ah that makes sense the pressure gauge is really a switch,that explains the drop from normal to nothing at idle. No the truck isnt losing oil. It took a very long time for it to get a couple quarts low,not sure how many miles but it was alot.the truck doesnt get driven everyday,but when it does it usually short trips.. last change was delo oil.this change was rotella.There has been a small leak that centers around the oil filter housing,Ive had to clean it 3 times in 50k miles so its very small,but i just cant seem to find where it is coming from,it gets in the front of the turbo and up on the hood in that area.
So if the oil pressure fell off truly the truck would not run for sure? Where is the pressure switch. It seems like when it starts doing this If i put the truck in tow mode and run it hard a time or 2 it stops doing it for a while.would this be related to the sending unit switch as well? also recently it seems to run rough and miss in the morn when its cold,but it starts fine and runs good after a few min. I put some cetane booster in it,but it didnt seem to help
it has minimal mods,4 inch turbo back exh,pro guard filter intake,sct tuner by innovative diesel
