Customer Question
I have a 2007...

I have a 2007 ford F150 the failsafe came on says low oil pressure but when I restart the pressure is correct? any thoughts we are in a blizzard at the moment ?? thanks John

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is your oil pump? Has the check engine light come on?

Check engine came on oil pump is original

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No stuck at work at the moment and with a blizzard probably not moving any time soon

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Is there a reset protocol for the fail safe?

John,
When its saying low oil pressure does the engine make any unusual noise like rattling?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no felt like loss of power
Ford Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 7 months ago

If in fact you loss power you may be losing oil pressure as well, you need to start first with scanning the computer to see if there are any fault codes setting and I would also remove the oil pressure sending unit and install a manual gauge and read the actual oil pressure to see if in fact, it is dropping on you.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
