The oil pressure has been kind of low for a while but recently has started bouncing around some going lower then back to where it usually is. Trying to figure out if the oil pump is the only issue.

Hi, Andrew...I would check the oil pressure with a mechanical oil pressure gauge to rule out a problem with the sender or OEM gauge.  See if the reading is the same as what you see at the dash instruments.  This will rule out gauge error.

If the oil pressure shows the same tendencies, I would question the oil circulation, possibly a clogged oil pump pickup screen.  If you drop the pan and deal with the pump and screen, it would be smart to install a new set of rod and main bearings at the same time to be safe.  Check the crank journals and Plastigage for roundness.

Let us know your findings...

Moses
