  • 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.

Best Inexpensive Air Deflator?
« on: November 06, 2011, 10:47:18 PM »
Ok so I am going to get Deflators soon, what are good inexpensive deflators you guys are using and recommend? I am leaning towards Sun Performance Quick Air Deflators:

What do you guys think?

I used them for years & they work well. However they cannot be set to a specific PSI so you have to babysit them with your gauge.

Any suggestion on something you can set that doesnt cost $65+ (i.e. Stauns) that works well?

For the price, I don't like Stauns plus I have heard that they stop working properly after a while. Absolute Offroad had some recently that were about $40 and I think thery are tunable to a specific PSI. Not sure though, call and ask about their deflators, tell 'em Adonis sent ya ;)

After using Ted's on several occasions bought the TerraFlex deflators from Desert Rat for $17. Simple to use and they deflate fast.

Can you set the PSI on those?

They're convenient to store, but as you most likely know, have no way to stop the egress of air from the tire. Best case scenario is, you know your tire's at 36psi. you start the deflation (in your driveway) and time how long it takes to reach 20/14/12 psi. Then, when you're on the trail, you set them to work, watch your clock, and unscrew them in succession as they reach their target pressure.
Stauns are the best product made for the money. Set 'em and forget 'em.

I have owned just about all of them even two of the crazy priced Mil-Spec ones. I think the ARB deflator is the most accurate and fastest out of them all. The Stauns get clogged and dirty after a while and slow down releasing air the lower you get in PSI. I had my ARB deflator since 07' and it still works like new with zero maintenance. It really shines when you let down to 5,10, or 15 PSI. I use to run 7-10 PSI when I used pizza cutter tires. The unit is hi-vis easy to see and large enough never to lose.

I don't remember the brand, but the set and forget type I helped Defibvt setup took a while, but once done they were easy to use and shut off automatically at the setup pressure.

I have a set that was given to me. I love them. They stop letting air out at the desired pressure. Ill have to get them out of the X and take a pic.
