the oil light warns for low oil pressure. meaning you may have enough oil in the car. but its not being pumped around with high enough pressure, this may be because of a bad oil pump, a leak or a blockage
No i wouldn't do that now . Fords are bad but chevys arn't so bad . You likely have a hose that is leaking at a connection or fitting someware . See if you can find where the fluid is comeing from ever if you have to clean all of the hoses and fittings with brake cleaner . If you find its comeing from the pump from the front by the pulley then you need the pump but this is vary light oil and tends to blow around during normal opperation if its on the belt then its likely the pump but if its not then its a connection or fitting that is lower because the fan will tend to push the oil down to the under carrage and drip in several spots on the ground . So find out ware its leaking first it could be a simple fix put a peice of cardboard under it if you have a lot of drips and oil is not on the belt then it could a simple fix like tightening a clamp Good luck with it
those cars are known for intake gasket leak and if it leak, the coolant will some time leak into the engine oil. when the water and oil mix the valve lifter will colapse then there is noise.
yes, you need to get another opinion to see if there is just the valve lifters. good luck!
may have a bad pump, when button is push do you see fluid driping on to the ground? if yes then there a broken line , just watch when it sparys and youll locate the leak, if you hear no noise when pushing button then id say the washer pump motor is no could and also make sure fluid is full and not frozen in bottle. good luck.
Unless you've run it out of engine oil because of the bad leaks , oil leaks are are not a sign of a bad oil pump , what is a sign of a bad oil pump is low or no oil pressure either due to lack of oil for the pump to pick up in the oil sump or either a mechanical failure of the oil pump, in which case you would have some internal damage to your engine. In either case if you plan to keep the car then by all means have the oil leaks investigated and repaired so the the oil stays inside the motor instead of the outside and on the ground making your driveway look horrible...
The fuel pump is located under the turbo on that truck. It is most likley washing sediment/old fluids out of the vally of toyr engine. It is also driven by a push rod that ths cam drives, so the lower pump o-ring may be leaking too. You can change the fuel pump without pulling the turbo. Good Luck
