Engine Performance problem
1998 Ford Windstar 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 152000 miles
The light indicating low oil pressure keeps coming on. I have been told by two professional mechanics that the connecting rod bearings should be replaced to alleviate this problem. Both mechanics also said they didn't want to do the work. After reading through my Hayes Maint./Repair manual and talking to a neighbor who is a former mechanic, I would like to attempt this job myself. I realize that removing the oil pan is no easy chore in itself. However, once I get the pan off, are there any special steps I have to consider when I remove the bearings and install new ones? Just an aside: After consulting with my two mechanics, they both agree that installing standard bearings instead of undersize bearings would be sufficient.
have the same problem?
