Ford Explorer Sport Oil Pump

My oil pressure gauge started jumping up and down yesterday. If I gave it gas it went back to normal and the check gauge light went off. However today it is low and not moving. I drove it home (less than 10 miles) and I could smell oil burning. Is this my oil pump?

Perhaps,sounds more like a clog in your system. Oil filter a nd changes to your oil should work.

No that is not the pump that you smell. You need to have a test gauge hooked up to verify that you have good oil pressure, if it is ok then replace the sending unit for the oil pressure gauge.

When you had the pump replaced did anyone look at the rod and main bearings? 99% of all low oil pressure problems I've seen has been directly related to bearing wear, not a bad oil pump.
Replacing the pump will give you slightly better pressure temporarily but that won't last very long.
Verify the actual oil pressure using an external mechanical gauge. If it's low (likely it is) go back into the oil pan and use plasti-gage on the bearings to measure clearances.
In reality though, in an engine with that many miles, it's best to either completely rebuild or replace it though.

Sounds to me like it could be a bad oil sending unit or gauge. I would take it in to a shop and have them test the oil pressure with their equipment.
If they tell you the pressure is good try changing the oil sending unit first then if that don't work, replace the gauge.

I would use 10W-30W, but that should not make the oil pressure read low, have the oil pressure checked with a mechanical test guage, if it tests within normal range then start by replacing the oil pressure sending unit.
