98 Dodge Ram 1500 Oil pressure dropping

Asked by Jun 17, 2016 at 11:27 AM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr WS Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have replaced the oil pump before but here recently it went out again, I
replaced it ....and now after running the engine for a few mins oil pressure
drops and stops feeding oil to the block.  Now it doesn't regain pressure until I
turn off the engine and let it cool. (I have checked the gasket "twice" to make
sure its seal tight) Help me on this one ..wife is tired of me using her truck..:)

Sounds like the bearings Crank and rods are no good. Try 2 quarts of lucas stop leak and 50w oil it will make it last longer but dont beat on it.
