Oil pressure issues

Recommended Posts

I unloaded and washed the trooper today. I store it at a friends , and noticed while backing it in the oil light was on dim and the gauge read really low.

its in a tight area and could not get around it well to check it out. I did notice that the oil pressure sending unit is warpped in foil, I wonder if for some reason getting it wet coulc cause a problem ? I will look into it during the day, check oil level, maybe change the filter incase it internally came apart, and as a last resort check oil pressure with a mech gauge.

Has anyone heard of oil pressure issues ?

I have the opposite issue, my gauge is pinned full pressure as soon as it comes off idle but while idling it is at normal pressure just vibrates a lot. i assume the sender unit is cheap or doesn't take to mud and water well I'm not overly concerned with mine. if yours is consistently low or doesnt act funny i would check it with a mechanical gauge just to be safe.

sorry not much help.

How low are you talking ? enough to turn on the light ? its on really dim, its alot brighter with key on engine off. I hope its an issure with water trapped in the foil cover but really dont see how . I guess I should change the oil and filter and see what happens. I hope its not an internal problem

It was never reading this low before. I was thinking and I think that there may be a oil pressure switch for the light and the sending unit for the gauge, but maybe not since there to wires to the sending unit. I burnt my hand on the headder trying to check it ao I will get to it on sunday or next week

i had this problem the first time i took my buggy out...checked the 2 wires on the sending unit. Noticed the white press on terminal plug seemed kinda loose. Took the terminal plug off and used a screwdriver to press the ends of the terminals tighter so it would hold better when placed back on the prong....Havent had a problem since and yeah the headers will get you every time. My oil pressure gauge bottomed out but the light never came on. Hope that helps some.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.
