View Full Version : No oil pressure when I first start

08-05-2005, 07:54 AM
When I first start my CJ for the first 2 seconds thereís no oil pressure. I can hear the sound the engine running without oil. Is there anyway to fix that? Iím thinking Iím putting a lot of wear on the engine. Does anyone else get this?

Kev you have a couple of choices it is because there is no check balls in after market oil filters so get a factory oil filter of get a remote oil filter system which usually gets a PH8A filter then go to Toyota and get a filter for a 76 landcruiser fits and works very well and it has a check ball so all the oil doesn't drain back down into the oil pan .

The other thing you can do is change to synthetic oil to help with dry start ups but the problem is they find and make all oil leaks way worse.

You can also try oil additives like lucas or prolong or Slick 50.

You can also pick up an oil pump rebuild kit (about $24.00) if you ask for the whole new pump they will look at you funny because the pump is part of the block:D

Well good luck Pm me if ya got more questions

Just what I need, another wagon!

That lucas works good -just add a quart of that !

But then what tod said would probably be the proper fix

Nothing is fool-proof to a talented fool

never turn it off
or maybe remove the oil pressure gauge

I am trying to feel sorry for you but I just can't seem to do it.
