Question about 2001 Ford Expedition
My 2001 ford expedition, when you cold start it the oil pressure goes up like it is suppose to but when it gets arm I loose all oil pressure and it just goes up and down until it has no pressure. I talked with the dealer and they are telling me that the pvc valve malfuntioned and pumped all the oil out of my car. It has never smoked or used any oil, is this possible?
I've not heard that a malfunctioning pvc valve could allow most ALL of your oil to leave the engine. The PVC replacement is a regular maintenance item over the lifetime of the vehicle. It is important to check your oil level regularly, like at every gas fillup. Could it be possible the engine was already very low on oil?
Obviously you should change out the pvc valve immediately, change the oil and filter in the vehicle and check the drained oil for metal scrapings and other signs of damage.
My final suggestion is that you have a trusted mechanic check it out.
