This is probably a dumb question, but I just got my 04 Powerstroke 6.0. When I start it the check gauge light comes on and I have no oil pressure. Once it warms up the check gauge light goes out and the oil pressure raises to normal, then it drops for a second and goes back to normal. Is this supposed to happen? and will it hurt to not let it warm up and drive with the check gauge light on and low oil pressure (according to the gauge)? Any help with this will be appreciated.
No thats not normal. I assume you have checked the oil level. It would not start without oil pressure. If it starts and runs fine other than the problem you mention, then I would assume you have an indicating problem.
