First of all, check the oil pressure sending sensor it may be bad. next make sure it is full of oil. if its not the sensor, and it has plenty of oil, it has to be the oil pump or the pump screen is clogged up. run a mechanical test to see if you have any oil pressure. go to any auto parts store and they will tell you how to do this.

Check your oil pressure gauge sender first. It might be the pump but often they wear down gradually. It might also be the pressure relief valve spring. Most likely it is the oil pick-up pipe in the sump. Take the pan off and inspect for crud blocking it. If clear it will be very easy to check the pump. The pump vanes are driven directly so any free rotation would indicate a (rare) pump failure.

Sure... but be careful....just because the gauge on your dash says you have or do not have oil pressure this does not mean you actually have pressure

check pressure manually!!!

The ford ranger has less problems,and is easier to work on,and easy to diagnose ,when it does have problems,but for the most part the ranger ,all the way.Ranger does not have a lot of power,but is a very good truck.

Need torque specs for oil pan bolts


torque specs for these bolts can be found in a Haynes or Chilton manual availiable from your local parts store, or maybe at your local library, however these bolts are usually no more than 14 ft pounds, unlike cylinder head bolts, the bolts do not need to have any stretch factor to hold the oil pan gasket in place or sealed.
