Oil sensor light

Thanks for the input guys! It turns out that the contact on my oil pressure sensor was so wet with oil (from the filter loosening) that the contacts were swimming in it. I re-tightened the filter, sprayed a lot of contact cleaner around and bingo, no more light!

Oil sensor light

This morning while I was driving to work my oil sensor light came on. I pulled over, shut her down, and checked the oil level 20x over the next 10 minutes. The oil level was right in the middle of the two notches. When I started it back up the oil light was off and didn't come back on the remainder ...

Hello from Minnesota Dontcha Know!

So... happy with your decision to buy a Delica then? ;-) MB421471 is the part number for the front doors window run channel (the flocked rubber bit that the glass slides in). US$27 from Amayama.com. Also consider replacing the lower trim strips- the outer ones (MB421515 and MB421516) get hard with ...

Hello from Minnesota Dontcha Know!

Hi Everyone, Finally got the Deli home! Mother nature threw everything at us. Snow storms, ice storms, avalanches, 20 car pile-ups, and closed mountain passes. It was like that all the way from Seattle till about 6 hours from Minneapolis. The little Deli just chugged along as if nothing was wrong. W...

Hello from Minnesota Dontcha Know!

If you plan to use it in winter time, rust proof it as soon as you can: these tin metal japaneese are rusting very fast.... :shock: Lapprentis :M I've heard some good things about Fluid Film. Although it's DIY, it appeals to me more than paying a Ziebart $800 to spread tar around the undercarriage....

Hello from Minnesota Dontcha Know!

Welcome, Bob! I think you're about to drive the weirdest car in MN, you might need to get used to the stares :-) I took a 2-door '96 RAV4 through the Dakotas and Minnesota a few years ago, it was like I'd arrived from outer space. It was also long enough for me to have read so many posts about main...

Yes it is. I got a little ahead of myself!

Hello from Minnesota Dontcha Know!

Hi all, I'm flying in to Vancouver Monday, March 6th at which point I will be the proud father of a 1991 Delica Exceed! I have been crazed with the idea of owning a Delica for about a year, which coincidentally is about how long my wife has been completely irritated with me! :-D It was also long eno...
