  • PitSnipe (Kyle): Wow, I have not heard of this issue. 15 hour job for a $50 part is nuts. Hopefully someone that knows of this issue will speak up.

  • downs44: Got an 06 that just went through SMOD. Got everything replaced. Now my low oil pressure light is flickering on after the engine warms up and the truck is at idle. Doing some digging on the forums it looks like a common problem is the rear timing cover gallery gasket leaking and causes the symptoms. Looks like a 15 hour or so repair for a $50 part. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and any words of advise. To save some dialogue, the oil pressure sensor is about a year old and I changed the oil and filter after i noticed the light and that did not fix the issue.

While we don't have the camping site setup yet, it looks like our run list is pretty much complete.  Let us know what you'd like to sign up for and we'll add you to the list on SCCX, or you can post over there if you're part of the forum

Saturday October 6th : Trail Day 1:

Historical / Geological Run:
Leader Celt's Dad

Trail Leader:
2. Siberia
Tail Gunner

Drivers Meeting 9:00am
On the Move at 9:30am
Estimated return 2:00 - 3:00

Difficulty Rating 4-5 (depending on current conditions)

Trail Leader: Jayrat

Drive to trailhead  @ Canyon Sin Nombre and S2
Finish: Fish Creek / Split Mtn.

Ham / CB Freq: TBD at Driver Meeting

Limited to 13 Rigs

Trail Leader:
Canyon Sin Nombre/Fish Creek Wash
Tail Gunner:RikRong

Pinyon Mtn (Difficult/Black-ish).

Requirements: 4WD with capabilities for 4L.
                        Good recovery points front and rear.
                        Off road tires (AT/MT etc.) no street cross over types.

Comms: 2m 146.535
  Info: This trail has a high probability of some trail damage mostly rock rash from the squeeze depending on the line you choose or lack of doing what the spotter is suggesting you do. Heart Attack hill is not for everyone. It's steep and long, you will experience a fair amount of sliding and three wheeled stands due to the IFS. You need to have good driving skills but it's a whole lot of fun. There are a few more obstacles along the trail that are fun but not terrible. I will do everything possible to get everyone through it as safely and damage free as possible. This is hands down my favorite trail in our desert!

  Route: Begin at Pinyon Mtn Rd. off of S2 right outside of Shelter Valley AKA Earthquake Valley: (,-116.3729314,7592m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x80da2beec01d028b:0xe2ac6d2dc9614163!8m2!3d33.056157!4d-116.3411238 ) We'll continue East along Pinyon Mtn and exit Fish Creek Wash and continue on to Split Mtn Rd. Take that North and hit Hwy 78 West until we get by the ranger station off of Quarry Rd. Shortly after that I plan to head out onto the Goat Trail which has some fun ridgeline travel another fun drop and a few minor off camber obstacles through a wash. We will come out into the San Felipe Wash and head back West and get to play around in some good sized sand dunes and come out in Borrego Springs for a re-fuel. There are no other fuel points along this trail and it wouldn't make sense to go into Salton City for fuel as it's too far out of the way for this planned route. We will head back to camp from Borrego Springs as a group when everyone is ready unless you/we want to stay in town for food or whatever.

  This will be a long day and a re-fuel will most likely be necessary if you are operating one of the gas guzzlers out there. Bring what you want to eat and a little extra in case somebody breaks. Bring lots of water and at least a warm jacket and blanket for everyone in your vehicle. I don't plan to have any comms mandatory but if you have a 2M bring it. I don't plan on stopping very much and smelling the desert petunias (See 1st sentence in this paragraph) but I do plan to stop and have lunch somewhere probably in the shade of Fish Creek. This trail is a whole lot of fun and not The Spectre of Death many make it out to be. Yes you can get into trouble on it quickly but that's exactly why there will be spotters (Probably me) on the difficult parts to mitigate issues. I'm thinking 5 vehicles total but I will stretch those numbers if the extras are self contained. If you have questions ask them or PM me and I really look forward to seeing you guys out for this years CANVAZ!

Leader: Celt
Tail Gunner:

Day 2: Sunday October 7th

Vehicle limit: None.

Vehicle requirements: Highly suggested off road AT or MT tires. Recovery points front and rear suggested.

Comms: 2m desired but none required 146.535.

Suggestions: Bring food for lunch at Calcite Mine, extra in case of breakdown. Bring jackets, blankets and plenty of water for everyone in your vehicle i.e. 1 gallon per person per day. Temps in this area can vary widely from really cold and windy to hot by day to cold at night.

Trail description: This is a classic trip up to a mine where Calcite was mined during WWII which provided what was needed for the Norton bomb sight in the B-25's B-17's over Europe and the Pacific Theaters of war so it's a pretty historic place all things concerning. Getting up there is a steep run with loose rock and dirt. Conditions are constantly changing. Some off camber spots. If you are not comfortable with a steep dropoff to one side and steep hillside to another this might be a point to consider. It's certainly not a black run but moreso light gray-ish. There are no bypasses and it has a couple obstacles that are pretty easily passable. Up on the top there is some amazing views of the Salton Sea, Borrego and Ocotillo Wells. It's a relatively short trip but what I plan to do is get there via the Military Wash and stop at some of Patton's bombing and strafing ranges where the area is still littered with projectiles and a few targets of opportunity. On the way back we will hit the Tectonic Wash which gives a fun trip back towards Borrego Springs where if time allows we will stop at Font's Point. For anyone who has not seen this place it's not something to be missed. After that we can head into Borrego Springs and re-fuel and head back to camp.

We're about 2 months away , so I'm just touching base .
We are still working on an actual Base camp but with the heat it's been hard to go scouting,
by the end of the month we should have it narrowed down
Cheers Jay
