The only way to tell for sure is to take the sending unit out of the block and put a manual oil pressure guage in its place, then check pressure, one indication though is if the sending unit is leaking oil, then you can also tke the wire off of the sending unit and ground it and unhook it and see what the guage does, hope this helps

Have a gauge hooked up to low pressure fuel pump and it shows it works but high presssure one doesnt

Check to see you have oil up to full on dipstick . The high pressure pump picks up oil at the top level so if oil starts to get to low engine will stop before engine damage . The high pressure pump is what makes the injectors fire . Also check the wires that go thru valve cover some times they burn up and you can smell the burn thru the oil filler cap .

No oil pressure when hot

I am assuming you are going by the oil pressure gauge or warning light on the dash. If so, the first thing to do is have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical gauge to make sure the pressure really is low.
If you are hearing noise in the engine and the pressure really is low, could be a faulty oil pump, clogged pickup screen, or worn bearings.

Oil pressure drop with engine getting hot

You'll want to remove the electrical oil pressure gauge and check the oil pressure with a manual gauge to verify low oil pressure. If the oil pressure tests good with a manual gauge, then you either have a faulty oil pressure sender, or gauge in the dash (I rarely see faulty gauges). If the pressure is still low, suspect worn crankshaft bearings. There is also a possiblity that the screen to the oil pump is clogged. This can be visually checked by removing the oil pan and cleaned.

I have a 5.8L V8 that loses oil pressure at highway speeds and I am wondering the possible causes?

this can be cause a couple of ways you can have a faulty gauge ,a faulty oil sending unit,oil pump (you can check the pump by connecting a oil pressure test gauge to the engine were the sending unit comes out ,this will tell you if the pump and sending unit is working properly) or the engine is getting worn out, as parts in the engine ware out the tolerances get larger and larger and oil pressure will decrease, most of the time when you first start it on a cold day the oil pressure will be fine and as the engine gets hotter the oil pressure will decrease ,if it has a lot of miles i would say the engine and or pump is gettting tired and installing a pump can be costly,in that case i would suggest using a heavier weight oil if you use 10w30 try 20w50

This problem in a Ford is caused by a defective fuel gauge sending unit inside the fuel tank, the tank must be removed to replace the sending unit.

The gauge indicates pressure, not oil level. Sounds like worn bearings or pump. lifters getting louder indicate starving from low pressure as well.

you have either a weak oil pump or a faulty sensor check the leads on the oil sending unit and make sure they are not frayed. if they are not take it off and have it bench tested if it passes replace oil pump...please rate this
