,for the other problems,and your fuel presure checked,or change the fuel filter.Either of these should help a little.
