They may be right. Too much clearance on the bearings is where you lose oil pressure, or so I've heard. If you bought it used, someone may have once run old, dirty oil in it too long, or let it run low. You could drop the oil pan and check the bearings or replace them.

I have a 05 F-350 6.0L turbo diesel No start. Replaced FICM. Checked high presure oil pump. Changed all sensors. Am lost. Next step is to put a oil presure Gage on high presure oil pump. System looked...


Check for fuel pressure at the primary fuel filter. there if you move the plug for the fan clutch you can see an auxillary plug on the filter housing facing forward and to the driver side. You should have 40+psi with key on. another way to check the pump is to listen for it to cycle on for 10 seconds or so after key on. Also check for lubricating oil pressure on the cluster gauge and then high pressure oil with a manual gauge. its needs to see around 600psi oil pressure to signal the injectors to fire. best way to check all of these is with a scanner that has data reading, which will also tell you if you have a bad ficm, ecm or sensor connection.

Check gages light coms on and the oil presure gage gose down when engien is warm and in drive or revers


Replace your oil pressure sender and see if the dash warning lights turn off. If after changing the oil pressure sender you still have oil pressure warning lights on, you may have to replace your oil pump in your oil pan.

03 gmc envoy with 5.3 140000 miles. Oil pressure reading fluxuates between 0 and 40. When problem first started pressure read 80. When vehicle was new it stayed at midpoint (40) vehicle has plenty of oil....


There may be a loose wire or the gauge or sending unit may be going bad. The first thing I would do is to hook up a temporary oil pressure gauge, not using the old one at all. With this watch gauge while driving and see what readings you get. If the readings still jump around you have a pump that is getting weak and failing, If that is the case the pump should be replaced, but with high milage you may consider rebuilding the entire engine. If the readings stay normal start checking for a loose wire at gauge or sender. Then check sender, then gauge and replace as needed.

Hello;
Before you start to pull the crank out, check your oil pressure via an independent gage. Then if you have around 25-30 psi gage, drain some oil out. Put a quart of Marvel Mystery Oil in and top off . Change oil filter. Drive the truck for a few miles. Change the oil and filter. This should start to break away the sludge that is built up.

You may need to do this up to 10 times before you can go 3000 miles on an oil change.
Now if the oil pressure is extremely low, yes you can change the crank in chassis. I have done it in a pinch before. It is much easier to pull the engine and put a crank in. If the crank is bad, you also have a rod that is bad. You also need to clean all the parts or emminent failure will occur.
I would also change the knock sensors on your truck as well. Hope this helps. Rate me high.
Thanks;
