Re: Late introdcution

Very nice Pup. But what I'm really jealous of is the nice saguaro in the front yard. I used to have a saguaro in my front yard but then moved to the Dallas area. Miss me some AZ.

Re: Low oil pressure.

Solution!!!
The shop manual lists several possibilities for low oil pressure. One being compromised filter media. I changed the filter and - yea!!! No more low pressure. It was a Wix filter, which I've been using. New one is the same. Hopefully just a weak sister.

Re: Low oil pressure.

BTW - I do have the turbo and found one reference that the turbo shaft lacks lubrication below about 30 psi.

Re: Low oil pressure.

Hadn't been aware of the oil pressure relief valve. Did a search and will check it out. I suppose at this point if the spring is weak or broken the only option is a Rube Goldberg attempt to find a matching spring. I spent about an hour this morning looking through my factory shop manual. Very poorly...

Low oil pressure.

Recently as the temps have risen well into the 90’s my oil pressure light will come on at idle. I changed out the 10w30 for 15w40 and same result. I’ve also got a gauge and it is pretty low at idle. Pressure is fine at any revs above idle. Do I have anything to worry about?

Re: Blue Ridge Parkway

Cool info. Looks like we'll be driving South to North probably from Cherokee on 6/8 or 9. Not sure of pace or number of stops.

Blue Ridge Parkway

Wifey would like to drive the parkway this summer, probably early June. If I happen to be successful in convincing her of the joy of a “P’Upsploration” I was wondering if there might be any members near the parkway with whom we may perhaps share some P’Up lore and possibly a meal. Heading from TX to...

Re: O where, o where has my coolant gone?

Found it! Borrowed a pressure tester from Auto Zone. Feel kinda silly as it was right up front. The top radiator hose had a tiny leak at the thermostat housing. In fact it was somewhat intermittent. Must have been so slow it evaporated from engine heat and maybe closed up some when hot. With a cold ...

Re: O where, o where has my coolant gone?

I haven't noticed it getting darker. I refresh it every week or so. Sometimes something small can be a harbinger of something bigger to come but this has been pretty steady.

I guess I'll need to get a bit more desperate before spending 90 bucks on a pressure tester. :?

O where, o where has my coolant gone?

Wondering if there are any ideas on where I might be losing a small amount of coolant. Since I've gotten the truck I've replaced all by-pass hoses and other coolant supply hoses. Replaced a leaky heater core with a nice used item, buttoned down some slow leaks at the oil cooler and the rat's nest of...

His FB page looks very legit - lots of friends and a fiance. Just raised an eyebrow or two that he was trolling for my truck.
