Question about 2004 Ford Taurus
Started with a knocking noise and low oil pressure light going on, then knocking stopped within a few minutes. Low oil pressure light resumed and other lights came on in the dash, followed by losing all power, acceleration, pulled to side of road. Waited a few minutes, started again. Continued drive home about 6 city blocks with low oil pressure light on and lost power again. Towed to be serviced and told, not alternator, it was the engine, and registered as no oil, had oil we checked before tow. Mechanic put 5 quarts of oil in it,no apparent leaks. Car started smoking real bad, had not done so before. Had to give it a jump and said could be seals, not sure but problem with engine. Been sitting for 3 days, started right up and so did the low oil pressure light. Should I have someone check to see if oil sending unit, or check oil pressure? Do you think engine has to be rebuilt?This car has around 82,000 miles and babied.

If you ran out of oil and you now can hear knocking sound comming from the engine then it time to get it checked by a mechanic

SOURCE: No Oil Pressure
did you check the synchronizer assy? It is the piece with the cam sensor on top in place of the distributor. These have a tendency of breaking. It also drives the oil pump.

Yes, the oil pump is accessible when the oil pan is removed and at those miles it would be a good preventive maintenance idea to replace the oil pump.
Secondly, you should shop around for a better price. $332.00 seems a little high.
With an oil pump replacement, the pan gasket and the oil change should be included in the price, seeing as how those items are removed anyway.
As with any auto repair, its buyer beware. the crooks count on the fact that you don't know what is involved with the repair, or else you would have done it yourself.

Testimonial: "Thank you. I have spoken with 2 other mechanics who said the same thing regarding the oil pump. It's being looked at. So I'll post more once I know"
Removal and Installation
NOTE: Inspect integral oil pan gasket for cuts or damage that may cause leaks. Install a new gasket if necessary.
NOTE: Fill the engine with clean engine oil.
To install, reverse the removal procedure.

No if the oil light has flickered you have oil pressure loss some time just belive the sensor do help us out. lifter do not cause oil pressure loss pressure is built in the rotation of the crankshaft. The knock under the plenum will point you to that cylinder that is affected, (main bearing) as for a 1995 the injectors can only cause a misfire but no knocking noise,will they honor the warranty
