Ok, gonna be a long read but I’m really in a pinch so thanks in advance for my rambling.
So I’m towing my 46' goose neck loaded down with 2 cars (24,140 GCW). Nothing my 05 6.0 hasn’t done before and boom... No oil pressure.
I was rolling along at highway speeds and noticed a little more black smoke then normal (which still wasn’t alot) maybe cause I was pushing her a little harder then normal (normal being 1/2 throttle while towing with a Predator towing tune, I had her at around 3/4 today just to see what she could do). Approaching a toll plaza I started to decelerate, engine braking kicked in (like normal) eventually slowing to around 15 mph. The gate in the ez-pass lane didn’t open till the last second, so thinking i was going to crash through the gate I slammed on the brakes. Just as I hit the brakes the gate came up, (mind you this happened in like, half a second), let off the brake, give her some fuel and nothing. She was dead. Turned over just fine but that was it. Had to get her towed to a shop that doesn’t open until Monday, AND I HAVE TWO $130,000 Maserati's that need delivered on Monday stuck in my trailer. (And my dumbass GARUNTEED delivery)
So here’s some info I know you guys are gonna ask for
Trouble codes P2290 and P2291.
Noticed no gauge reading (Oil Pressure) on the dash while cranking. No engine light and everthing SEEMS to be normal. No VISIBLE oil leaks.
Engine Mods, 4'' strait pipe exhaust, Powermax turbo, Predator towing tune
Recent Maintenance, Coolant flush 8000 miles ago. One oil change 5500 miles ago and my most recent one about 700 miles ago. Turbo was installed in Feb. as was an exhaust pressure sensor, MAP sensor, along with all new filters roughly 12,000 miles ago. (Fuel/air filters and another oil change) I’ve always used Lucas 15 40 truck oil since I owned the truck (2 yrs.) and changed the oil every 4-6000 miles. Starting 2 oil changes ago I switched to Mobile One (El Cheapo Wal-Mart Stuff) 15 40 truck oil. I really don’t think that has anything to do with it but I figured I put it out there. And yes, all the filters are genuine Motorcraft Filters
Things I tried on the side of the road. Let oil/engine cool (thicken oil) and tried to start. Removed and visually inspected the sensor that’s on the passenger side valve cover towards the front of the motor (can’t remember what it was but previous searching on the site led me to do that) didn’t see anything. Checked my fuses, reprogramed to the stock tune., cleared the fault codes disconnected the batteries for about 10 minutes (worth a shot LOL), tapped on the timing cover with a wrench (thinking possibly a stuck oil pressure regulator or something), threw wrench, lol , called tow TRUCKS (emphasis on the "S") and $400 later (emphasis on the "dollars" for 16 miles) I’m at a hotel ($125 a night) and my truck and trailer are locked up at a shop that doesn’t open until Monday. So im into this repair $650 and havent even had the truck looked at yet! Oh dont for get the $25 dollar a day "Storage Fee" per Vehicle. I swear. Get ya comin and goin.
If i wasn’t an honest man i would be driving a Maserati Grand Turismo around cause YES… It has tags on it. LOL.
And to the ******* in the civic who was laying on the horn (like I meant to just stop and block a lane in the toll plaza) I’m still giving you the finger, and you’re lucky that water bottle missed you!
So… Any ideas? Please help.
And thanks for reading my life story, lol!
