Pretty sure a 1994 Ford is going to have a fake oil pressure gauge. It just always shows normal, unless it's below a set minimum, then it will show low.

I had a similar issue, and it was caused by an oil leak. The leak from my push rod cover coated the ground wire for the oil sending unit with oil where the ground connects to the engine block. When I replaced the gasket and cleaned up the area the pr

1994 F150 4x4, 302 engine, 217k miles. FL1A, M1HM. I've owned about two years, but was one-owner and well maintained with records of regular oil changes at Ford dealership. Leaks at rear main, probably burns some, but no noticeable signs of it. Ever

In the 60's and 70's, my Father always told me; "you can do more harm by over-oiling an electric motor than under-oiling" I never knew exactly why. Now I want to find out because my Uncle who is 83 years old will want me this coming Winter

I haven't tried a 20 grade oil as my car's OM says to use an A3/B3 or A3/B4 oil. The Magnatec 10W-30 semi-synthetic and the Magnatec 5W-30 full synthetic are both SN & A3/B4, hence my interest in them. I am tempted by the Castrol Edge 10W-30 A5

Huh well since Germany has strict standards for what can be labeled as full synthetic that would mean that according to that site only 2 are real synthetics?

It sounds(no pun intended) like the Magnatec is the way to go with that engine. It's an interesting issue you have. Have you tried any of the lighter grades of oil(Xw-20's) for a comparison. I'm hearing you regarding the mechanical sounds. Try a 4 v

Merk is looking at the ILSAC one, which is the only one available in North America (as far as I know), and the only type of 30 grade he's actually interested in.

"Unfortunate" is kind, second topic choice closer at least for some period of time. However, it was run past the 15k mi recommendation. I would be curious of the time frame for the 20k though? Next one, go one 10k mile oci max. Thanks f
