  1. Hi, I drive a Cherokee XJ 1997 manual transmission. Over the past couple of weeks I have noticed the engine oil indicator behaving in an abnormal manner : 1. On a cold engine it shows a good oil pressure and as you increase the acceleration the oil pressure increases 2. ‎once the engine is heated to normal temperature at an RPM of approx 2k - 3k the oil indicator drops to Zero. 3. ‎when I put the car in neutral the engine oil again increases to a normal reading 4. ‎at low rpms like 1k or at rpm above 3.5k the engine oil pressure is at normal condition Any idea if this issue is to do with only the oil pressure sensor or with any other part. BTW I have checked the oil via the dipstick and the oil is at the normal level and the oil has been used for 4000 km. Thanks
  2. Truly one of the best drives that we have had in Carnity. It had everything one can imagine, huge bowls, massive tall dunes giving us ample opportunities for side sloping, technical dunes and most importantly, absolute beautiful virgin dunes. Big thanks to gaurav for leading us through this amazing terrain and also to Rahim Bhai for the sweep duties to ensure the convoy was moving continuously at the necessary pace. Ofcourse this drive would not have been what it was without the entire team's effort to ensure a smooth and fast paced drive. Absolutely loved it!! Look forward to more trips to this area
  3. I shall be coming only early in the morning possibly by 5 or 6 am at the deflation point or where you guys might be camping. Saleem mentioned that he would be coming in the night itself.
  4. @Gaurav. Noted. Not yet sure if I will come the previous night or on the day of the drive. But will be there before time.
  5. What better way to start the 2018 season, by having a full day drive at Al Wagan on 12th Jan 2018. It will be the first drive to Al Wagan for Carnity Group and hopefully the first of many more. The plan is to meet up on Thursday evening at Al Wagan around 10 pm and camp there for the night. We shall start our drive early morning on Jan 12th. The drive will be split in two sections, with the first being one stretch of dunes. We shall return via the sabkha area back to Al Wagan town for the Friday prayers and also to finish our lunch. We would then return to the desert via the sabkha area and head towards more deeper wagan, as per time permits. This is an Intermediate level drive, so no newbies and fewbies are advised to join. This requires the best of the driver and cars so please sign up only if you are 100% confident. This drive requires a lot of dedication, discipline, and commitment to continue driving in rigorous off-road terrain and keep the convoy moving at all the times. It is very important to reiterate to everyone to ensure that your car is in the best of condition with all necessary fluid checks done, air filter check is done, 5 good working condition tires, etc. Further, due to the nature of the area, I do recommend that to carry only the essentials that are needed for the drive to reduce the weight in your car.

  7. Desert Sweihan

    I am in as well. It's good to have an early morning drive...looking forward... by the display pic for the event is awesome..
  8. Strap vs Cable vs better option

    If you are looking at a cheap strap that would last you a single day, you might be better of without one. The ones that you mentioned might not even last one tug let alone one day. It's better you invest in a good rope / strap with good rated hooks. The hooks need to be rated for 3.5 tons, and the rope has to be rated up-to 13 tons approx.
  9. Full day drive - 15 Dec

    Wonderful looking drive Rahim bhai. We are still working to get the car ready for the drive. Hope to make it.
  10. Change of Wheel

    Also if you are able to change it, just ensure that you can changeto preset stations from the new steering audio control. In my 2010 Pajero I could not flip to the preset station. Instead it would goto the next frequency...say from 89.1 to 89.2 I took it to habtoor to check on this and they said that was normal behaviour.. I didn't ask a single question after that statement.
  11. Sand Mountains Desert Drive in Al Badayer

    Sorry guys, am out of this drive. Needed to get few things fixed on the car and it's not yet done.. looks like I will have to wait some more to get on top of iftar bowl... see you on the next drive... drive safe
  12. or alternatively we can drive in the reverse direction from Hamim and see where it will lead us.
