You can pull the oil pressure sending unit and install a mechanical gauge in the hole, and check if you have pressure, is so you can replace the sender, if not you have oil pump problems.

Suddenly lost oil pressure, now truck won't start.


Have you checked pressure with a mechanical gauge ?
If you really don't have pressure there's not much you can do without pulling the pan.

Oil level is normally at 40 however while driving it suddenly dropped to the 0 mark the it begins to read all over the gauge. Oil level is good I NEED HELP!!!!!


The reading on the gauge is not oil level, that is oil pressure. If you have lost oil pressure you either have a bad oil sending unit, bad gauge, or an actual pressure issue. If you can connect a manual gauge and verify if you do or do not have pressure is the first step. If you do have pressure with the mechanical gauge then you simply need to figure out if you need a sending unit or a gauge. If you do not have pressure with a mechanical gauge the only answer is internal with a clogged sump tube, failed oil pump, or spun bearing.

I;ve lost oil pressure the needle stay's down while driving, is the oil pump bad or going bad? is it located in the oil pan or the front of the 4.6L MOTOR?


If the needle is staying down and the motor is not knocking then the gauge is probably bad. If you run the engine with no oil pressure, then it will not last long. It will start knocking and ruin the engine. But yes the oil pump in in the oil pan. There is also a oil pressure sending unit that could be bad. It is located on the back of the engine.

Oil gauge drops to 0 after engine is warm, checked oil. it was low apox 2qt filled it up , restarted motor, ran for a few min. again same problem. now when shut off and restarted it does the same thing?


when you say it does the same thing the iol level keeps going down that would be a major problem
if the oil pressure keeps droping check the pressure with an external gage do not rely on the factory one if the pressure is good the factory gage could be bad if not you could have a bad oil pump

Oil gauge drops all the way down and check gauge light comes on


Could be the oil pressure sender has gone bad or worse case scenario the oil pump has worn out. Check the oil presssure sender first, if it is leaking around it then that is the cause, if not then you may be looking at an oil pump. Just had a 03 ram 2500 doing the same thing and it was the sender, but that was a hemi and it had 230000 miles and a month later had to replace the oil pump for same issue.

Oil pressure on my 98 jeep keeps droping down to 10- 20 lbs .


The low number bothers me...some people will tell you that 10lbs is fine, however this engine generally runs at least 30 at idle hot, sometimes a bit lower but not much.Pressure drop hot is because the oil flows easier when warm, and internal clearances change as well. First, I would have the pressure verified by using a mechanical gauge (yours is electric) If actual pressure is the same as your readings, I'd change the oil and add marvel oil to remove any deposits which may be on the pump pickup screen. Check oil you drained for fuel smell to make sure it's not contaminated.
If pressure does not improve, or drops further, you are going to have to drop the pan and check for bearing wear.(pumps generally don't go bad...wear at the bearings allows pressure to escape) If you find any bearings out of tolerance, change them and the pump as it may have some internal scoring from debris.
