I own an 1994, Chevy Silverado 1500, 6.5 Liter turbo diesel. I am experiencing oil pressure loss when I tow a trailer or put the truck under any bit of load.

Riding down the highway or even in town, the oil pressure remains constant at half or 275kp. When towing anything, after ten or so miles the oil pressure drops off dramatically down to red line or below 100kp.

I have changed the oil with 15w40 Castrol XL and added a quart of Lucas Oil treatment. I have also changed my engine oil coolant rad on the tow package.

I am at a loss and any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Shawn
