Are you familiar with Fords and their displaying of low oil pressure? Most that I have ever known, will barely show a reading. Why is this? Heck, I guess no one knows- it's a mystery. But you can rebuild an engine, and the oil pressure will show about half across the guage, and within a month's time it will have tapered off to nothing. Strange, but that is how it is. the oil sending unit is defective
