Found out yesterday my oil pump is going bad. I want to know if this has happened to anyone and if so how much did it cost. I just need my baby to last until April when the TDI comes out and I can get a new car. Anyone please help.

Are you sure its the pump? Have heard issues exist with intake screens plugging up. Pumps fine, just cant suck oil. If it is the pump, dealer>$1000, nondealr $600 or $700. Basically 4-6 hrs labor + parts

very very low, as in less than 30psi at idle?
Again - clogged intake screen causes low pressure.
So would worn main bearings, i.e. engine rebuild time.
