1999 magnum 318 cu 4x4 low oil pressure oil level good lifters will rattle slightly what is my problem
oil pressure problem has been intermittent pressure from 75 or so to 30 psi pressure will change but lifters will rattle slightly when under a load when pressure is low. I will not run my truck like this it seems an eminent threat now I would not want to ruin my engine. Is my problem a clogged oil screen pickup or a bad pump?
Clogged or loose oil pick up screen and or tube, oil pump or maybe oil pump drive. I would think that if the engine is dirty inside that oil pickup screen is likely the cause. Could be an issue with the oil filter also.
