    Oil pressure loss

    I have a 2004 GTX. I lost oil pressure. The warning buzzer went off. When I got home and started the engine I could here the top end making some noise. I pulled the supercharger and the clutch washers were in tact. I pulled the engine and started disassembly of the pumps and oil pan. So far I have found nothing wrong. I am open to suggestions.

    You removed the motor before checking the switch?

    ALWAYS check mechanical oil pressure before even thinking about taking the motor out.

    I knew I had low oil pressure by the sound of the engine. I am an experienced automotive mechanic. I found the problem. The oil filter was collapsed and blocking oil flow. It seems like some water mixed with the oil to clog up the filter but when I pulled the oil out of the engine I didn't see any water. Any ideas?

    water or antifreeze
    water usually gets in from high water in exhaust
    antifreeze from head gasket

    Antifreeze level never dropped any. How does water get in from the exaust and what can I do to prevent it.

    the most common way is to run it on the hose and then shut off motor and forget to kill the water
