oil pressure question!!
I just bought my first f150 about 2 weeks ago. Its a 93 with the 5.0 extended cab, manual tranny, 2 wheel drive. 153k on motor. Needs a few odds and ends, so far ive done a starter, general tune up (plugs, wires, oil and air filter)
When i got the truck my oil pressure seemed a little low on the dash gage. My brother just got rid of his flairside with the 5.0 in it and he said it was about right when he looked at it. Today pressure dropped between the n and o. Shortly after the "check engine" light came on for about 5ish seconds then went off. Now i am no mechanic but i no enough to get by and this dosnt seem normal. Anyone have any ideas??
I will be throwing on a mechanical gage asap, what should the pressure read when hot??
