What car and engine do you have? The mechanic should have checked the oil pump pickup screen when it was replaced. A collapsed oil filter could also cause low oil pressure as could a worn engine. How many miles on the engine?


Try this stuff called form a company called LIQUI MOLY, tappet stop noise..
