Asked by May 14, 2018 at 01:00 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer Limited

Question type: General

I have a 2002 Ford Explorer I'm getting no oil
pressure when I start up the vehicle it's like every
lifter is hitting making a lot of noise could it be the
oil pump

3 Answers


It could be the oil pump. Do you have oil in the engine?

The oil was changed about two months ago

It takes to drop the pan and do the timing chains I probably would be a lot better off just having another engine dropped in right?
