Hey guys, just a post about a 2012 MUV700 with low oil pressure.
I inspected the machine had very poor drive and then just stopped driving all together. I done a oil pressure test and had 20psi instead of 114psi which is spec. I have replaced the oil pump and oil pump chain as they were worn out, also have replaced the torque convertor, clutch linier solenoid, cleaned out the valve body, all the oil galleries inside the front of the engine as well as the oil cooler.
Once i got the machine going again it had about the same amount of drive and i only have 30psi oil pressure from all checks of oil pressure following the service manual.
Just curious if anyone else has had a similar issue?
I know they have an oil screen in the bottem end which can cause low oil pressure if blocked but i do not want to disassemble the bottom end straight away. If anyone has any ideas would be appreciated.
