Have Ford Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.
The first thing to do would be to connect an oil pressure gauge and check the actual pressure at idle when the engine is fully warmed up. Has this been done?
There a multiple things that can cause low oil pressure. Does the engine make any noise or tapping sounds?
You could try replacing the engine oil pressure switch.
The switch and the sending unit is the same thing.
Oil pressure switch is number 4 on the diagram below.
