Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

Do you run a power programmer on your truck?

Will your scan tool show the ICP pressure while cranking?

Does it smoke during this power loss?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
My scanner does not show the ICP pressure while cranking, I do have a oil pressure gauge in the truck and know that the truck will crank until the gauge shows pressure then it will start. No smoke just acts like it is starving for fuel.

This looks to be a weak high pressure oil pump or internal leak at the oil rail under the valve cover or there is a concern with the oil bleeding down out of the high pressure oil reservoir. Prior to starting, remove the oil pressure sensor from the reservoir on the top front center of the engine. If the oil is more than an inch below the sensor, then your high pressure oil pump should be replaced.

  • You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, and I do not want you to leave having paid for something that did not meet your wants/needs and myself not receiving a feedback selection from yourself.

Thanks Chris
