Gage showing no oil pressure at low rpm


Old oil can do that as it gets too thin, filter blocked.
Wrong grade of oil can also cause that or worn pump/bearings.

Signs bad temp sensor


Bad oil pressure sensor, oil pump, balancer-shaft bearings..
Which grade of oil did you use? Did you try to check the pressure with an oil-pressure gauge?

Well its like i have an oil leak when im running on the freeway my oil pressure goes up and temp goes down but when i stop my oil pressure goes down and my temp goes up???...what could this be a valve...


Valve cover leak (oil) will not cause this problem, what needs to be checked is your radiator cooling fan, more then likely not working, that's why when your going down the freeway it don't over heat, you have air going through radiator, but when at stop, no air going through radiator to cool coolant before it goes back through engine, starts to get hot, and oil will also thin out, and have low oil pressure, check cooling fan's or fan, for voltage, should have voltage at normal oper. temp. about 210 - 220 deg., if you do have voltage and fan are not on, replace fan motor.

My engine won't start.


The oil light began to flicker beacuse of low oil pressure with the lower RPM I expect. Four things for your engine to run: 1, Spark, 2, fuel 3, compression and lastly the timing.
While running at higher RPM how well (or poorly) does the engine run?
This may be as simple as a clogging fuel filter, low pressure = poor fuel stream which = poor performance.
May be the fuel pump failing too.
Other ideas; starved for air, very dirty air filter?
Also corld be crank, cam or MFA sensor too. Sart easy with the fuel filter and work from there.

If I may be of additional help, please let me know.

sounds like the head or head gasket is blown. your cylinders may be getting coolant in them which will not only cause the motor to lockup, but also cause bent rods and valves. check your oil dipstick and transmission dipstick to see if it looks like water or coolant is presant, also check the coolant to see if it smells like gas or has any kind of oil in it, if so, your head is likely blown.

Oil pressure light coming on


check your oil levels,but may well be just low voltage feedback at idle,older fords were notorious for it
