Engine Mechanical problem
1994 Dodge Truck V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic
After replacing a thermostat, (which I assume has nothing to do with my problem) while towing in the Mtns, my oil pressure slowly dropped to nothing, followed by engine niose (valves, lifters?). After putting in a new oil pump, the probems persists. When cold, I get 40# pressure, after engine warms up, (or viscocity of oil drops) it drops to nothing again. If rpm's are maintaned, slight oil pressure is maintaned. I'm told that the only way of fixing this is to take apart the engine, or put in a new long block. This can't be right.
have the same problem?
