Customer Question

my name is ***** ***** and this is what my technician told me Zero oil pressure reading on oil pressure gauge. They replaced oil pressure sending unit but the same problem persisted. Firestone said the problem is in the instrument cluster and do have a Ford dealership advise on whether or not it needed to be replaced or reprogrammed. The engine seems they have oil pressure, and no mechanical problems while I'm driving now.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Hello and thank you for you question, If the engine is not making any noise then you should not have an actual oil pressure concern and the problem is likely the cluster has failed and if that is the case it will need to be replaced or repaired and programming will also need to be done. Before you consider replacing it there a source where you can send it and it can be repaired and reprogrammed if need be. See the link below. You can send it in or your dealer has there own source as well. http://www.instrumentclusters.com/
