Hey all,
I have a 2000 Ford Explorer 4.0L SOHC and while driving on the highway my oil pressure gauge dropped below L. After pulling over, the engine started to run roughly and rattle so I immediately shut it off. Upon inspection of the oil level, I don't seem to be leaking or burning oil. Does this sound like a problem with the oil pump? Or could it be something else?
-Thanks

Almost sounds like maybe your timing chain guides broke and are clogging up your oil pickup tube... Have you dropped your oil pan to check for debris?
