Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I hope that everyone had a great time over the holiday season. I see that there are a couple of different spark plugs that you can get for these engines. I know that the original plugs are iridium plugs. I am a ngk man and I see that the ngk iridium #bkr5eix-11 is among the list, would this be the best plug for this engine? what would you guys recomend? Thank you for your time.

On my Yukon, I got about 100,000 miles before I changed out iridiums, I have changed my Trooper plugs yet, how many miles do you have and how do your plugs look? My self, I'd stay with the iridiums, they don't seem to degrade very quickly, but I just hate changing things until I have too, then I put in what I think will last for ever and ever.

When I was having the cutting out problem I started changing out things in desperation.One of which was the plugs.I did replace them with Iridium and i think they were the NGK.

If you are having plug failure I would be looking other places for the cause. Today's plug should last 50,000 miles and I KNOW no one has put that kind of mileage on their Trooper. Can be anything from bad rings & seals to driving & operation style. There is a reason!

No everything is ok I am just asking because I took the plugs out to see how they were burning and I just never heard of a torch spark plug before. I just wanted to know which plug everyone here likes so I can write it down in my log book. Because If I replace any parts I try to get different parts then using china made parts thats all. And I am also a ngk fan. Thank you for your input its always welcome.

Hi Kinarfi how are you? My plugs seem to be burning good, Yes I think when I do replace them they will be ngk iridiums. Do you know if anyone uses mobil 1 fully syn oil in their troopers? If you ever come down to Arizona let me know, we will hook up to do some riding. That goes for everyone, as long as the timing is right. This thing called a job gets in the way sometimes. You take care Kinarfi and have fun on your trooper.

Im doing fine stevoz,I also use mobile 1 in mine.problem was it would just start cutting out as driving.it would not do it all the time and it would not last.I would stop rev her up a few times and it would be fine.sometimes it would do it 3 or 4 times while out for a ride and then again sometimes it would not do it at all.checked wiring,fuel pump,changed fuel filter,regulator,air filter,cleaned fuel tank twice,changed plugs,and still did it.I ended up changing ICU and since then i have had it out 3-4 trips now and no problems.

I had mine just stop running and then it would run seemed for no reason. Ended up running a groung wire to the computer external cover and fixed it. Discovered it while looking for the problem. just happened to groung the cover while trying it and it started. When I ungrounded it, it wouldn't. I use Mobile 1 15w-50 synthetic also with a larger oil pan, 9 quarts, and a larger oil filter, about twice the size of stock. Oil pressure stays good now.

Hi Lenny, about the oil pressure sometimes on a ride I notice that sometimes I stop and leave it idle for alittle bit my oil pressure light flashes and my gauge is low. But that is only sometimes. How accurate are these gauges ? I am not to impressed with them at all. My camo one is doing it and I only have about 550 miles on it. Did you have that problem too?

Thanks Stevozz

Glad it wasnt nothing major, but I am sure that you had alot of time into it. Yes I will be running mobil 1 fully syn in mine too, I really belive in fully syn motor oil. I already been putting it in my trans and both diffs.

Hi Rocmoc, how are you? do you also put mobli 1 in your trans and diffs?

Good morning stevozz,

Doing better after the bug I had last week.

I am using Castrol Syntec purchased at Pep Boys. I was using Royal Purple but too expensive. Used it once before the Castrol and I can't tell any diff.

The oil just gets too hot. The 2011 Troopers will come with an oil cooler to help. The gauge is probably ok as it shows OK when the engine is cool so it seems to be reading oil pressure. The pressure is just drooping from heat. Some of the others on here have added an oil cooler. You can get an adapter that goes between the engine block and oil filter to run the lines to and from for the cooler. I will also add a cooler when I get to it even though I may not need it anymore. My oil pan is a custom one I made out of aluminum so it disipates a lot of heat quickly. Low oil pressure should be a real concern.

Just wondering if anyone has a part number or any info on the adapter.Thanks Lenny
