SOURCE: Car quits running after you drive it for about 10 to 15 miles. Let it set for about one hour and it will start up and run for about the same time again. Car will turn over but will not start.

Check these couple of things,
1) fuel filter
2) on your distributor you will have an ignition module with two wires going to it, when these are failing they over heat and shut the car down until they cool off.
3) check that your fuel lines are not collapseing
4) on your fuel ( gas ) tank you have a line that is actually a vent be sure that it is not plugged.
I hope that this helps you and that you will take the time to rate this information, if you need further assistance let me know.
Good luck

SOURCE: no/low oil pressure, high engine temp

I think you have a bad ground on your engine gages...but, more importantly, have your oil pressure checked by a mechanic.  If it is indeed only 20 pounds the engine is sadly on it's last legs.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

SOURCE: car runs great then stops like its starving for gas, let it sit for couple hours then it starts up again

Check the ignition module, and fuel pressure when the trouble is present. Those are the two things on Neons that cause this problem

Never seen a oil pump lock up like that but,i tell you what if it is possible run a ground wire from your battery to your motor it could be with jumper wires and then rum if it does not turn off then your good.Also most fords have shorts in a wiring harness that goes around your wheel weld possibly that or the ones that go from your transmission on the firing wall and passes near the muffler.

1990 5.8, 74000 miles well maintained. Oil preasure drops off

Why are you running 10 - 40 weight oil. You might want to rethink this. As the miles go up the ware on parts goes up. So I would recommend a 5 - 20 or 5 - 30 high mileage oil. If the oil pump is that new and working properly then this will help with the pressure.

I have a 98 explorer and had a similar problem. It wound up being bad spark plug wires. So I changed them and the spark plugs while I was at it. It ran great and still does. I'm not sure if that's your problem I would need more information.

All your gauges are working. The gas gauge Is also working. When you fill it, you will fill over the limit the fuel level switch will go by a couple of gallons. So the gauge will not drop for a few miles. until you use up the excess fuel

Oil light comes on and beeps

Changing oil can't hurt. When was the last time you had it changes?How many miles on that engine?Changing approximately ever 3,000 miles is common practice. The engine oil light and the automatic transmission are two seperate problems.     Engine oil light come on because the sensor reads a low oil preasure.If the engine is not worn then the light can be caused by the sensor getting cloged up (from dirty oil ) and not reading the preasure correctly.
