Rough Idle After New Oil Lines
So with all of the talk about Defenders spontaneously combusting, I decided to have my oil lines replaced. I took them to a local hose shop as has been suggested on the board, and 2 days later for $120, I had some pretty nice stainless lines. I futzed around getting them back on the engine, and at first couldn't get the plate between the engine and the filter tight, but ultimately I got it all back together with no leaking. Then the oil light was on but plenty of oil was on the dipstick. I noted that whatever little sensor is on the oil pump was getting a little smashed by the new lines, so I loosened the sandwich plate, rotated it a little to get the lines off the sensor, tightened everything, topped off a little oil and the oil light went off.
Now the engine is idling a little rough. It seems like it is nice and smooth and then it clunks and stumbles before returning to a smooth idle. When I tool around the neighborhood with RPM's around 2000+, it runs fine. The problem is only when the truck is idling which is at about 800 RPM's.
1) What's the problem?
2) Do I trust it enough to drive it 2.5 hours on a snowboarding excursion tomorrow?
Thanks for any help!
