Cool Real wierd problem

Ok so i was driving from denver to pueblo colorado yesterday and i got a few bucks on the highway. then when i would exit to refuel it would die as i was decellerating. then again at a stop light. finally, it completely went **** on me when i couldnt get it to restart. then i finally did restart it and had it towed home. the wierd thing is that it DOES start and run and will stay running, but im showing no oil pressure at this possible? i thought it needed oil pressure to im wondering if the sensor is just out and im paranoid for nothing, or if my lpop or hpop is out. any ideas guys?

Well I'll assume you checked the oil. The senders can go bad unusual but it does happen.check the sender and wiring and while you're there look real close at the icp for leaking.

dont worry.. no oil pressure = no start

if the lpop is not pumping oil the hpop will get no oil and the injectors will NOT fire.
I recently dealt with a similar issue with killing at traffic lights on a friends truck.... pull your eps and check the sensor and tube to see if its clogged. if it is use a small pick and some carb clean then blast out with air.

also check your icp to see if its leaking through the sensor

and lastly have you ever had ford do the recall cps?

now that you have a starting point to check a few things give us some more detail on the condition and the truck.

ses light?
miles on truck?
when it dies does it feel like you turned the key off or is it more like you are running out of fuel?
are you able to "make it happen" on demand?
do you have a scanner or a way to read live data?
