oil in throttle body

Recommended Posts

pulled throttle body just to check to see if it was getting dirt and dust in there and found oil lying in the bottom.Also in the intake manifold.found little to no dust or dirt.Engine has not been smoking.Any ideas? got me worried.

I think you have a serious problem ans should unload your T4 to me right know for $500 before I have second thoughts. Actually don't worry. If there is no dirt, your OK. If your using an oil soaked air filter like a K&N type, you casn easily get oil dripping off of it when re-oiling it. I always get it when re-oiling mine, on my truck too. I would rather have a bit too much oil then not enough. I actually completely submerse the filter in the oil then hang it to drain. It can still drain for days after I put it back in. Now that I think about it again, you probably should unload it, TO ME. I'll even through in a slightly used nose splint.

I wont take less then 600.I am sure its engine oil.No oil in the tubing from the air cleaner and compared it to my engine oil and its the same.I checked the hose from the valve cover to the intake manifold and doesnt seem to be any oil in it.I had it out two weeks ago and ran fine and just started it up and no smoke.Worried,dont want to go through what kinarfi is going through right now.The nose splint does sound tempting...Something i could use should i decide to wax a trailer(LOL)

I went for ride fri, ran great, new controller, fun time,, loaded on trailer, went to change oil, wouldn't start!!?? Got a hold of mechanic from silverbullet, ckd compression 125 ,100, 45, " 0 " %&*^$#@((!!!! Well, better here than home, no help there for dumb old driver!! Silverbullet shop going to rebuild motor, get me going on rides, before I head home. He has been great so far, so no worries here!!! Have to be fast, not staying much longer...

All you have to do to check motor is pull hose off valve cover when motor is hot.If you see blow by or have smoke coming out you could have problem.It sound like its ok but always keep filter oiled and clean.

I would check the head gasket between 45 & 0. You may not need a rebuild, just a simple head gasket.

Sounds scarily familiar, with the engine running, pull the breather filter off the oil air separator and see if you can feel any air blowing out, should actually be a vacuum, if it's blowing air, you may be on your way to my problem and need to re-ring, suggest you check you compression also. Having oil in my intake was part of the reason I flipped my intake manifold, although I do like it a lot better that way, I was afraid that the oil was messing up my MAP sensor and the idle air thingy so I flipped it so the oil would drain into the cylinders and burn. The only disadvantage is that if you get water through your air filter, it also goes into the cylinder instead of pooling in the intake to evaporate over time, I towed my home one day in a storm and didn't run it long enough to get it warm and dry up the water after I got home and left some water in a cylinder. When it comes to compression checks, one thing I the machine shop found on mine was that the carbon had built up on the exhaust valves and that was why I could feel the air blowing out the exhausts, but the exhaust valves were good, but the intakes were worn and needed to be replaced.

Best of luck,

Jeff

Rick, Quiq & Kinarfi,

How many miles/km on your Troopers?

I think 3600 km, been getting little blow by on cannister.

I have 855 miles on it.It had 9 miles when i bought it and always carry a spare filter and change after every ride with the clean one.I have two hoses to the valve cover,one small from the intake manifold and a larger one going to the air intake before the throttle body.I disconnected both and have a very little air coming out the larger one but no noticeable smoke.

with out getting out of my chair to go downstairs to check for sure, I have about 5000 km on mine, but I know I ingested some dust when I first got it and hadn't snorkeled or changed filters

At one point, I put a small bottle between the intake manifold and the valve cover to collect the oil that was coming through the breather hose, eventually, I vented the air/oil separator via hose to where the hitch receiver is and capped off the line from engine to manifold.

They must have changed the design because mine does not have the seperator.

You should check your vent hose to you breather canister to check if the hose is pinched or the canister is pluged. This will curate pressure in the crankcase and push oil in the intake manifold please note and get back to me on what you find.

On mine, my rings were shot and I had tons of blow by, so I'm still in the final stages of putting it back together, see my "HELP, reringing my engine, and finding problems post. And please, get a good selection of shims in for us.

As mentioned in previous post i have no canister.Mine is an 09 and it did not come with one.See image,only canister is for coolant.Large hose from valve cover goes to fresh air intake and small hose to valve cover goes to intake manifold.

Wow, that's a lot of shiny and pretty, oh and clean too. Does the larger tube from the valve cover feed directly into the air tube?

yes it does,gotta look close and you can see it.That picture was taken right after i bought the trooper.It only had 9 miles on it and before i took it out for the first time i had removed the air filter box and installed the tube and K&N filter because of all the horror stories i heard about the stock one.

Then I would not worry too much on it. Whenever the engine is running there will always be a fine mist of oil in air. Going into it intake, like most vehicles do the mist will enter, hit the wall of the intake and start to form into bigger drops that could pool in the intake. I don't see as it being a problem, clean it out and run it.

      Hello Folks - newbie here with my first post so go easy on me.  I picked up a Buck 400 in May 2020 direct from Massimo when they were doing a closeout sale on the 400 models.  I read the reviews and was skeptical. 
      We live in a golf cart community  we do not plan any off roading - just some very mild work tasks like hauling firewood / brush etc.  Honestly, all we do is cruise around our neighborhood roads.  I pulled the trigger b/c the price was cheaper than a 2WD lifted golf cart and the Buck  had way more features.
      We have a few steep hills and after about 20 - 30 minutes of cruising, my check engine light comes on.  It only happens when we are going up or down one of the hills .  We head straight home and things seem fine the next day.  Light never comes on unless we tackle multiple hills during one ride.
      Should I be worried?  
      PS - Unit is 4 months old and has 258 miles on it - barely broken in.  I've yet to go full throttle on a flat or up a hill.

      Hey guys! My throttle cable broke in its housing. Can anyone tell me what aftermarket cable would work for a 1100 renegade Joyner?
      TIA

      Greetings all.  New to this forum, seems like the Textron area is pretty quiet but I’ll give it a try anyway.  I bought a 2017 Stampede 4 XTR last year, new but had been sitting on the lot here in Alaska.  Been pretty happy with it so far (other than oil filter access) but it’s started having an intermittent problem recently where the check engine light will flash  and the throttle pedal won’t respond properly.  Both times I was still able to drive, but would top out at about 1/4-1/3 throttle. The first time it did it, I tried clearing the codes and they came back.  But 20 minutes later I cleared and it’s been fine.  Yesterday it happened again, and I cleared them on the first try and it was fine.  Electrical connections all look fine.  The code is a P2138 , electronic throttle out of range.  Anyone else seen this?
       
      Ive only got about 200 miles on the machine, and I haven’t been thrashing it  
      on a side note, I’m considering a lift kit if anyone knows a good source as the long wheelbase definitely has some limitations in rough terrain?  And a front locking diff.  It seems like there isn’t a lot of aftermarket support for these machines, which is a shame as it’s a pretty good setup.  I really like the low range, and the engine braking.  Have Gone up and down some pretty long and steep mountain grades.

      We just bought a 2014 Massimo 1100 with only 27 drive hours on it. We took it out a couple of times and then the check engine light came on. We took it to an authorized massimo shop and they can't figure out what's wrong. Any advice?! We are in Utah.

      New-to-me 2012 CC Volunteer throttle cable broke during the wicked cold snap we had a few weeks ago (upstate NY). It was already a bit sticky, but at least it was usable. 
      Is it possible to replace it myself, or must I pay to have it hauled 50 miles to the nearest shop?  I can access both ends, but the majority of it is pretty buried from the top and underneath. 
      Any advice would be appreciated.
