A quick compression check will answer that question in short order.
I have the same issue. So do think the main problem in the end was the oil pump o.tnhe type of oil you used?Ole Blue lives again!!!! After several short drives around the block ...all good (no low oil pressure or rattles)... went on a drive up to 60mph, all good, turned around and gave a little gas to kick in turbo (just minimal) all was great no issues, no low oil pressure and no timing chain rattle!!! I guess when good Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic 5W-30 is allowed to pump around the engine it works ALOT better!!!
NOTE: keep an eye on coolant levels when first starting, level settles and needs attention.
Also... After sitting overnight after test drive, no leaks or drips of any kind.
Now to fix the AC... thats a must in TX 1000F heat!!!
Thanks for all yalls help and advice... hope this helps someone else troubleshoot their problems.
I believe my issue was oil related. I really do not know why my oil coked up like that, I went a couple times extended between oil changes, maybe 10K miles. I always used the Motorcraft Synthetic blend 5W20, now I use Pennzoil Platinum full synthetic 5W20.I have the same issue. So do think the main problem in the end was the oil pump o.tnhe type of oil you used?
