Default Oil not pumping

My oil pressure dropped to "0" and engine began to knock. A day or 2 later when I started the truck the pressure was back up and after a few minutes it began to drop then the engine starte to knock and eventually the pressure went back to zero. I replaced the oil pump with a new high volume pump but still have the same problem. Is there anyone else out there that has had this same problem or knows what is wrong. Please help. 2001 Dodge Ram 5.2 L V8 Magnum

Silly question but you do have the proper amount of oil in the engine right???? Sounds like the truck will prime at initial start up but then lose oil pressure.........You may have some gunk in the oil valleys / plumbing that needs to be flushed out.......Get some SEA FOAM....Follow the directions.......clean the crank case out a couple times........Also make sure that your Battery and Alternator are in good order. EGR valve need replacement?????? Sending unit gone bad?????
