When truck is first started oil pressure is at 40 psi. As the motor idles down the oil
pressure drops off low oil pressure message comes on . if you keep the rpms up to 800 to
1000 it never losses pressure. Once the truck is warn the issue goes away. I already
changed the oil pressure sensor. Thanks
