Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
You are going to need to remove the oil pan and clear the pump pickup screen. After replacing the pan, put one gallon of marvel oil and one quart of kerosene in place of the engine oil. remove the distributor and make an extension for an electric drill so that you can drive the oil pump with the drill (there should be a hex drive rod that fits into the end of the distributor) Run the drill to circulate the solvent, then let it sit for a few hours. Run the drill again then drain the pan. replace the filter and fill the pan with the correct amount of cheap oil. After replacing distributor, start engine, check oil pressure..If good, continue running for about a half hour. Change oil using good quality oil and add more marvel oil (no more than 1quart) Afterward, you can drive about 1,000 miles, then change oil and filter again and resume regular change intervals. I know this is an elaborate procedure but I have done it many times with good results. Providing the lack of oil when you first started the engine has not damaged anything, you should be OK.
