Might be handy to know what the true oil pressure is. If the oil pressure is OK, then some repair work should be considered.

>>From the Ford service manual:

Engine



The 3.8L engine has:
  • a V-block with six cylinders and splayed crankpins.
  • a distributorless ignition system.
  • a multiport, sequential fuel injection (SFI) system.
  • overhead valves.
  • hydraulic valve tappets for automatic lash adjustment.
  • connecting rod parting faces that are unique with an interference fit.
  • an engine dynamic balance shaft.

2000 GT coupe (Craigslist project. Fixed. Now my DD). Windsor to Romeo swap.
