    Hi,

    need help on this, engine running good until 3250rpm when it reaches the rpm it says oil and engine goes on 2 cylinders (safe mode)? it's a 2004 engine changed the 2 oil sensor still having the problem.

    My mechanic thinks it's the oil pump that is not working. Before buying a new one wouldlike some advise

    there are 2 oil pumps. you can get to the front pump fairly easy with the motor in but the rear pump you will have to remove the pto cover. i have read that the rear pump does most of the work. the best thing to do is hook an oil pressure guage up to it and monitor pressure first and go from there

    My guess is you have low oil pressure and the warning system is doing its job. You either have a bad regulator or your engine is tired and needs rebuild. If your oil pump is that warn out your bearings are just as warn out. Just my opinion.

    If its a fresh rebuild your mechanic forgot about the oil pump and regulator. To me thats not a fresh rebuild.
