If your truck is a four wheel drive check the oil filter adapter where the filter screws on, the o'ring can start to leaking.

Car is dumping oil at front making a sqealing noise like its an oil pump


first check fluid levels --power steering--oil--transmission --if power steering low or out pump will sequel look for blown hose or seal----if oil is low or empty than look under around oil filter [hole damaged or blown gasket ] spraying on belt causing sequel if not filter than trace oil leak possible oil pan damaged or gasket crack or head or valve gasket-----if trans low or empty look at pan- gasket ,or damaged check trans cooling lines to radiator-----these are your leak areas under hood your oil pump is internal in oil pan and you usually dont hear it

Lost of oil possibly from the oil pan gasket, amount loss is 4 quarts in less than 15 minutes.


Are you sure it's leaking from the oil pan? That is a lot of oil to lose in a short time. I would check that the oil filter is tight and sealed rather than the pan gasket.

The oil pressure sending unit screws into the engine block so you will need to look between the oil pan and the head.I suggest that you try tightening your oil filter first.
