Do you know whether not they actually did it oil pressure test? Is the engine making any unusual noises?


Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes, it was negative, no pressure. there are no noises from the engine. we can actually drive it.
Expert:  Skyvisions replied 6 years ago.

If you do not have any oil pressure the engine should be
locking up or making noise. If they put an actual oil pressure gauge on this
and it shows zero the engine probably is no good. At this point you're probably
going to be better off trying to find a used engine. This will more than likely
be your cheapest route. Unfortunately I do not know anybody in that area the
country that can give you assistance. Your only other possibility would be to
try a new oil pump and save the engine that you have.
