2013 MKT Ecoboost Oil Pressure Warning

Recommended Posts

Hello MKT owners,

I have high mileage 2013 MKT (311,000 miles), former Limo car.
Driving in town (low speeds, stop lights etc) I have low oil pressure warning coming on.
On the highway it's not giving me the warning. I have parked it until I have a plan.
I know this is not good. I'm pretty good with wrenching (cylinder heads, timing belts).

Is this something I should consider fixing or should I say goodbye the car?

Anyone have experience with this problem?

Should I drop the oil pan and have a look/replace oil pickup screen?

Thanks for any info anyone can offer me .

You should verify that it has oil pressure issue first with an actual mechanical gage. Oil pressure switches are always an issue. It would be foolish to do anything else first.

Ok.... thank you for the reply.

 

I'll get my hands on a gauge and I'll check the Chilton book for instructions/proper pressure reading.

 

If the pressure looks good then I will replace the sensor.
