after it gets warmed up or if i accelerate it or rev-it up...i lose the oil pressure, and it sounds like a 7.3 Power Stroke, boy don't i wish. i'm limited on funds, and i can't work on my truck where i live.

sounds like oil pump going out or screen plugged up. oil pan will have to come off to check. engine has to come out.
