Question about 2000 Ford Econoline
You are losing oil pressure! Don't run the engine without the proper repairs!!
Check the oil level, if it's in the safe range, then it's possible that the oil pump is not working(this is a major deal, and could be a sign of other problems...if there's something plugging up the screen on the pickup tube, it could mean that something's coming apart inside the motor. I would drain the oil, and run it through a strainer to check for metal or plastic particles in the oil that could be from pistons, rings, timing gears... but dont' continue to run your engine without the proper oil pressure! the guage flickering means that it's dropping to unsafe pressure! a solid light means you've lost oil pressure.
... If there's no oil on the dipstick, add oil 1 quart.. and then recheck... add more as needed, but don't overfill.
