would have come back up one day I
didn't get it to turn it off and turn
back on and my truck turned off and

this problem

1 Answer


you did not state which vehicle, but in my experience, heavy duty pumps will cause oil-leaks and there is a pressure reducing spring on the kit, but I'd look at the condition of the oil and the sparkplugs to make sure that there is no trouble with oil delivery, chances are the gauge may be correct, but the oil pump is worn or broken~ have a simple arm that drives the pressure, this may be faulty have not seen that failure, yet~
