Car Information:
Ford F250
Year: 2001
Engine Size: 6.8 l v10
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
My truck’s oil pressure drops to zero after it has been running for a while. When I turn off the truck and then start it back up again, the oil pressure is normal. The pressure only drops when the engine is hot.

Sounds like the sump is getting plugged up with sludge. I would recommend running a mechanical oil pressure test first. If it starts to fade at 2000 rpm after running a while, the oil pan will need to be removed and the sump and pick up screen inspected.
