It sure is, but when you get to a certain "low" point with Powerstrokes, you won't be driving them anymore. Because they can't build low pressure oil which builds high pressure.

This is the only oil issue posted. And sorry but you didn't specify how low is to low, and I said they will run low on oil

Ahh but it was still running wasnt it? As mark stated already, once it stops building pressure the injectors dont fire. So yet again, your answer does NOTHING to solve the OP's original problem.

While your pulling codes, which takes a OEM level scan tool as they aren't OBDII compliant, I would recommend checking the IPR duty vs ICP pressure.

One issue I had on my truck was the strainer stopped up in the tank. It actually caused multiple eroneous codes. The fuel pressure would get low and the truck would lose power. Eventually it went to a no run situation. Then it would cool off and run again.

If the oil is old they can lose power from aeriation.

Like everyone said check codes first.

Here is some good info.

This is the info on the tank strainer.
