Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Two things you need to do, one is check for sludge in your oil that can restrict oil flow. You can look at the underside of the oil fill cap. Two is to check oil pressure with a gauge for accuracy.

Thanks, Ron
