rondefly Posted November 2, 2009 Share Posted November 2, 2009 (edited) Parked the truck thursday night, Friday started it up and no oil pressure, took it two blocks to the mechanic that has been working on it. after putting the computer to it he said it was the turbo, Changed it and still no oil pressure. changed the oil pressure sensor, still nothing. he then took off the oil pan. now he tells me the shaft for the oil pump is broke and the crank is blue. he also said the engine is now junk and would be around 20,000. to fix out of the frame. for some reason I don't trust this sequence of remedies. When I took it to him the temp was ok, both oil and coolant. but no oil pressure. the on board computer said it may shut down. however I only went two blocks. how easy is it to change the oil pump and shaft? if the crank is truly blue it must have been hot at some time. always had good oil pressure. (starting and first 15 minutes around 60#, after warming up between 40 and 50 while driving. at idle around 25#. anyone have any ideas.Ron Triano Edited November 2, 2009 by quickie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
