My buddy had the same thing I think its normal but when its on full I think it throws a code that says something on injection pressure High/Low but not sure. I wouldn't be to worried about it

Souns like your HPOP is goin out and cant keep up with the demand in oil to run the injectors properly on the high setting.

That is what I was thinking, but to be more certain on that diagnosis we need to know what code is getting set, not merely that the check engine light comes on.

99 F350 CCLB 67k miles.

Sold: 01 Dodge cummins ECLB a few more mods to 353hp

Sold: 97 F250 SCLB, 5 speed 2wd. minor mods to 327hp

See a pattern? next I will have to find one of those 6 door jobbers...
