Please help me...

I have a 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme SL with a 3100 SFI V6 engine. When I start it, it shakes really bad and sounds like it's going to die and sometimes does. The oil pressure light comes on, too. Can you please tell me what the problem(s) are or tell me where I can look to solve the problem(s). Thank you!

If the oil pressure light comes on while it's running and the shaking and banging you hear is actually knocking, the motor is wasted.

Has the car been maintained? Is the crankcase full with clean oil? When's the last time the car saw any service?
