I slowed down and my oil pressure went to zero. I shifted into neutral and immediately shut off the engine. I coasted to the side and stopped. I let the engine sit for about 5 minutes and tried to restart it. It fired right up and the oil pressure came back. I started driving again and got about a mile before it happened again. Luckily I got off the interstate next to the exit for Walmart. I walked a mile and a half to Walmart and bought a Fram filter ( they didn't have a Purolator to fit my truck) 5 quarts of Castrol High Mileage oil and a drip pan.
I drained the oil completely , changed the filter and refired my engine. It held 60 lbs of pressure and I continued my trip of another 85 miles. No further problems with oil pressure. I made the return trip of 110 miles and had no problems with the oil pressure. I think the additive I put in the oil caused this problem and would caution anyone contemplating using this additive to rethink it. If I hadn't paid attention to my oil pressure guage , I would have lost my engine for sure with the complete loss of oil pressure.
