3 camshaft sensors on

Trying to help out my buddy that hurt his jeep a few days ago. He went up the cliff that only he can make up 3x, in the video below when he made it to the top and was at 3,500 RPM with his 5 speed. Turned off the jeep and then went to turn it back on and it had a clicking sound in the block check gauges light was on and check engine. 3 camshaft codes came up and also the oil pressure wasn't moving at all. I know the piston is slapping the valves, we went down 5 miles and the jeep shut off and the clicking was getting louder. We pulled the oil cap and smoke was coming out more then it should. Before I rip into his jeep I'm hoping you guys would know what's happening so I can get it up and running sooner. We are shipping out to afghanistan soon and any info would be great.

P.S. the hummer H3T in the video is mine, I don't care what anyone drive as long as we have fun I'm happy.

He may have 'tapped' his bellhousing and messed up the crank sensor reluctor ring on the flywheel.

Check oil pressure with an oil pump pressure gauge hooked up to where the oil pump gauge sender is screwed into the block.

He ran that eengine at a high back angle for some minutes. Maybee the engine did not 'like' that too much.

DID you crawl under this Jeep to look for physical damage?

Do you know what was good about the good old days? I wasn't good, And I wasn't old!

Senators and Congressman should wear uniforms like NASCAR drivers so we could identify their corporate sponsors....
