Engine In Locked Up Time For New Motor!

Yep the ****ty *** oil pump went out Friday night I was doing 60 and the oil light came on then about 20-30 seconds later the engine died. I was on a 2 lane road at 3 a.m. so I could not just stop or pull over.

Time for a new motor in my 2004 Ford Ranger maybe 4.0 time?

I am not really mad because its a new begining. EVERYONE should invest in a oil pressure gauge! I know I am putting one on the new engine!

Isn't there someone on here that's trying to sell a full 4.0 set-up? You should talk to him.

Oh, I didn't know what year it was. I've never actually opened that thread. Just saw the title.
