Question about GPS

1 Answer

I currently own a FPV Torando Ute 2006 model with 76,000km on it. My oil pump gears has let go and therefore seized the motor. Is there a electronics switch that will disengage when low pressure oil is recognised within the electronic computer system shutting down the motor. I am up for $10,000 for a new motor and can't understand having had a car for 4 years how this could have happened. Is there some sort of manufacturers warrantly or comsumer protection order that I should follow up on. I would greatly appreciate your feed back. Cheers Ryan

Hi! I doubt that theres a switch available to disable the motor when low oil pressure is detected. The cure will be a motor replacement thats for sure. I strongly suggest that you get one from the junkyard to cut the cost. It's a wear and tear thing and I doubt that they will give warranty on this not unless that the motor will be replaced by the dealership itself. Hope this shed some light.

WHy is my engine locked up?

could be seized from lack of oil, water
could be a seized input shaft gear that has locked the crankshaft
could be water from the cooling system jammed in the compression cycle and blocking the piston movement--remove plugs and see if water runs out
It doesn't look good as all will result in a motor removal and pull down
get a workshop manual or discuss the problem with a bike shop as there may be a specific common failure

How do I change the oil pump?

Drive your Tuson upwards onto ramps or possibly lifts. You can implement a jack, but brace entry wheels so they don't really roll. Set the emergency break to be sure the car doesn't recede.
    1- Drain typically the engine oil and eliminate the negative battery connection. Take out typically the timing belt along with the oil pan. Take away the oil screen, your gasket, the petroleum pressure switch, your oil filter clump and gasket.
    2- Take away the plug cap in the oil pump perhaps the case with Method 09213-33000. Insert some sort of 0. 32 inch screwdriver throughout the plug hole whereas plugging the left side within the engine block. The screwdriver really should go in at a minimum 2. 4 in ..
    3- Pull through the pump made gear, the left counter top balance shaft bolt and therefore the front case mounting bolts. Note the program plans and locations within the bolt. Remove the way it is and gasket and then the two counter balance shafts out of your block.
    4- Separate that oil pump protect and gears with the case. Remove the screwdriver on the plug hole and eliminate the pump driven gear and then the left counter stabilize shaft bolt. Take the essential oil pumpcover belonging to the case. Install Brand new Oil Pump
      5- Assemble the Water pump and Timing belt and all other assemblies you had removed earlier.
      6- Fill the crankcase with the correct level. Start your Tuson engine and check out leaks.

I have a 250sx and had the same proble my kicker wont go down what do i do

did you recently overheat the engine? it may be locked up. put the bike on a milk crate so the back wheel is off the ground. put the tranny in 3rd gear, and spin the back wheel. if the wheel wont turn, you burned up your motor, (seized your piston to the cylinder by overheating or running out of oil) or fried your transmission. if it turns the motor, you probably broke a tooth on the kicker gear anddthe broken piece is stuck in the gear..

Rebuiling timing gears in a 2006 sportster 1200 xlc. Need a picture or reference for gear replacement and cam position

The cams are numbered 1 through 4 starting at the rear going towards the front. The new oil pumps do not have to be timed like the '76 and earlier models did. Install #1 cam, install #3 and #4 cams and time them with each other then install the #2 timing it with the pinion gear, the #1 and the #3 cam.

Good Luck

Oil pump is seized and needs to be replaced.... This is common to ford engines.

The distributor is driven off the cam and then has a rod going into the oil pump... when the pump seizes it will sheer the roll pin or break the oil pump drive.

Starter motor spins but doesnt turn motor,with side cover off starter spins the the starter gear but in the freewheeling direction,the was a couple of times bike has just died over last few days, motor...

Yes indeed a burnt coil would produce very low speed, but if 2 coils are burnt out then it can spin in the opposite direction.. Low engine oil level will eventuality result in drying out the clutch/gear assembly. Also get the dynamo checked along with the charging rectifier(battery charger)---. It is possible that the dynamo generating more current & the rectifier passed it along, causing a short. Which eventually got to the starter and maybe has burnt out 2 coils instead of 1 !? ...sodeep

Engine Seized up on a 2006 Pontiac G6

check the oil and coolant levels. if coolant is low pull the sparkplugs and try to turn the engine over if still not turning free remove the serpentine belt and try again, if it turns over ok check the pullyes on the front of the motor to see if they all turn free by hand. a serpentine belt can prevent an engine from turning over if a tensioner, idler, water pump, alternator, or power steering pump is siezed up or starting to seize. being your battery is bad I'm thinking probably the alternator is seized. hope this helps mike.

Bernette 800D seized up

Please don't use WD40 on your sewing machine, WD40 is an alcohol based cleaner and will do the opposite of lubricate. Take your machine to a certified Bernina Repair shop, they will have a look at the timing and lubricate all of your gears. Lubricant will dry out over time, grease turns to putty and oils turn to varnish after several years of non-service. Lint is attracted to moisture, moisture being those key areas of any machine. Lint acts like an oil wick and will draw out your lubricant from key areas. It then begins to attract dust and other nasty things over the years to become grit. Your motor begins to burn out due to stress trying to move all of these clocked gears, cams and shafts. Take your machine in!
