Remove the sump and check the pick up pipe ,it has a gauze filter and this is blocked with clag from the engine which is caused by not having the oil changed regular .quicker to do this than trying to flush the engine

Have a 1999 F350 with the 5.4 Triton. While driving lost oil pressure. Then it was fluxuating. Now it acts like it's locked up. Any suggestions?


Hello Dreama Rhodes,

Those symptoms would lead to a SERIOUS OIL leak conclusion.

Hopefully the LOCK-UP is your F350... self defense shut down
rather than an actual seizure...

You need ti be checking oil levels like your engine's life depends on it... a lost drain plug, broken oil line, damaged or loose FILTER...

ALL
ought to be pretty obvious

Drive no where until you are sure your
ENGINE WILL SURVIVE.

2003 Town & Country hard to start. Once it's starts it will start every time . Wait a few minutes then it's hard to start. Must turn over three or four time to start.


It sounds like possibly a fuel pump issue. The pump may be losing its prime because of a sticking check valve in the pump. Instal a pressure gauge and watch the fuel pressure after shutting the car off. The pressure should not completely drop off it should only drop a few pounds. If it loses more than a few pounds of pressure quickly then it may need a fuel pump. This can also be caused by leaking fuel injectors so further diagnosis is needed to find the source of the leak

Y TRUCK IS LOSING OIL PRESSURE BUT SOMETIMES ITS OK 4 ALITTLE WHILE IS IT MY OIL PUMP GOING OUT?


Normaly an oil pump won't fluxuate output, I would suspect a faulty oil pressure sensor first. You could also have the pressure tested.
A problem with the Ford modular motors had was sludging due to longer intervals then normal oil changes , Ford went to recommending 5w20 Synthetic Blend oil in later model years to address this problem.

Car shuts down when driving.ley sit for a short time will start again.but will repeat every few miles


You really need a fuel pressure gauge, run it in the driveway until it stalls, and see if you lose fuel pressure. Check the oil, if it's too low the sensor will shut off the fuel pump.

2006 suburban oil pressure gauge fluxuating


Most likely it's the oil sending sensor, located beside the oil filter. You can change it, just be sure to have old newspaper or rags laying around the area where you will work, because a little oil will be lost. The part isn't expensive, for mine on a Ford Expedition was around $35 and took 5 minutes to change. Just un-plug the connector going to the sensor, and a larger wrench will be needed, large (7/8, 15/16) somewhere in that range of size.

1998 FORD 4WD RANGER 128,000 MILES ENGINE LOST OIL PRESSURE OIL PUMP LOOKS GOOD NO SLUG IN OIL PAN, WHY?


Most likely your oil pressure relief valve located on in or nearby pump. Symptoms are oil pressure will drop when warmed up when idle lose all pressure eraticly giving the vehicle gas will bring back pressure and highway driving will bring pressure up until idle again.
