I am afraid there is more going here then just a driveway fix. Put a true oil pressure guage on it is one idea.

Oil pump is on the front of the motor. Perhaps an issue. Clogged pickup tube maybe.

Do you have a code reader? Perhaps a code is also stored that may give a clue.

I might even suggest pulling the oil filter housing and seeing if you can determine anything.

no codes but the owner of the truck did tell me when he do his oil changes he does not always change his filter he would change his filters every 2-3 times he changes his oil

This is obviously is a lack of maintance and owner awareness. And now you get to fix it. This is sounding more and more like a rebuild or a crate motor needed.

Thanks for reporting back. Glad you got it fixed.

Most likey it was oil starvation from an improper filter and lack of maintance as well.

Good Job Binhtran! If you had taken it to a Ford Dealer they would have rebuilt the motor for you to fix the problem. Hope that is the only part damaged, but, time will tell.
