SOURCE: 95 powerstroke will not start
Check you IAC Idle air control valve, check your EGR valve. If both check out ok. Then make sure that the glow plugs are glowing properly if this is diesel, if this is gas check altornator and spark plugs.

Have you had it checked for codes on the computer, although the check engine light is not on, the truck my have some codes stored in the computer. A common fault for a flame out at speed is the cam positing sensor. there ia a rcall I beleive on these sensors if you have not had it done as of yet, and it will generate a code.
If you are in the US, I understand that if you take you car to an Auto Zone store they will read off the codes for you, once you have the codes then you can plan a course of action.
Other large auto parts outlets may also provide this service as they want your parts business.
Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: oil pressure problem
You oil pressure sending unit has gone bad, it's common to go bad and some even leak oil.
The oil pressure sensor is on the back of the block on the passenger side, you can get to it from the top and not from the bottom. There are (2) switches back there that screw in to the block and you can only see it from the top of the engine. The Oil Pressure Sending Unit is the one wire harness with a green and white strip on it. The other switch has more wires to it.
When you pick up the new sensor, make sure you get the right one. make sure you get the Oil Pressure Sending Unit which sends variable oil pressure and has only one quick connect for the wire connector. The oil pressure switch is the one that only activates the oil light on older engine.
Once you get the right part at Auto Zone for around $9.00, disconnect the wire clip with the green with white strip on it. and use a deep spark plug socket with a extension and u joint to get the sensor out. The sensor comes with teflon tape already and no oil should leak out from the block. It as simple as replacing a bolt and reconnecting the wire connector.
Good luck and hope this helps, take no more then 10 min to do but about 5 hours for the engine to cool off LOL
