HELP!!!

My little brother has a early 99 PSD latley we he has had problems with low oil pressure... When the truck is at idle or low RPM's is when the pressure is low... but once the truck gets going at higher RPM's the pressure icreases. This leads me to beleive that the screen in the pan is plugged up and when at higher RPM's the oil is being forced through... This is just my opinion on the matter. If someone can has another theory then please chime in.

If this is the problem what can we do to solve it besides pulling the engine and dropping the pan...

change the oil & filter + check your sending unit to see if its working... if a psd doesnt have high enough oil presure it wont run. I wouldnt worry about it.

Unless you have an ohm meter and know what to check for usualy your left with trial and error. start replacing parts. It sux and can get expensive but its worth a shot to replace the sender.
