Re: 2000 Taurus 3.0 V-6 Oil Pressure Low
At idle, light is on. I put a gauge in it and only had 5 psi idling, hot, and 20psi at 1500 RPM.
I drooped the pan today and pulled a few rods and mains. Copper showing, but crank looks good. I have some debri in the pan that , at first I thought was bearing material. All bearings shell are in tack. ???
I can't ID the debri. It sticks to a magnet.
I can see up into the cylinders and there is no scoreing or unusual look to the pistons or pins.
It almost looks like some kind of oil slinger pieces???????
There was no engine noise while running,. although if I let it idle too long the valve started to tap....lack of pressure for the lifters I suppose.
I, at this point am at a loss.
ANY SUGGESTIONS FROM ANYONE?
