    I just bought this truck two weeks ago. I put it into 4WD and went to push snow for the first time this morning. The truck lost oil pressure and was literally pouring oil. What can this be???

    Did you check to see where the oil was coming from? Does it have an oil cooler and maybe a line let go?

    X2, pouring from where? First guess is an oil cooler line......................second guess is a rear main seal. Let's hope its the first one.

    It could be a cooler. I have seen vehicles that have sat for long time rust a hole through the oil pan.

    I didn't have a chance to check. I did the lot at work and haven't had time since. Thanks for the idea of a oil cooler. I was so enraged I didn't even think about that.

    I'm guessing there is a leak.

    So it lost pressure and started pouring oil yet you finished the lot?

    I am thinking .if you're not educated enough to know where to look or what to do when something like this happens, you should sell the truck and keep your day job.

    Every GOOD truck owner who's bought a truck knows to bring a flashlight and a knowledgeable mechanic if they don't know what to look for with them to make sure that the truck is mechanically sound. That truck could have had a slow leak before you even bought it and you did it in when you were plowing. If you don't know what to look for then I would junk the truck and buy a prius put a hitch on it and tow around a snowblower.That way if something goes wrong you can put the snowblower on the trailer and bring it home.:laughing:

    Why a Prius?

    I just think it would be funny to see a prius towing a snowblower and something would be more likely to happen electrical on the prius causing him to go to the dealer and not having to post on here.:nod:

    So you think the Prius is less dependable because it has more electrical components?

    And you think dealers are the only people that can work on them?

    More dependable because it is electric and anyone can work on them I ment to say a repair shop,that's what happens when you work at a dealership.
