Re: Oil pump failures.

I'm not familiar with Ford engines, I'm guessing there was nothing wrong with the "pump"... the "relief" or bypass valve (a safety to keep your filter from exploding should something get plugged up) being hung open was bleeding pressure off... or there's a bunch of crud sucked against the pickup screen and pulling the cover released the suction on it, allowing it fall back in the pan???
