After oil change truck died on road towed back to shop had low icp pressure furthur testing revealed no cranking oil pressure for the first 15 to 20 sec then starts pressure reg spring looks good.please help.
Don't do anything else until you get an OEM cap and filter.
The aftermarket cap & filter combos cause all kinds of problems. I'd bet the filter is not fully closing the drain valve in the bottom of the housing which allows oil to drain from the housing as fast as it's trying to fill.
Replaced oil filter and cap with oem truck started after a few cranks has good oil pressure road tested good parked truck to check for leaks did not re start 100 psi icp .pressure test hop system should system hold steady pressure or bleed off cant hear any leaks ?
