Truck loses oil pressure on cold starts. Why?

(2003 Dodge Ram 3500)
in Loveland, CO on April 16, 2011
PU loses oil pressue on cold starts. Mechanics have replaced the oil pump, oil cooler gasket, tube has been tested, gasket between the pump and the pick up tube has been replaced and various other things one. No one can seem to figure this out and we are getting frustrated. All this is very costly and we wonder if we will be totally broke before the cause is found.
