Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Mercury Mountaineer V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 120000 miles
1 month ago the low oil pressure light and gauge kept going on in my truck, I brought it in to mechanic and he changed the low oil pressure sensor switch, I would like to note that this truck idled and drove like a new truck, you couldn't even hear it run. A few weeks after that the truck needed a new tie rod and links, we brought it in and they fixed that problem, in the paperwork a mechanic noted that the low oil pressure sensor and gauge were reacting. My husband then told them that they had just fixed this problem, which they didn't realize until they checked their computer. The mechanic then told me not to worry about that when they get the new part in they would call us and change it, that sometime the sensor switch gets clogged with debris. He told me to keep driving it, a few days later my trucks engine seized, now they want to put in a new engine. What would have been the proper diagnosis and procedure that could have avoided all this money and time that is now being spent on this, and do you believe that they are at fault?
