Question type: Maintenance & Repair

oil pressure drops to zero when engine warms up and stays  there, engine sounds fine no knocking or anything , temperature is right around 205-210. only thing that worries me about the truck is oil pressure, was told everything was put in new in the engine.

Be very wary of this one, I have seen this more than once, an engine is overhauled and the machine shop does something and damages the block internally, like crack a journal web, pressures fine until it warms up then the oil pressure drops out, only real fix is replacing the block.
