Re: Oil Pressure Gauge drops to zero at Idle
We'd love to, but Grampy is about an 8 hour drive north of here! The local dealer had a look at this truck about three months ago because it was losing coolant like crazy and blowing white smoke (steam) at startup. They told him it was head gaskets and quoted $5000 for the job. He didn't have that kinda cash at the time, so the truck sat for a while, and then I read here on the good 'ol DieselStop about EGR cooler failure and that seemed to match his symptoms better that Head gaskets, so we popped out the EGR valve and sure enough, it was all wet! So we grabbed a used egr cooler off of my old overheated 6.0 from a couple years ago, and spent a saturday (and a couple dozen cool ones)changing it out. Problem solved, no coolant loss now! Thanks to TDS!
Truck ran fine for about a month, now this oil pressure problem. I think we'll check oil pressure with a gauge first, maybe swap sending units as we have a complete overheated 6.0 sittin here collecting dust.
