I know diagnosing issues over the Internet is haphazard at best, but wondering what the thoughts are on an issue with my 1996 2.7L regular cab with 255,000 miles, motor rebuilt at 180,000 miles.
This morning when warming up the truck it started to make a clicking sound coming from the motor - sounded like something in the fan, but was coming from the motor.
Driving in I noticed a loss of power and when slowing down or stopping, the oil light comes on. Checked the oil and it is full. Shortly after that when decelerating/downshifting on a slight down hill, the oil light came on in conjunction with the check engine light and the engine cut out. I was actually just getting to my destination so I popped the clutch and it started back up and parked it.
Anyone experience this and/or thoughts? A few people at work said possibly a bad oil pump, possible bad injector or clogged fuel filter, or worse serious internal cam or crank issues.
