    I just recently pulled my 5.0 out of my 98 due to it running like crap, no power, and terrible fuel economy (well worse than a 5.0 usually gets). The truck got dunked during Harvey, but it still ran. Couldn't figure out the problem.

    Popped the oil pan and it was all clear then! :banghead:

    Yup that's parts of a piston in the oil pickup

    Piston (B) was very unhappy after colliding with Crankshaft (A)
