Re: Oil Pressure drops - Looking for solutions?

I'm mostly looking at the digital gauge, I'll be taking it out again today. I"ll look for the factory light to come on, don't know if the light was disconnected when I got the digital gauge.
Engine makes noise, but not like the lifters clacking, at least I don't think its that.

Seat belt won't latch

So after sitting for several years, for some reason my drivers seat belt won't latch. Is there a fix that doesn't require me removing the drivers seat?

Re: Oil Pressure drops - Looking for solutions?

So today I did 4 things I haven't done in 3 years:
1. Drove my xr more than a mile
2. Put gas (93 octane)
3. Drove the xr on the highway
4. Someone stopped me to ask about the car and he had stories to share!

Re: Oil Pressure drops - Looking for solutions?

I have an after market oil pressure gauge, new one I replaced the other one thinking it maybe the problem. But when I drove it on Tuesday it still dropped to 12 at idle. I will take it out later today if it isn't storming like yesterday.

Re: Oil Pressure drops - Looking for solutions?

I stopped by a local old school local engine builder/machine shop yesterday. He pulled out a 3x5 card that he saved on the 2.3 that said there was a new tech spec on it from 2 years ago, and it recommended 10w 60 oil. I had never heard of it before, but thought it was worth a try.

Re: Brass Hatch Striker Plates

Hey Everyone,

If those who are still interested in these raise your hands, and I will get the latest prices after the holidays. I would imagine s/h has went up since the last order.
