Oil pump Going out?
Ok Here it goes. My oil Pressure Fake gauge has been acting squirreling lately on cold start ups. It will jump around like a frazzled teenager at a nudie bar. Now This is actually what happen before the oil pump went out on the impala, except for a few differences. One the impala has a real gauge so I knew the pressure at all times and it was summer so the oil flowed a little smoother. Now since the explorer is the only winter vehicle I have here I can't let it die. Do you agree with my thoughts that it is the oil pump? Or am I just paranoid and this is normal for a 150K mile 4.0 on a 10* night?
