Figure someone might have some suggestions as I’m not getting a ton of response on FB groups.
Bought a '95 F150 right before Covid to use for hauling projects and home stuff. Odometer says 247k but prev owners says only has about 4k on after the motor was rebuilt. Seemed to run fine, starts up with no excessive noise. Haven’t put a ton of miles on it since we’ve been in lockdown/working from home but been to Pick-n-Pull in S. Dallas and back from Plano and several trips to HD/Lowes.
Decided to change the oil yesterday for the first time and now it appears as though I’m not getting any oil pressure. I find it hard to believe that the oil pump would go out exactly at the moment I change the oil. Hooked up a mechanical oil pressure gauge that I just bought at Autozone and nothing. I can’t recall how much oil was drained but could it be the previous owners put excessive amounts in to create enough pressure? Not sure what weight they used but I’m assuming stock as there was a quart of 5w30 in the floorboard.
