catastrophic loss of oil, possible damage?

had an incident, exiting the freeway hit some road debris and heard noise under truck. At the light at the end of the ramp, long ramp, the engine shut off and would not re fire. I stepped out to look under, noticed a trail of oil and puddle under truck.

do i have to start looking for internal damage other then the oil pan, which is on order for replacement.

Are there any lines hanging freely or lower then they Appear they should? could of saved your engine by finally looking. Have you been able to get it towed to your place or a shop? be interested to know what it hit and maybe see if I can fab a plate, or re route a line etc...

you may Be ok since the injectors are oil fired and require a certain pressure

if that pressure isn't met the system will shut down the injection cycle

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

yup id bet you are ok... when ya lost oil pressure the engine shut off thus saving you...i would still go thru things very closely though... make sure no debris is still hanging around or anywhere it shouldnt be.

Agree with both of these. 99% of the time you'll be ok.

Some of us 6.0 owners can't keep our oil pressure where it needs to be even with all the parts in place.
