Well, I don't know what year your truck is, but I used to have a 97 7.3. I don't know if the newer bs are the same, and I am not a mechanic but this is my experience with losing oil pressure.
I got my oil changed, the plug got stripped, and I got 11 miles down the road when it fell out. The truck shut off. I got out in time to watch the last 2-3 quarts drain out of the oil pan. No damage what so ever to the motor. There is a saftey feature in them, that if you lose too much oil pressure, the PCM will shut off power to the injectors, thus shutting down the motor.
So, in my "opinion", you should be able to start your truck up without worrying about doing any damage to the motor. If it is losing oil pressure, and it is not the sending unit, the motor should cut off before it hurts itself.
C'mon guys help me out here-is that correct on all of these motors?
Hope this helps!
