That’s what I was thinking, here’s the thing , ever since I picked it up from the dealership, it’s had a starting problem, I put the charger on it over night , had the charging system checked there at the dealership, I’m thinking it was a bearing getting ready to spin

This issue sounds like a bummer. Yeah, you are having more problems than usual.
When it comes to the "spun bearing" or "seized bearing". The reason for the bearing failure does not originate with the "bearing". (Unless it was installed improperly during a rebuild.)
Big end rod failures are typically initiated by cavitation from not enough oil volume, too low of oil level (suck an air bubble), not enough oil pressure per every 1K RPM or too many dry starts without an adequate protective oil film on the bearings before the start. The secondary reason for a big end failure is the seizure of the piston in the cylinder while the crank is still rotating. Usually, when the piston seizes (due to detonation or improper piston ring to cylinder clearance), the small end will fail first and saw a hole in the crank case. In the case of stronger rods, the rod will bend and beat the living daylights out of the big end. The color and condition of the bearing will provide forensic evidence of the cause of failure.
Let's hope you have a small issue that does not cost 10K. However, with your pressure dropping to 0 while driving is a bad sign.
Hopefully you were running high quality oil and a proper filter.

Good Luck. Cheers!

Just reviewed your thread re; your issue with the truck at the dealer. The clogged cat's could be the origination of your current issue. The extremely high crank case pressure may have disrupted the oil flow and caused indirect cavitation. The cat's "melting" to the point of clogging could be a clue of a lean condition also.
The extended periods of sitting did not help and you do not know how it was treated or handled.

Ive seen it all too often. Some of the experts around here seem to think otherwise. Most of that is based off what their best friends neighbors teachers hairdresser said that a low millage srt10 is bulletproof. Im no expert like VR1 i just stayed at a Holiday Inn last night..
trussman and Wildcard like this.

It has the Mobil 1 one, what’s recommended I had it service the only time I had it cost me $130 to do it, and it was full, other than the TB, cold air and headers it’s completely stock, and the tailpipe was black, so I don’t think it was running lean at all! Again I’m assuming how it was ran before me

Black as a normal exhaust or an excessive amount of soot?

Do your forensics, you will see.......

I'd bet that the high crank case pressure situation compromised the engines ability to properly maintain oil flow. It only takes a few moments to initiate bearing damage.
The manufacturer's intentionally run engines rich to prevent the platinum cats from melting away. My engine stock ran 11:1 A/F at WOT... FAT.

How many miles on your truck?

Good Luck
