Ok now...

Alright, specs of the truck are in the sig. Today when i went to start it, the oil can light came on in the message center, oil pressure light. What could cause this? I started the truck, while turning over the cluster beeped, then started, oil pressure light came on for 2 seconds then went off. Turned the truck off and did it again, no light, tried a third time, light came on. I drove about 5 miles of freeway and parked, shut the truck off, got it to about 180* EOT. A couple minutes later I started it again and no light. Tried again and no light again. I use 5w40 amsoil synthetic have been for a long time, this is the first time this light has ever come on.

Does anyone know what the problem could possibly be, the oil level was in the middle. The truck had been sitting for about 5 days without being driven or started until today when the light came on.

Manual says just that it is a pressure light. There were no codes at all, no wrench light, no check engine light.

I appreciate anyone's help.

Oil can /oil pressure green light on inst panel

I have had the same experience with my 6.4 2008 F350 for the last 2 weeks. the light stays on for 5 to 10 seconds then goes off. About 5 days in between events with no codes and no other symptoms. One friend suggested changing the oil pressure sensor. I am going to try that. It has happened after startup and after going up a step driveway.

I have been thinking of adding an oil pressure gauge, turbo exhaust temp gauge and a fuel pressure gauge. a friend had a very nice cluster mounted on the left windshield column on his Dodge. Good info that doesnt show up on present settup.
