    Warning Light Issues

    My brake and filter warning lights came on the other day (85 BJ 60, 3B). They came on at low idle, then seemed to dissapear after RPM was up for a while. My thought was it was the alternator. I tried to eliminate other possible causes first; drained the sedimentor, checked vaccum, checked...

    Startup Woes?

    My 85 BJ 60 has been acting up lately at startup. She fires up fine then shuts down after 10-15 seconds. I hear a click coming from the passenger side fire wall and then the engine stops; i fire it up again and it runs fine. Any ideas????

    Clutch Woes ????

    So im not sure if this is the right place to post, but since the truck is an 85 BJ60 - 3B it might be appropriate. I have been losing clutch fluid; top up maybe once a week. Checked for leaks and could not find any. Over the last couple of days i have noticed the clutch pedal feels different and...

    Strange Temp Readings?

    Loosing Coolant?

    I have been having to top up my coolant every couple of weeks for some time now (85 bj60 450000KM). I have checked the hoses and any other areas that seem feasible for a leak to occur, but have found nothing. I'm hoping i have a small pin hole leak somewhere, and its not the head. Can anyone...

    Temp Gauge - Overheating?

    The other day i noticed my temp gauge getting close to red lining. Pulled over, felt the rad (wasn't too hot), and waited a few minutes. Fired her up (85 BJ 60 - 3b) and operating temp was normal. I was thinking my thermostat was going, so i replaced it. I drove around and the operating temp was...
