Car runs like is running on two celinders oll light is on and it is geting no oil to the top of the motor

Stop driving it immediately. You can have a few things going on. If no oil is getting to the top of the motor then you either have low oil, a blocked passage, spun a bearing or failed pump (sounds like failed oil pump). If you continue to drive it you will overheat the moving parts with too much friction and seize the pistons possibly throwing a rod through the block. This needs to be diagnosed with an oil pressure gauge but do not drive it. Check the oil level first and if good level it needs to be diagnosed further but sounds like the oil pump has failed, hopefully you have parked it before $1000's in damage has occurred.

I have a 2004 F130 4X4 with 5.4L. Yesterday the oil pressure gague bottom out. Check the oil level, a little low, put 2 qt in. The gague bouced up twice then it pinned to bottom. Trun off when pulling into...

I doubt its a bad oil pump, have it diagnosed at a shop that does a lot of Ford repairs or the dealer. If it needs a pump, it needs more than a pump. 2 quarts is very low, dangerous low.

I have a 1995 Camaro and it was stored inside over the winter. I had an oil change done before it was stored. I have been driving it for a couple of months now and yesterday as I was driving the "Low Oil"...

YES. just be sure to keep your oil level checked. the dye will show up under a black light and sometimes on engines that are dirty it helps diagnose where the leaks source is . Sounds like your mechanic is on top of the problem and trying to correctly diagnose it without selling you a bunch of repairs

Replaced water pump twice and still have a leak. all surfaces are clean,good gasket,silicone on both sides of the gasket,bolts and hoses are tight,no visible cracks anywhere.looks like it might be leaking...

I had a difficult coolant leak and was able to identify it by putting some flourescent dye (leak detection dye) into the radiator which glows under black light. You add the small bottle to the radioator, drive the car for a bit and inspect it later using a black light and you can trace the leak back to the exact location because it glows green or yellow under the UV light. Not all auto supply stores sell the stuff but you can get single dose bottles over the internet for very little (mine was about $9 locally). I had a similar problem with an oil leak which was also identified using an oil specific dye additive.

Good luck with it -

Low oil pressure light is on

Until u have a mechanical test gauge hooked up to verify the oil pressure is ok assume it is not a good idea to drive, low oil press will destroy a $4000.00 engine very quickly.
