This engine is only the 4ZE1 2.6L EFI in the USA spec-models. The engine will run for a very long time with proper maintenance. Oil pressure falling only after warm-up indicates that the oil, when cold, is thick enough to make the pressure sending unit sense the oil. When it heats up the sending unit may not detect it as the oil thins out. The sending unit is what makes the gauge give an indicator its signal.

I would check the sending unit first, as your concern does not indicate a clattering engine or other problem. This model engine has a circuit that shorts the ignition to ground and kills the engine if the oil pressure ACTUALLY falls below a set minimum. Indicators of this problem are a loud clattering in the engine, as well an engine that will start and then stall for no reason.

Good luck!

Whatr makes oil sludge form under Izuzu Trooper 1988 Model


great question, (old)
oil and water do that.
or not changing oil until 25,000 miles like some dweeb, synthetic oil users suck in to the lie.
or driving only 1 mile per day (short trips)
the engine needs to reach full operating temp to burn off all that water.
gasoline burns into CO2 and water. so water happens
here.

or its a FORD (LOL)

P2285 code 6.0 litre ford deisel long cranking before starting after starts runs great but oil pressure gauge drops at idle


bad bearings on crank or worn oil pump. Pressure will be up when cold, but will drop when engine warms up. Check for knock in lower end. If so, bad crank bearings.

1997 GMC Sonoma with 4 cyl engine. The truck runs great, but after the engine warms up, the oil pressure drops to around 12 from 50 when cold. is this the oil pump and how do i change?


Depending on oil type (IE: synthetic, etc) this is normal. If using conventional oil then I'd be concerned. To replace oil pump you'll need to remove pan and it is bolted to lower part of engine.

ISUZU TROOPER 3L injectors, what oil pressure do they require to make them work


at cranking the oil pressure has to be approx 5 mPa before they start to work electrically also, oil pressure at rail varies from 4 to 28 mPa. on Tech2 scanner in data list rail oil pressure should be close to desired and when engine not running sensor should read 0 - 0.2 mPa if higher or a negative value when engine not running this indicates problem with rail oil pressure sensor which is a common problem.

1996 Trooper with pretty decent rear main leak. Can this be repaired without pulling the engine? Also not holding oil pressure, I assume the leak is the issue as I see no other problems but open to...


Bad leak at the rear main wont give you low oil engine pressure ,its sign that the main bearings are worn or the thrusts .
Check the crank pulley end float and lift first but the main can be done in place drop the gearbox and flywheel.

91 trooper isuzu 4 cyl,runs bad when cold,where is the sensor/


The coolant temp. sensor is located under the intake manifold at the #1 intake port. It is not easy to access. Check the connector for corrosion.
It maybe accessable through the right wheel opening over the tire. Good luck

Don't start after oil change


I HAVE A TROOPER 3.O L THE SAME AS YOU AND I KNOW THAT WHEN CHANGING OIL YOU MUST USE 5-30 OR 5-40 FOR THIS ENGINE REASON BEING IS THAT THE OTHER GRADE DOESNT CREATE THE SAME OIL PRESSURE AND IF THE OIL PRESSURE IS NOT CORRECT THESE ENGINES WILL NOT RUN BEEN THERE DONE THAT
