I posted on here about my oil sending unit being bad havent drove the truck any since it started messing up my truck has good oil pressure on a mechanical gauge so i was wondering if it was ok to drive it ive got to pull some stuff this weekend and my truck shut down or something because of that sensor . Really dont know alot about this i know when a powerjoke thinks its got low oil pressure it will shut down i just want to make sure mine want. Any info will be appreciated thanks.
to my knowledge lack of oil pressure does not shut this engine down.

Nope, won't shut down. Mines been running for over a month and a half with a bad sender with no problems, only the check guages light is on. I installed a mechanical oil pressure guage just to be sure I had pressure.

There is no low oil shutdown on the cummins to my knowledge and I wrench on ford diesels they don't have one either. Little side note the power stroke heui injection system on the 6.0 and 7.3l engines wasn't designed by ford or intertrashional it was designed by caterpillar and if they would leave it alone it's extremely reliable
