Question about Cars & Trucks
Locate the sensor for the oil light. It should be on the back of the block roughly in the center, I believe. Either T into it or replace it with a mechanical oil pressure guage. This will likely tell you that your oil pressure is low, especially when cold.New pressure is 30-35 PSI. My suspicion is that you are below 20 PSI which would be normal for high mileage or abuse by a previous owner. If the pressure is down near this,20PSI, then it is time to start looking at either a rebuild or replace. You could prolong it by going to a heavier oil, either 15W40 or maybe even 20W50. They will provide extra lubrication and make the noise go away. If you live in a cold climate, I would suggest a block heater with these oils.
