Question about Cars & Trucks
I oiled all the little holes and have oil in pan. Previous owner had it for a while, but couldn't figure out how to use it. When I take the faceplate off I see a looks like a disc and think that may have something to do with it.

You most likely hit a curb, the pan is cast aluminum and will break like glass if you hit a curb, the pan can be changed without removing the engine, it is very time consuming, but it can be done.

Its not the oil relief valve,since it only works when pressure is to high,and even then you dont lose all pressure.. look into the camshaft synchronizer having a broken drive gear at the bottom.they tend to break..working on one now that has this problem,so I know. luck to ya!

I ask that same question about my 2007 and was told that the main reason for the lite oil weight was to give better gas mileage. Still though I never changed because I got over tinkering with the manufactures specs. in my hot rod days. Stay with the 5-20W.

I would have you oil pressure checked. The oil pump or bearings could be going out. The lifter noise on this car usually will go away faster then 5 minutes. I think the noise is lasting a little to long.
