Hello, in order to correct this issue you want to test oil pressure. The oil pressure when the engine is hot shouldn't be less than 25 psi. If it lower then 25psi the engine can't run correctly since it throws off timing. Before you put any other parts on I would perform base oil pressure off of the oil filter housing so you know where to go.
