have you verified oil pressure with a external mechanical gauge?
correct the fitting adapter is part # ***** - Oil Pressure Adapter http://www.handsontools.com/Kent-Moore-J-21867-6-Adapter-Oil-Pressure-Gauge-J21867-6_p_21132.html
yes but its a bare to get in there but it can be done yes..
well its the best way to verify if its truly weak oil pressure or gauge or sender issue. are you the original owner? do you know the maintenance history since day 1?
how many miles? any engine noise? any lights? any signs of sludge or lack of maintenance?
I would generally I flush by putting 50 percent oil and 50 percent tranny fluid and drive it around a few days...it cleans the motor real well
oil pump sludge or internal bearing failure rod or main bearings
well it could be oil pump and or bearings...tear down to find extent of damage or motor replacement would be the next step
is it 4x4?
its a big job 8.5 hours
