Yes, you must pull the oil pan to check the pump and screen. If you do that, verify the pickup screen is tight as well as clean, as a loose screen will draw air into the system. The oil pump has 4 or 5 tolerances that must be met for the pump to work properly. Check the pump for scoring, scratching, or worn beyond specs. If you need these specs, I have them.
My first reaction is oil in the cylinders, that's why I suggested a compression test. This will also give you a chance to read the plugs as well.

This truck has idle fluxuation while in "park" tach goes from around 700--1500 no other problem never stalls and rpm drops to normal when shifted into drive, and it does not fluxuate when you come to a stop. ie....like at a stop sign. anybody else ever have this problem.. Thanks
