96 Thunderbird v-6. Friend says when the motor warms up, it loses oil pressure and starts knocking. To me it sound like it needs a oil sending unit, maybe oil pump. What do you guys think?

If it is knocking after it warms up, most likely is the oil pump sucking trash out of the bottom of the pan. Pull the pan and check the bearings. If they look good throw a new pump in there and start running good synthetic oil, and hope it stays together.

Tighten the loose nut behind the wheel. Sounds like a dumb question the the ASE test from last night. Knock = excessive clearance.

time for a long block.
X2. I have seen this a dozen times. And 90% of the time customer insist on getting an oil pump. Then they have that sad look on their face when the problem is still there and have waisted money.
