Question about 2000 Ford Explorer
When I start my 2000 explorer up in the morning the oil lite is on and lo or no pressure. it will take a little time before it comes up . it is a ohc motor. with the hevey duty oil cooling on it. is this normal drain back time?
YOUR OIL PRESSURE SHOULD COME UP QUICKLY AFTER THE ENGINE IS STARTED. IF THE ENGINE IS CLATTERING THE THE PRESSURE IS LOW AND YOU MUST FIND THE CAUSE OR ENGINE DAMAGE WILL RESULT. IF YOU NORMALLY HAVE GOOD OIL PRESSURE CHECK THE PRESSURE SENDING UNIT. IT MAY HAVE GOOEY OIL DEPOSITS PLUGGING THE PASSAGE. OR, IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO A MECHANICAL GAGE CONNECT IT TO THE OIL PORT AND GET AN MECHANICAL PRESSURE CHECK.
