Quick oil pressure question

I just changed my oil and went with the Rotela T6. My question is, when I crank the truck, it takes a sec for my oil pressure to come up. (The factory guage I mean) Is this normal? It may have done it before, I only drove the truck a few days before I changed the oil. Just wondering if this is normal. Then engine sounds fine as soon as you crank it, the oil pressure needle just doesn't come up for a second or so.... Thanks in advance!! Preston

Mine does the same thing, also sometimes it takes longer and I get the beep "check gauges" has happened a couple times. Curious to know if it's a common thing.

Well it is really an idiot light. There is not really a pressure sensor but a switch. Once it see's 7 lbs or so it says you have oil pressure. Pretty lame POS really.

Just one thing to check.. Make sure that the oil filter cap is FORD and that you always use Ford filters. Theres a video somewhere that breaks down the problems with aftermarket oil filters on the 6.0L. Aftermarket oil filter caps and filters are a big no no on the 6.0L. Just a thought

The cap doesn't say Ford on it, I don't think.... and I put a purolator filter in it this time... Did I mess up? What's the issue with it? The parts house was out of the Motorcraft filters... Thanks! Preston

There is a drain and oil filter bypass built into the oil filter canister. If the oil filter is not the right height or the cap is the wrong height you could be draining the housing all the time or completely bypassing the oil filter all the time. Get a FORD filter and cap ASAP!
