If anyone has I'm sure they've also seized their motors shortly after. If your oil pressure gauge (read: idiot light) is going all the way down when you stop or slow down, you probably have a bad sending unit or the connection to the sending unit is loose/corroded/damaged. Check it out. It's by the oil filter and has 1 wire going to it.

Have you checked to be sure the oil is full?

mine used to shudder when at idle at lights. It would drop real low and bounce really fast. Id give it a little gas and it would go back up and clear up. After I changed out motors (and along with that all sensors) it stopped. Maybe I got to it before it locked up. But it did it for many years with no other symptoms.
