Question about 2001 Ford Expedition
ON COLD START THE OIL PRESSURE GAUGE DROPS TO 0 FOR 1 SECOND THEN BACK TO NORMAL. THEN ABOUT 5 SECONDS LATER DOES IT AGAIN. DOES THIS ABOUT 5 TIMES, BUT THEN AFTER ENGINE IS WARM IT STOPS AND GAUGE IS READING NORMAL.
Make sure you are using a genuine Ford oil filter. The Ford filter has pressure valves in it to keep the oil where it belongs. Make sure you are using the proper weight of oil.
If the oil and filter are proper, it sounds like the oil pump pickup is clogged or there is excessive play in the crank bearings. The engine is running dry on oil because it is not pumping up until the oil is circulating completely through the engine.
