either the oil pump is worn out or the truck engine is. Particularly the cam bearings. Could also be a spun bearing somewhere else although that usually makes a heck of a noise.
If this happened gradually then id say the engine could be wore out though id check the oil pressure sending unit as it could be bad too.
If this happened suddenly then id say dont drive too far. ;)
2 - you have some bad cds. They are not balanced when they spin in the drive and will wobble and make all kinds of noise. If you continue to use those disks, you stand the chance of damaging the drive -- if not damaged already.
i have a riello oil burner 40 F5, starts to fire up for a few seconds and fails , but then it will start for a few minutes...then shuts off... house is not being heated sufficient. There's hot water but after one shower the water starts getting cold....fuel is ok any ideas please
Over time the plastic gears wear and this is usually the reason for the vibration.This is not a indication that the drive is going its just wear and tear.You might want to replace after a while.
There is a bleed screw on the pump, turn a 1/4 turn to the left, and bleed until oil is free of oil. On older pumps, instead or a bleeder valve it is just a plug, you will have to remove the plug, bleed, then replace the plug
The fine black ash is called soot, and is a by-product of incomplete combustion. The burner should be set up and adj. with the proper equipment. Your OEM specs are a good starting point, but without performing a combustion efficiency test, it is not possible to properly set up a oil burner.
They could have disturbed the sludge in the tank when refilling. If you do not have a filter in place it may have clogged the pump or jet and making it hard to start. These need yearly maintenance anyway. The pumps usually have a screen inside and the jet has a screen inside. First,open the bleed on the pump and purge some oil from the line and see if it is flowing freely. If so, the take the drawer assembly out and clean it. Make sure the jet is clear, by blowing through the attached oil line. You should see/feel a fine mist of oil come out. Electrodes should be about 5/32" apart for an F5.
