so i ran my 97 powerstroke out of oil doing 70mph with a load on it last night. Check engine light came on and the truck shut down. I do have a oil leak so thats not the issue at hand right now .... my conseern is trying to get the truck to run again. put gallon and a half oil in re filled the hpop resvor.and then tried cranking nothing so then .. i had my truck pulled and i would let the clutch out in 3rd gear and the motor would run but soon as i would put the clutch in truck would shut down. any ideas? thanks

Needs more than a gallon and a half to continue to run. Sounds like you blew an HPOP o ring or line. Check it over

needs WAY more than a gallon and a half. that's a lot of surface area to cover with just 6 quarts when it takes over ten

You should be OK once you get enough oil in it (and fix the oil leak) I had one of the high pressure oil lines to the heads let go while I was running a tic over 80 and while it made a heck of a mess (that's a lot of oil!)the truck fired right up once I changed the line and filled it with oil.

Thats the beauty of these engines. As long as the oil leak is just a long and not a rod through the block or something like that. They shut down before lack of oil can damage them
