1994 Ford Mustang V8 Two Wheel Drive Manual 95000 miles
My oil pressure gauge reading was creeping upward over several days. Then, suddenly, the car was dead with absolutely no cranking of the engine. I assumed it was the battery and so I pop-started it going downhill and drove it about 10 miles home - as I was driving the oil pressure gauge was almost pegged. I parked the car and shut it down and didn't notice anything abnormal other than the high oil pressure. Later, while the car was sitting the oil pressure totally pegged HIGH-HIGH-HIGH and doesn't move regardless of the battery or ignition - yet the other gauges on the dash are functional. And it doesn't crank but the Key On Engine Off diagnostic passes. Meanwhile, I've replaced the battery (and something drained it to 3V so I’ve disconnected it while not testing) and I pulled the starter and had it tested - the starter PASSed diagnostics at the local auto parts store. I also checked the engine to see if the crankshaft would turn with a ratchet and it does. I have checked the fuses and they are all OK but I don’t know anything about the three relays. But it still won't crank.
have the same problem?
