an/the excellent reason to run synthetic 5-30, 5-40, or even, 0-x rated
synthetic .   The 0 doesn't mean } no lube properties }   it just means it
flows well ....
* In fact, if your low oil pressure is because of loose bearings, I would
trade off more pressure when cold .... for the increased flow of the lower
rated oil ....   I could be wrong, however (g)...
